Albert Einstein
The person who reads too much and uses his brain too little will fall into lazy habits of thinking.
Ambrose Bierce
The covers of this book are too far apart.
Christopher Morley
When you sell a man a book you don't sell him just 12 ounces of paper and ink and glue - you sell him a whole new life.

Elbert Hubbard
This will never be a civilized country until we expend more money for books than we do for chewing gum.
Ernest Hemingway
There is no friend as loyal as a book.
Friedrich Nietzsche
We do not belong to those who have ideas only among books, when stimulated by books. It is our habit to think outdoors - walking, leaping, climbing, dancing, preferably on lonely mountains or near the sea where even the trails become thoughtful.
GK Chesterton

A room without books is like a body without a soul.
Mark Twain
The man who does not read good books has no advantage over the man who cannot read them.
A classic is something that everybody wants to have read and nobody wants to read.
The man who does not read good books has no advantage over the man who cannot read them.
Ideally a book would have no order to it, and the reader would have to discover his own.
Martin Farquhar Tupper
A good book is the best of friends, the same to-day and for ever.
Oscar Wilde
But what is the difference between literature and journalism? Journalism is unreadable and literature is not read. That is all.
More than half modern culture depends on what one shouldn't read.
Robertson Davies
A truly great book should be read in youth, again in maturity and once more in old age, as a fine building should be seen by morning light, at noon and by moonlight.
T.S. Eliot
Our high respect for a well read person is praise enough for literature.
Thomas Jefferson
The man who reads nothing at all is better educated than the man who reads nothing but newspapers.
Victor Hugo
To learn to read is to light a fire; every syllable that is spelled out is a spark.
