Quotes About Beautiful Spaces

"An Afternoon in the StacksClosing the book, I find I have left my headinside. It is dark in here, but the chapters opentheir beautiful spaces and give a rustling sound,words adjusting themselves to their meaning.Long passages open at successive pages. An echo,continuous from the title onward, humsbehind me. From in here the world looms,a jungle redeemed by these linked sentencescarved out when an author traveled and a readerkept the way open.

But the rumorof it will haunt all that follows in my life.A candleflame in Tibet leans when I move." - Author: William Edgar Stafford
