"Books are engines of change,windows on the world, and (as a poet has said) “lighthouses erected in the sea of time.” They are companions, teachers, magicians, bankers of the treasures of the mind. Books are humanity in print."
I like the fact that the finder is re-releasing to a hospital department. I've released many books to hospitals over the years with a few catches but I always think I may have brightened up someone's waiting time even if they don't get caught. (I always take another book to read myself of course!).
