If one cannot enjoy reading a book over and over again, there is no use in reading it at all.
“Books are a hard-bound drug with no danger of an overdose. I am the happy victim of books.”

Infinity bookshelf by
“In the beginning was the word, the written word is unto eternity. A bookcase in the form of a lemniscate (the mathematical sign for infinity), full of books, words, shows the cycle of art. The way in which artworks endure, sometimes concealed, sometimes at eye level, close enough to touch, then forgotten for years, pushed away behind other books. The eternal performance of art. The public constantly changes in age and era. The words remain the same, and yet what is read changes from one age to the next.”
