In honor of Banned Book Week

Books are weapons in the war of ideas

Posted by the Boston Public Library.

I find the quote by Franklin D. Roosevelt to be powerful. A book represents the culmination of an idea.

The pages of a book might turn to ashes, molder into illegibility, or crumble with age, the idea spreads as they float on the winds of curiosity to fertile minds.
