  • Some are Born to sweet delight,

    Some are Born to endless Night.

    - William Blake

    Auguries of Innocence

    While some people, to borrow an insight from C.S. Lewis, read to know that they are not alone, the poor read to know that they are not condemned. It is often said that children are the wealth of the poor. This was not my experience. But books are without question the wealth of the poors' children. Books are a guiding light out of the underworld, a secret passageway, an escape hatch. To the affluent, books are ornaments. To the poor, books are siege weapons.

    - Joe Queenan    (Closing Time, pg 15)
