Weekly Geeks-Quote of the Day

Todays weekly geeks post:

A truly great library contains something in it to offend everyone. ~Jo Godwin

So to follow the unicorn is to track one aspect of mankind's progress across 2500 years.It is a windy road with many charming vistas and many strange ones. Before stepping out on it le us deal with one negative expectation that might otherwiswe spoil the journey. For most of recorded history people thought that the unicorn existed. Recently we have come to know that it never did. So this book must end in disappointment. Not so. Unicorns did exist. There are photographs.-from The Natural History of Unicorns by Chris Lavers (introduction)
