Take the Case of the Book, John D. Moore , single work prose
'What are our personal reactions to books? This is answered by another question. What are our personal reactions to life? Books are the printed pages of life, real and fantastic, the past, the present, and the future, bound together, placed between covers, and made accessible to all; and as we react to life, so we react to books. As we react to books, so we react to our housing of them.'
