When you sell a man a book -

Lord! when you sell a man a book you don’t sell just twelve ounces of paper and ink and glue - you sell him a whole new life. Love and friendship and humour and ships at sea by night - there’s all heaven and earth in a book, a real book.
  - Christopher Morley

You have to be careful what you sell to a woman, though. They might not be able to handle the ideas.
