One of the great things about being married to my thoughtful husband is how he tries to constantly feed my many interests. On a trip to New York he came across a street that had wonderful quotes set along the sidewalk. I believe it was near a place they have dubbed Library Way. Knowing that I am a big fan of libraries and of course books, he took the time to snap a picture of some of these quotes. The one pictured here is by Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862) "Books are the treasured wealth of the world and the fit inheritance of generations and nations." Well said, plus the coins that are imprinted on the plaque add an extra meaning.
