Old Texts

Leon Wieseltier, Kaddish (New York: Vintage Books, 1998), p. 75:
I study the old texts because I hope to be infected by their dimensions, to attain the size of what I read.
Id., pp. 84-85:
Back and forth from my desk to my shelves, ten, twenty, thirty times a day. The sources swirl around me. I am drugged by books. The sweet savor rises from the pages. A delirium of study.
