Quote of the Day

The good of a book lies in being read. A book is made up of signs that speak of other signs, which in their turn speak of things. Without an eye to read them, a book contains signs that produce no concepts; therefore it is dumb.
Umberto Eco (1932 - )
Italian writer and literary scholar.
The Name of the Rose (William Weaver (tr.))
