Quote of the Day

"Books!! Pooh! Maps! BAH!! It's silly to squat in a hot room squinting at a lot of print! If you want to know about a thing, go to work in a shop or factory of that kind, and find out about it first-hand." —Old Bill Simpkins, inveighing against Branton Hills' new library, in Ernest Vincent Wright's Gadsby: A Story of Over 50,000 Words Without Using the Letter E (1939)
