"There are many people -- happy people, it usually appears -- whose thoughts at Christmas always turn to books.  The notion of a Christmas tree with no books under it is repugnant and unnatural to them."
 Robertson Davies  

"A truly great book should be read in youth, once again in maturity and once more in old age, as a fine building should be seen by morning light, at noon and by moonlight."   Robertson Davies  

"The man who is fond of books is usually a man of lofty thought, and of elevated opinions."  Christopher Dawson

"The world of books is the most remarkable creation of man nothing else that he builds ever lasts monuments fall; nations perish; civilization grow old and die out; new races build others. But in the world of books are volumes that have seen this happen again and again and yet live on.  Still young, still as fresh as the day they were written, still telling men's hearts, of the hearts of men centuries dead."
Clarence Day

"It is chiefly through books that we enjoy the intercourse with superior minds... They are the voices of the distant and the dead, and make us heirs of the spiritual life of past ages. Books are true levellers.  They give to all, who will faithfully use them, the society, the spiritual presence, of the best and greatest of our race. In the best books, great men talk to us, give us their most precious thought, and pour their souls into ours. God be thanked for books."
William Ellery Channing (1780-1842)

"A room without books is like a body without a soul."
Marcus T. Cicero  (106-43 B.C.)

"When you reread a classic, you do not see more in the book than you did before; you see more in you than there was before".  Clifton Fadiman  

"I suggest that the only books that influence us are those for which we are ready, and which have gone a little farther down our particular path than we have yet got ourselves."
  E.M. Forster  (1879-1970)

"What wild desires, what restless torments seize,
The hapless man who feels the book disease..."
 John Ferriar  (1761-1815)

"A house is not a home unless it contains food and fire for the mind as well as the body."  Margaret Fuller

"Some books leave us free, and some books make us free".
 Ralph Waldo Emerson

And you shall be full of delights
Let them be your mattress
And you shall sleep restful nights
St. EPHREM the Syrian (303-373)

"Stories are discoveries. Our ordinary lives are going on around us, but as we read stories, the ordinary drops away and, for a moment, the veil is pierced."
Elizabeth Evans

"Books are not rolls, only to be devoured when they are hot and fresh.  A good book retains its interior heat and will warm a generation yet unborn."
Clifton Fadiman

"All good books have one thing in common - they are truer than if they really happened and after you are finished reading one you will feel that all that happened to you and afterwards it all belongs to you: the good and the bad, the ecstasy, the remorse and sorrow, the people and the places and how the weather was."  Ernest Hemingway (1899-1961)
 
"Books may well be the only true magic."  Alice Hoffman
 
"The best of a book is not the thought which it contains, but the thought which it suggests; just as the charm of music dwells not in the tones but in the echoes of our hearts."  Oliver Wendell Holmes  (1802-1894)
 
"The books we read should be chosen with great care, that they may be, as an Egyptian king wrote over his library, "The medicines of the soul."  Paxton Hood
 
"Everything comes to him who waits, except a loaned book."
 Kin Hubbard
 
"Every man who knows how to read has it in his power to magnify himself, to multiply the ways in which he exists, to make his life full, significant and interesting."
 Aldous Huxley (1894-1963)
 
"The proper study of mankind is books."
 Aldous Huxley
 
"A good book is always on tap; it may be decanted and drunk a hundred times, and it is still there for further imbibement."  George Holbrook Jackson  (1874-1948)
