Quotes by May Lamberton Becker

"Books are like windows, not only to look at but to look through. Some, like some windows, open to nothing but a dead wall, in which case they are prettily draped and decorated; and if you must say something about them, you will have to talk about the decorations. Some look on a historical period... Now, anyone who has lived in hill-country knows that some windows have both a near and far view. A short-sighted person or one whose interests are all in the dooryard can get a good view of all that, but, to the longsighted, vistas open to the far hills."
