On hearing of a visiting Texan accidentally trapped in the basement of a Waterstones bookshop after closing time, I remembered the words I’d seen displayed in other Waterstones stores:
“We only have this moment, sparkling like a star in our hand – and melting like a snow flake…”
Sir Francis Bacon
“The World is a book, and those who do not travel, read only one page...”
Waterstones' words of comfort to a trapped Texan tweeting for help.
