Quote of the Week!

Because this is Banned Book Week, I thought it would be appropriate to have a couple of quotes which speak to this issue.

"Restriction on free thought and free speech is the most dangerous of all subversions. It is the one un-American act that could most easily defeat us."~William O. Douglas

"We all know that books burn, yet we have the greater knowledge that books cannot be killed by fire. People die, but books never die."~Franklin D. Roosevelt

Something to think about!

Pick up a book and read today! It's a democratic right that not everyone has.

These are some excellent quotes, NJ. I especially like the idea that you can never kill a thought or idea. No matter how much I may disagree with it, people have the right to have it.
