"Book Catalogues are to men of letters what the compass and the lighthouse are to the mariner, the rail-road to the merchant, the telegraph wires to the editor, the digested index to the lawyer, the pharmacopoeia and the dispensatory to the physician, the sign-post to the traveller, the screw, the wedge, and the lever, to the mechanic; in short, they are the labor-saving machines, the concordances, of literature.". ..Western Memorabilia.

"I have friends whose society is delightful to me: they are persons of all countries, and of all ages; distinguished in war, in council, and in letters; easy to live with, always at my command. They come at my call, and return when I desire them. They are never out of humour, and they answer all my questions with readiness. Some present in review before me the events of past ages; others reveal to me the secrets of nature. These teach me how to live, and those how to die: these dispel my melancholy by their mirth, and amuse me by their sallies of wit; and some there are who prepare my soul to suffer every thing, to desire nothing, and to become thoroughly acquainted with itself. In a word, they open the door to all the arts and sciences. As a reward of such great services, they require only a corner of my little house, where they may be safely sheltered from the depredations of their enemies. In fine, I carry them with me into the fields, the silence of which suits them better than the business and tumults of cities."
