1. It isn’t just a library. It is a space ship that will take you to the farthest reaches of the Universe, a time machine that will take you to the far past and the far future, a teacher that knows more than any human being, a friend that will amuse you and console you — and most of all, a gateway, to a better and happier and more useful life.

    — Isaac Asimov on libraries - from the Flavorwire’s 25 Writers on the Importance of Libraries. (via yolaleah)
