Amen, Brother Beecher

I subscribe to a daily newsletter from which includes a "Thought for Today" at the end. Yesterday's was a quote from Henry Ward Beecher, a man after my own heart:

"A little library, growing larger every year, is an honorable part of a man's history. It is a man's duty to have books. A library is not a luxury, but one of the necessaries of life."

I will no longer feel guilty about the growing number of books in my personal library. I'm only fulfilling my duty. Boy, am I fulfilling my duty.

Now I need a quote to cover my compulsive CD buying habit.
