Library Lines

Libraries are places where you can lose your innocence without losing your viginity.

the national library is ugly. well, maybe it's good-looking on the outside, but the inside is just horrendous, even more so with the renovations which are (were?) being carried out.

i think the inside of a library should be, if not beautiful, then at least well-organized or well-structured. the inside should indicate some sort of theory about the general architecture of knowledge.
