The Love of Books:
The Philobiblon of Richard de Bury

Translated into English by E. C. Thomas

“Take thou a book into thine hands as Simon the Just took the Child Jesus into his arms to carry Him and kiss Him. And when thou hast finished reading, close the book and give thanks for every word out of the mouth of God; because in the Lord’s field thou hast found a hidden treasure.”

— Thomas a Kempis: Doctrinale Juvenum
