Books that you
may carry to the fire,
and hold readily
in your hand,
are the most useful
after all.
   -- Samuel Johnson
   Life of Johnson, 1787


Books are
the treasured wealth
of the world
and fit inheritance
of generations
and nations.
   -- Henry D. Thoreau
   Walden: Reading, 1854

the great, fresh, unblighted, unredeemed wilderness.
