“Books don’t make people good. Lots of terrible and mediocre people read (and write). Books aren’t medicine. They fix nothing. Good books ask little and repay us with enjoyment and endurance.”

– Patrick Kurp, from a blogpost at his blog Anecdotal Evidence

[Ilustration: The Open Door by Peter Vilhelm Ilsted (Danish artist, 1861-1933)]
