Science Quotes by Barbara Tuchman (1 quote)
Books are the carriers of civilization. Without books, history is silent, literature dumb, science crippled, thought and speculation at a standstill. Without books the development of civilization would have been impossible. They are engines of change, windows on the world, lighthouses, (as a poet said), erected in the sea of time.
— Barbara Tuchman
