a storehouse,
a party,
a company by the way,
a counselor,
a multitude of counselors.

"Lord! when you sell a man a book you donít sell just twelve ounces of paper and ink and glue -- you sell him a whole new life. Love and friendship and humour and ships at sea by night -- thereís all heaven and earth in a book, a real book."

Christopher Morley, "Parnassus on Wheels"
