Esolen: Bulky, Inconvenient, Dangerous

“Books are bulky and inconvenient – like rocks, and trees, and rivers, and life…

A good book is a dangerous thing. In the wrong hands, it is like a bomb housed within a couple of red pasteboard covers. It can blow the world wide open; it can, if it’s Dante’s Divine Comedy, blow the reader as high as heaven.”

– Anthony Esolen, Ten Ways to Destroy the Imagination of Your Child (p. x)
