Medicine for the Soul

Medicine for the soul.  ~ Inscription over the door of the Library at Thebes

"There is no frigate like a book

To take us lands away,

Nor any coursers like a page

 Of prancing poetry.

This traverse may the poorest take

Without oppress of toll;

How frugal is the chariot

That bears a human soul!"

                     - Emily Dickinson

Oh My...now that was truly lovely...thank you Mo - I have a little Emily Dickinson book somewhere, I must look it out and read it again. Thank you so much for sharing and you were right, it must be a `bookish` day in Blogland today!

Loving this. Books are very precious to me. I cannot understand how our modern technology thought it could replace them.
So soulful. What a beautiful post.

And thank you for the Follow! :)

I can't decide which library I want to copy in my home:) I think I like the one with all the books on the beautiful staircase. Wonderful pictures Mo.

Loved your post today because I LOVE books! I am one person that will never succumb to e-gadgets for reading a book. I own tons of them and find it very hard to part with most of them.

I just was enjoying your latest saying with art. Beautiful. Evertime I get one design, you have already made a new one that is so perfect. Thank you, Amber Rose
