"In almost every Jewish home, even in the humblest and poorest, stood a bookcase full of volumes; proud and stately folio-tomes together with shy small-sized books. Books were neither an asylum for the frustrated nor a means for occasional edification. They were furnaces of living strength, time-proof receptacles for the eternally valid coins of spirit.../... Korets, Karlin, Bratzlav, Lubavich, Ger, Lublin -hundreds of little towns were like holy books."

Abraham J. Heschel
