Knowing I lov’d my books, he furnish’d me
From mine own library with volumes that
I prize above my dukedom.
William Shakespeare (1564 – 1616), “The Tempest”, Act 1 scene 2

“We owe it to every child to put him in communication with the great minds that he may get at the great thoughts; with the minds, that is, of those who have left us great works; and the only vital method of education appears to be that children should read worthy books, many worthy books”
