"...a library, more than any other thing humans have ever made, is the physical promise of a wider, more inclusive world.
A library teaches us about the potential for human knowledge to bring us to a better place.
A library challenges our perceptions. A library shows us that there is more to religion than zealotry, more to belief than delusion, more to the search for meaning than fanatical heresies.
A library presents to us, gives to us, for free, the benefits of human inquiry and allows us the time, and space, and resources to connect all of these things in ways that no one before has managed to do.
A library is the embodied fact that the search to be more and better can win over the petty, bullshit that fanatics of all stripes want us to swallow. A library is the place we can go to become more, stronger, and better.
And fanatics and conquerors—especially those who believe their world-view must be unquestioned—cannot have that kind of resource available to the people whom they are working so very hard to subjugate."
