The Long Road to Knowledge

For this piece I envisioned a book. My choice was a dictionary, for it is in essence a small scale library. I opened the dictionary to a random page and attached it to the head, only noticing later that the three words in the middle of the page held so much meaning and value. Was this synchronicity? I couldn't tell, but the words "liberty", "libido" and "library" summarize in a nutshell some of the most important steps one might take on the path to knowledge.
