A book is like a man -- clever and dull, brave and cowardly, beautiful and ugly. For every flowering thought there will be a page like a wet and mangy mongrel, and for every looping flight a tap on the wing and a reminder that wax cannot hold the feathers firm too near the sun.

    책은 사람과 같아 영리하고 둔하고 용감하고 비겁하고 아름답고 못생긴 사람입니다. 모든 꽃 생각에 습식 및 잡종 잡종과 같은 페이지가있을 것이고, 모든 반복 비행에는 날개를 두드리고 왁스가 태양 근처에서 깃털을 너무 단단히 고정시킬 수 없다는 것을 상기시켜줍니다.
