God didn’t send His Son to die for a bunch of sinners and hypocrites, He sent His Son to die for a bunch of sinners and hypocrites who have the potential to become sons of God, because that’s who He really saw us as. That was the joy set before Him, the bigger picture of the cross. Faith in Christ changes the heart and empowers the life and we live by our faith.
A library is never complete. That’s the joy of it. We are always seeking one more book to add to our collection.— Catherynne M. Valente, The Girl Who Fell Beneath Fairyland and Led the Revels There. (via falling-inlove-with-books)
Librarians are well known for sneaking in books by dangerous authors. In 1988, two copies of “Pride and Prejudice” were found in Night Vale. No one knows quite how many people read these copies, but the ensuing riots inconvenienced hundreds and led to the current cleaning schedule.— Welcome to Night Vale, episode 54: A Carnival Comes to Town (via the-librarians-of-night-vale)

YES! This is such a problem in the reference department. I even saw an article in a proffesional journal discussing the death and kidnapping of academic staplers.
