achievement, and I can never be sufficiently grateful that I had the wit to
charge through that door and make the most of it
- Isaac Asimov

When I graduated from high school, it was during the Depression and we had no money.
I couldn’t go to college, so I went to the library three days a week for 10 years.

The love of learning, the sequestered nooks,
And all the sweet serenity of books.
