This is one of my favorite quotes. If someone doesn't like books (especially old ones) I tend to think that they are a little addled in their head.
I would agree and sometimes we need to read the old books to put the new one's in perspective.
Great quote. As C.S. Lewis said,, we need "to keep the clean sea breeze of the centuries blowing through our minds, and this can be done only by reading old books."
Great quote as long as you don't apply it to blogs. :)
