On Librarians

“A librarian can be one of a number of things. He can be almost a pure scholar or he can be a technician … or he can be a pure administrator, or he … can just be a nice chap to have around, which is the role I vaguely thought I filled.”

Philip Larkin, as quoted in Andrew Motion, Philip Larkin: A Writer’s Life.
