Quote Of The Week

some of my friends crack jokes about how particular and careful i am about my books. so for my response to them, i put up this quote:

“if you would know how a man treats his wife and his children, see how he treats his books.”
– ralph waldo emerson

do you think that’s true? how do you think ralph drew that conclusion?

    I think Mr. Waldo here was a bibliophile like you. You both have an unnatural obsession with books! LOL.

    lol. funny…but if you look here:http://ninjawords.com/bibliophileyou will see that a synonym for bibliophile is a “scholar”. so maybe mr waldo and i are just smarter than everyone else. maybe 10 years from now, it will be normal to take great care of your books. lolhow terrible would it be if barnes and noble didn’t take care of their books? 🙂
