“But in a library, you can count yourself as king of infinite space. You can find a spell for the refreshment of the spirit in every story you read, and every story can be something you live. There’s one sense in which all of these individual books are, as it were, like little portals through which you can travel into another world, and have a great freedom, much greater than the one your government allows you, because you’re not allowed to go outside. And that’s a consolation…” – Malcolm Guite

If you like that one, don’t miss the conversation that preceded it:
Enjoy other visits to Malcolm’s study at youTube. Say yes when he invites you to tea.
