For unknown reasons, these  ephemeral creatures are doomed to haunt libraries with nothing but the volumes of books to entertain them for all eternity.  They’ve read the books so many times that they have come to know the larger patterns and predictability of life with which most humans struggle. Therefore, they have very little sympathy with the human plight. If they bother to speak at all, they will quip-out some condensed piece of wisdom in a tone that bespeaks an unsympathetic character like,Life is short or  Lost time is never found again or Only that which always existed can be eternal.


1. A terse saying embodying a general truth, or astute observation.
