Thomas Moore on books

“I wish I had all the books I have ever owned, because I’m beginning to see that any book might offer just one thread in the tapestry of understanding, and that that one thought or image is worth the poundage and price of a book. Nor is meaning enough to explain the preciousness of a single book, for there is something about the mere existence of a book on the shelf that makes it a treasure and helps enchant one’s life and home. ” – Thomas Moore
