A Great Quote from Eric Burns

“The library is not, as some would have it, a place for the retiring of disposition or faint of heart. It is not an ivory tower or a quiet room in a sanitarium facing away from the afternoon sun. It is, rather, a command center, a power base, a board room, a war room, an Oval Office for all who preside over their own destinies. One does not retreat from the world here; one prepares to join it at an advantage.”
