A library is the brass ring to the Merry-Go-Round of Life. It holds wisdom, history, stories, and opens the mind. These quotations on libraries from Charles French are brilliant. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
charles french words reading and writing
“I have always imagined that Paradise will be a kind of library.”
Jose Luis Borges
“The only thing that you absolutely have to know, is the location of the library.”
“A library is a place where you can live a thousand lives. So why are you waiting when you could be living? Visit your library today.”
Libraries, our key to so many worlds.
All knowledge. All wisdom. All the stories. All the thoughts and all the dreams!!
Hope you are doing well Jenny!!
Opher!! So good to hear from you. Yes, all you say is true. I am doing well. How did you drop off the face of the earth? Did you take a long blogging break?
No Jennie. I’m still blogging away but I think wordpress did something. I stopped receiving posts and my traffic dropped by two-thirds! It put me out of contact with lots of people. Do you know how Cheryl is?
Shame on WP. They have dropped my bloggers in the past, but never in a large quantity like you experienced. Refresh my memory on Cheryl.
Charles always finds the best quotes! 🙂
Best wishes, Pete.
Yes, he does! Best to you, Pete. I have been in a heavy work load at school, will catch up soon.
No need, Jennie. Life comes first. 🙂
It does…and now I’m sick. Overload is not so easy when you’re in your 70’s. Best to you, Pete.
Get well soon, dear Jennie. x
Will do, dear Pete. I’m off to bed.
libraries are gold
Love this, Jennie. Thanks.
Thank you, John.
Words of wisdom.
A terrific reminder of the power of the public library!
Thank you, John! Well said.
Hi Jennie, Thank you so much!
You are welcome, Charles!
what a clever post!
and love this “live a thousand lives” – 🙂 the library is a great place
Thank you, Prior. The library is a great place in so many ways.
We have a new one in my area that adds one more element of beauty – the architecture !
but your post reminded me that we do take for granted what a libr
ary card can offer
I think beautiful architecture is a big draw, then once inside, the library card becomes all-important. Many thanks, Prior.
Yes and I also can’t help buying some of the books for sale
WP are a pain. Shame really. Cheryl was Calenserial.
I don’t remember Cheryl. What was the name of her blog?
Can’t quite remember!
A wonderful post.
Can you say where the picture was made. Thanks
Well, this was a reblog of a Charles French post. I imagine he got the photos of the men who made the quotations online, but I don’t know that for sure. You could ask him.
The pics are interesting to me. There is nothing more. Thank you.
I agree – libraries are the crown jewels of a community!
