Francisco José Viegas in "The house of books"

How libraries are like the only dreams: see if it is really important because, in some way, it transforms our life, or disturbed or touched somewhere. The library is therefore not just a book house. All of them as images of the world, dreams, laughter, fear, stomach pain, sheltered and waiting for an opportunity to visit those who visit, leaflets of a book, ignoring one page at the expense of another, closing a chapter of the book consultation, which is like who says - from consulting the world.
