Reader's and Writer's Paradise - the Library Quotes & Contemplation
“I have always imagined that Paradise will be a kind of library.”― Jorge Luis Borges
Don’t you love quotes from people you respect – or quotes that are just fun? Do you look at them and contemplate any deeper layers of meaning? Or does it just tickle something within you that responds and makes it your own?
Like the quote above. I’m not saying it has many deep layers of meaning, but isn’t it fun to contemplate? I’m a writer and a reader. I can’t help it, it speaks to me.
Have you thought of such a thing? I mean I’m not really into gold-paved streets, etc. I’d be much happier with a great library. A wonderful library complete with all the books of the world and including the fabulous Ereaders on where there are stored even more books!
Ah, yes, paradise. In heaven or on earth, it must be well stocked with books and scripts. And since we’re talking paradise here, they must be well-written fiction books and scripts packed with gripping tales and/or non-fiction with mind-boggling information I would have never considered on my own. You too?
Mind-expanding fun. I mean libraries are the repositories of books, knowledge and these days, much more with access to electronic books, the web, music, TV, movies and pretty much everything else.
The other wonderful thing about libraries is that anyone can go. Wow. Really. I mean what forethought the ancients and then the more moderns had when libraries came into being. Never ending education and entertainment is available within those walls. It’s peaceful. It’s fulfilling. It offers up worlds we haven’t even dreamed of.
Seriously, if you haven’t been to your local library in a while, it would be very much worth your time…that is until paradise library actually exists.
