Quotation of the Week
“‘It must be sad for them,’ observed Mma Ramotswe reflectively.
‘If it is your job to read books and you can never get to the end of them.
You think that you have read all the books
and suddenly you see that there are some new ones that have arrived.
Then what do you do?
You have to start over again.’”
—from The Full Cupboard of Life, by Alexander McCall Smith
= Available at Sembach Library
