Wayfarers in the Bookshop

Three Men in a Boat by Jerome K. Jerome
“Though books, as Milton says, may be the embalming of mighty spirits, they are also the resurrection of rebellious, reactionary, fantastical, and wicked spirits! In books dwell all the demons and all the angels of the human mind. it is for this reason that a a bookshop - especially a second-hand bookshop / antiquarian - is an arsenal of explosives, an armory of revolutions, an opium den of reaction." - John Cowper Powys
