"A book is a link between the past and the future. It is a bridge between generations and across cultures. It is a force for creating and sharing wisdom and knowledge." - excerpt of the message from Ms Irina Bokova, Director-General of UNESCO on the occasion of the World Book and Copyright Day.
"A window onto our inner lives, books are also the doorway to mutual respect and understanding between people, across all boundaries and differences" - Ms. Irina Bokava
