Life would lose half of its charm if books were banished from the world. Books are the friends of the friendless. 'Perhaps no other thing has such power to lift the poor out of his poverty, the wretched out of his misery, to make the burden bearer forget his burden, the sick his suffering, the sorrow his grief,  the down- trodden his degeradation, as books. They are friends to the lonely, companions to the deserted, joy to the joyless, good cheer to the disheartened, a helper to the helpless and a consoler to the afflicted. They bring light into the darkness and sunshine into shadow"
