Just creating this page in case people want to peek behind the scenes and see something interesting. Not that I'm going to have much to offer. How about some inspirational quotes..?

 The oldest books are still only just out to those who have not read them.
 — Samuel Butler
 It is what you read when you don't have to, that determines what you will be when you can't help it.
 — Oscar Wilde
 As the world is not inhabited entirely by specialists, the inference is that books of all kinds, good as well as indifferent,
 lie hidden away in obscure places, waiting the coming of some appreciative explorer who will rescue them from the neglect of
 many years, and restore them to the world from whence they came.
 — J. Herbert Slater (The Romance of Book-Collecting.)
 The great composter does not set to work because he is inspired, but becomes inspired because he is working.  Beethoven,
 Wagner, Bach and Mozart settled down day after day to the job in hand with as much regularity as an accountant settles 
 down each day to his figures. They didn't waste time waiting for inspiration.
 — Ernest Newman
 Criticism is something we can avoid easily by saying nothing, doing nothing, and being nothing. 
 — Aristotle
