Respect books

Noted the following from the walls of Borders @ Times Square today:-

"Books are the quietest and most constant of friends, they are the most accessible and wisest of counsellors and the most patient of teachers."
-Charles W. Eliot

"Books are the carriers of civilisation. Without books, history is silent, literature dumb, science crippled, thought & speculation at a standstill."
-Barbara Tuchman

By the way, "...respect books..." was the theme for 2006 World Book Day.
