Quote of the Day: Barbara W. Tuchman

by A Latter-day Bluestocking

Tuchman-Barbara“Books are the carriers of civilization.  Without books, history is silent, literature dumb, science crippled, thought and speculation at a standstill.  They are engines of change, windows on the world, lighthouses erected in the sea of time.  They are companions, teachers, magicians, bankers of the treasures of the mind. Books are humanity in print.”  Barbara W. Tuchman, 1912–1989
