  1. Sensual Delight

    How differently do mental pleasures
    Lead us from book to book to roam
    And ever, with these ancient treasures,
    How cheerful winter nights become!

    A happy life grows warm in every limb;
    And if a precious parchment you unroll,
    Your senses in delight appear to swim
    And heaven itself descends upon your sould.

    – J.W. Goethe (1749-1832)

  2. “Outside of a dog, a book is man’s best friend.
    Inside of a dog, its too dark to read”
    — Groucho Marx 🙂
