Books are the engines of change, windows on the world, lighthouses erected in the sea of time. They are companions, teachers, magicians, guardians of the treasures of the mind. Books are humanity in print.

~Sir Ian McKellen (quoting Barbara W. Tuchman and others) at the Paralympic Opening Ceremony.
