Chapter Seventeen, in which an Interlude of Quotations appears

"The greatest public benefactor is the man distributing good books."
--William E. Gladstone

Books are quiet. They do not dissolve into wavy lines or snowstorm effects. They do not pause to deliver commercials. they are three-dimensional, having length, breadth and depth. They are convenient to handle and completely portable."
--Lucia Mouat

When you sell a man a book you don't sell him just twelve ounces of paper and ink and glue--you sell him a whole new life."
--Christopher Morley in "Parnassus on Wheels
