Inspiring Quote for Book Lovers

We wish our book to live when we shall be sleeping the years away. Yes, and live it will. This is the frightful thought. LIVE IT WILL. A mistake from the pulpit may soon be forgotten – should we make a mistake in an article furnished a paper or periodical, it may be lost or worn out, and soon pass away; but a book will live on, when he who wrote it lives only in the work left behind him.

– T. W. Brents, preface to The Gospel Plan of Salvation, Richmond, TN, February 10, 1874
