"A public library is the most democratic thing in the world. What can be found there has undone dictators and tyrants: demagogues can persecute writers and tell them what to write as much as they like, but they cannot vanish what has been written in the past, though they try often enough…People who love literature have at least part of their minds immune from indoctrination. If you read, you can learn to think for yourself."
“Whatever you’re meant to do, do it now. The conditions are always impossible.”
― RIP Nobel Laureate Doris Lessing (22 October 1919 – 17 November 2013)
