Quotation of the Week

“We don’t want to feel less when we have finished a book;
we want to feel that new possibilities of being have been opened to us.
We don’t want to close a book with the sense that life is totally unfair and that there is no light in the darkness;
we want to feel that we have been given illumination.”
–Madeleine L’Engle, Walking on Water
= Available at Sembach Library

Sonder is a German prefix meaning "special."
