It's Called Gratitude
W.W. Norton is thankful for the people who write our books, sell our books, and read our books.
“I find myself fighting back tears… partly because of the acceptance speech I heard before me… my book is about the power of books to cross boundaries, to speak impossibly across space and time and distance… what the magic of the written word is and about the strangeness of a poem written two thousand years ago, a great poem and a difficult poem disappearing for a thousand years, and then coming back.” —
from Stephen Greenblatt’s National Book Award acceptance speech (via wwnorton)
