An ornament of grace

Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom, and with all thy getting get understanding. Exalt her and she shall promote thee; she shall bring thee to honour when thou dost embrace her, she shall give of thine head an ornament of grace, a crown of glory she shall deliver to thee.
Proverbs 4:7

This text lines the ceiling of the inner dome of the Great Hall of the Central Library in Manchester. The library will be closing for refurbishment on 1st April, so following a groovy reading event last night, thought I'd remind everyone to go and take a walk around this beautiful space - it will be a few years before it reopens.
