To Developers (Mammon Led Them On)
"All that come here to seek treasure will not take away gold
but the seeker after truth and instruction will find that which enrich the mind and heart."
Words & images from the Brooklyn Heights library façade
"Mammon led them on—
Mammon, the least erected Spirit that fell
From Heaven: for even in Heaven his looks and thoughts
Were always downward bent, admiring more
The riches of Heaven's pavement, trodden gold,
Than aught divine or holy else enjoyed
In vision beatific."
John Milton, Paradise Lost
