Adriaan van der Weel, Bits of paper with traces of black ink are not bytes of ink on sheets of e-paper, 2011

[O]f the things man can do or make here below, by far the most momentous, wonderful and worthy are the things we call Books! ... The thing we called "bits of paper with traces of black ink" is the purest embodiment a Thought of man can have.

(Thomas Carlyle, On heroes, hero-worship, and the heroic in history, 1840, p.195)
