Libraries keep the records on behalf of all humanity. the unique and the absurd, the wise and the fragments of stupidity.
– Vartan Gregorian
Beauty is that little something that fills the whole world, and is contained neither in a single straight nose, a long eyelash, nor a blue mountain. Some see it in a leg of mutton, others in a compound fracture; and to expect others to accept one’s own definition of it is as absurd as to expect all humanity to use the same toilet-brush.
– William Morris Hunt
