Quote, Unquote : Nicky Wire


“There’s a tendency to resort to romantic cliche when talking about libraries; clearly in a digital age they aren’t a ‘sexy’ alternative. Maybe I’m old fashioned but I still believe that the core of libraries will always be printed words rather than screens or keyboards.
In any town or city, you can walk in and pick up the works of TS Eliot or Bret Easton Ellis, extremes of taste that you can dip into and thumb through without having anyone nudging you to make a purchase. There really aren’t many things in life that can enrich you for free yet ask for nothing in return.
We need to cherish these things while they still exist. Seek solace, seek knowledge. Seek power.”
