"Critics who treat ‘adult’ as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adult themselves. To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence. And in childhood and adolescence they are, in moderation, healthy symptoms. Young things ought to want to grow. But to carry on into middle life or even into early manhood this concern about being adult is a mark of really arrested development. When I was ten, I read fairy tales in secret and would have been ashamed if I had been found doing so. Now that I am fifty I read them openly. When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up."

C.S. Lewis, On Three Ways of Writing for Children (1952)

"Even you are not rich enough, Sir Robert, to buy back your past. No man is."

Oscar Wilde (Mrs Cheveley, “An Ideal Husband”)

El Condor Pasa (If I Could)

I’d rather be a sparrow than a snail,
Yes I would, if I could, I surely would.
I’d rather be a hammer than a nail,
Yes I would, if I only could, I surely would.

Away, I’d rather sail away,
Like a swan that’s here and gone.
A man gets tied up to the ground,
He gives the world it’s saddest sound,
Its saddest sound.

I’d rather be a forest than a street,
Yes I would, if I could, I surely would,
I’d rather feel the earth beneath my feet,
Yes I would, if I only could, I surely would.

"Too many books?" I believe the phrase you’re looking for is "not enough bookshelves".
