Symposium in the Bookshop

The Old Ways: A Journey on Foot by Robert Macfarlane

"At the touch of love everyone becomes a poet" - Plato, The Symposium

 "I do not remember a time when I could not read, nor any time when reading was not a joy and a solace." - Emmeline Pankhurst

 "Every work that isn't a masterpiece is, in a sense, a part of a vast camouflage. You've been a soldier, I imagine, and you know what I mean. Every book that isn't a masterpiece is cannon fodder, a slogging foot soldier, a piece to be sacrificed, since in multiple ways it mimics the design of the masterpiece." - Roberto BolaƱo
