About this product
- DescriptionExcerpt from Books and How to Make the Most of Them A book is a miracle wrought by human agency. What more wonderful than that the thought of a lifetime should be made visible and concentrated so as to be carried in the pocket; that black lines and dots upon a white page should bring before our minds the most beautiful images. More remarkable than the telegraph or the telephone, a book t only annihilates space but time, and carries the voice of David or Homer across the seas of the ages. The miracle of the widow's cruse finds its literal realization in a book. We may take all we can from it but there is just as much left for others with the sole limitation that he gets the most from books who has the most kwledge; to him that hath is given.
