"Remarkable Creation of Man"

"The world of books is the most remarkable creation of man:
nothing else that he builds ever lasts - monuments fall; nations perish;
civilizations grow old and die out; new races build others.
But in the world of books are volumes that have seen
this happen again and again and yet live on.
Still young, still as fresh as the day they were written,
still telling men's hearts, of the hearts of men centuries dead."
~ Clarence Day

    Interesting...it's amazing what lives on bookwise and what doesn't.
