মহাসমুদ্রের শত বৎসরের কল্লোল কেহ যদি এমন করিয়া বাঁধিয়া রাখিতে পারিত যে, সে ঘুমাইয়া পড়া শিশুটির মতো চুপ করিয়া থাকিত, তবে সেই নীরব মহাশব্দের সহিত এই লাইব্রেরির তুলনা হইত। এখানে ভাষা চুপ করিয়া আছে, প্রবাহ স্থির হইয়া আছে, মানবাত্মার অমর আলোক কালো অক্ষরের শৃঙ্খলে কাগজের কারাগারে বাঁধা পড়িয়া আছে। ইহারা সহসা যদি বিদ্রোহী হইয়া উঠে, নিস্তব্ধতা ভাঙিয়া ফেলে, অক্ষরের বেড়া দগ্ধ করিয়া একেবারে বাহির হইয়া আসে! হিমালয়ের মাথার উপরে কঠিন বরফের মধ্যে যেমন কত কত বন্যা বাঁধা আছে, তেমনি এই লাইব্রেরির মধ্যে মানবহৃদয়ের বন্যা কে বাঁধিয়া রাখিয়াছে
