A book and the librarian - Umberto Eco

This quote was added by hexomino
A book is a fragile creature. It suffers the wear of time. It fears rodents, the elements and clumsy hands. So the librarian protects the books not only against mankind but also against nature and devotes his life to this war with the forces of oblivion.
