Abstract

We leave behind our work, whether noble or not, whether known or unknown; we leave it for others to pick up and make it better. It has been, especially for librarians, a “follow[ing] of knowledge like a sinking star” that Ulysses later remarks upon. I love that line because it so expresses what it is to see knowledge so close, so clearly, and yet always to be grasping after it, reaching for it as it fades over the horizon of our youth.
