Description

Gutta cavat lapidem non bis, sed saepe cadendo; sic homo fit sapiens non bis, sed saepe legend” ~

A drop drills a rock by falling not twice, but many times; so too is a human made smart by reading not two, but many books. (Giordano Bruno).

“Helluo librorum” ~ A glutton for books (bookworm).

“In libris libertas” ~ In books (there is) freedom.

“Quiescit Anima Libris“ ~ The soul (spirit) finds respite in books. (respite: rest, relief)
