each are a world; and books, we know,
Are a substantial

Our pastimes and
our happiness will grow.

carriers of civilization. Without books, history is silent, literature
dumb, science crippled, thought and speculation at a standstill. Books are
humanity in print.
Tuchman, Author's League Bulletin, November 1979.
The biggest seller
is cookbooks and the second is diet books -- how not to eat what you've just
learned how to cook.
It seems odd that certain who talk so much of what the Holy Spirit reveals to
themselves, should think so little of what he has revealed to others.
