[Zitat] Unkommentiert – 1893-1950

“Werter Herr, die Tatsache, daß ein Buch in einer öffentlichen Bibliothek zugänglich ist, tröstet mich keineswegs. Bücher sind die einzige Sache, bei der ich schlicht und einfach habsüchtig bin. Wäre es nicht der Gesetze wegen, ich würde sie stehlen. Wäre es nicht meiner Börse wegen, ich würde sie kaufen.”

( Harold Joseph Laski )


“Sir, the fact that the book is in a public library brings no comfort. Books are the one element in which I am personally and nakedly acquisitive. If it weren’t for the law I would steal them. If it weren’t for my purse I would buy them.”

 “The art of not reading is a very important one. It consists in not taking an interest in whatever may be engaging the attention of the general public at any particular time. When some political or ecclesiastical pamphlet, or novel, or poem is making a great commotion, you should remember that he who writes for fools always finds a large public. A precondition for reading good books is not reading bad ones: for life is short.”  Arthur Schopenhauer

“When I think of the library of Alexandria and of the fact that, although it burnt down, people continue to sort the letters of the alphabet according to that tradition, then that makes certain expressions of modernity, even of interventions on the textual level, possible.” Alexander Kluge

But libraries are about freedom. Freedom to read, freedom of ideas, freedom of communication. They are about education (which is not a process that finishes the day we leave school or university), about entertainment, about making safe spaces, and about access to information. I worry that here in the 21st century people misunderstand what libraries are and the purpose of them. If you perceive a library as a shelf of books, it may seem antiquated or outdated in a world in which most, but not all, books in print exist digitally. But that is to miss the point fundamentally. Neil Gaiman

With her debut memoir Just Kids, Patti Smith proved her literary voice to be just as powerful as her musical one. Her new memoir, M Train, holds the same elegant prose and tells more of her powerful, poignant story. Smith comes to LIVE to discuss this new work.

PATTI SMITH is the author of Just Kids, which won the National Book Award in 2010, and of five collections of poetry. Her seminal album Horses has been hailed as one of the top 100 albums of all time. In 2005, the French Ministry of Culture awarded Smith the title of Commandeur des Arts et des Lettres; she was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2007. She lives in New York City.
