from Milton - Areopagitica (1644):

Books are not absolutely dead things, but doe contain a potencie of life in them to be as active as that soule was whose progeny they are; nay they do preserve as in a violl the purest efficacie and extraction of that living intellect that bred them... a good book is the pretious lifeblood of a master spirit, imbalm'd and treasur'd upon purpose to a life beyond life.
