“Viva nos livros um momento, aprenda neles o que lhe parece digno de ser aprendido, mas, antes de tudo, ame-os. Este amor ser-lhe-á retribuído milhares de vezes e, como quer que se torne a sua vida, ele passará a fazer parte, estou certo, do tecido de seu ser, como uma das fibras mais importantes, no meio das suas experiências, desilusões e alegrias.”
