Picture Quote:



Dust as we are, the immortal spirit grows 
 Like harmony in music; there is a dark 
 Inscrutable workmanship that reconciles 
 Discordant elements, makes them cling together 
 In one society.  - William Wordsworth

Quote of the day

A house without books is like a room without windows. No man has a right to bring up his children without surrounding them with books, if he has the means to buy them. It is wrong to his family. Children learn to read by being in the presence of books. The love of knowledge comes with reading and grows upon it. And the love of knowledge, in a young mind, is almost a warrant against the inferior excitement of passions and vices.
