"Buy truth, and do not sell it; buy wisdom, instruction, and understanding." - Proverbs 23:23 ESV
"My books are my tools. They also serve as my counsel, and my comfort. They are my friends and my delights." - C.H. Spurgeon (1834 -1892)
I guess there are worse ways to die, but at the time the idea of being crushed and buried under a tomb of tomes was unsettling. I am a bibliophile, but this place made me claustrophobic!
Read, not to contradict or confute, nor to believe and take for granted, nor to find talk and discourse, but to weigh and consider.
Some books are to be tasted, others to be swallowed, and some few to be chewed and digested.
