It is an accepted biological fact that a growing organism alone will
survive. An organism which ceases to grow will petrify and perish. The Fifth Law invites our attention to the fact that the library, as an institution, has all the attributes of a growing organism. A growing
organism takes in new matter, casts off old matter, changes in size and takes new shapes and forms.

— Ranganathan (1931). (via jamiebrarian)

Got it? Good. 

Uh, buying me things isn’t going to make me love you. Diamonds, books, whatever.

Also, I have a library card, so I’m pretty set.
