Books quotes
Books
Books and marriage go ill together.

- Moliere
Books had instant replay long before televised sports.

- Williams, Bert
In the highest civilization, the book is still the highest delight. He who has once known its satisfactions is provided with a resource against calamity.

- Ralph Waldo Emerson
Our planning system was dynamite when we first put it in. The thinking was fresh; the form mattered little. It was idea oriented. We then hired a head of planning, and he hired two vice presidents, and then he hired a planner; and the books got thicker, and the printing more sophisticated, and the covers got harder, and the drawings got better.

- Welch, John
Upon books the collective education of the race depends; they are the sole instruments of registering, perpetuating and transmitting thought.

- Henry C. Rogers
Literary imagination is an aesthetic object offered by a writer to a lover of books.

- Bachelard, Gaston
Books are never finished they are merely abandoned.

- Oscar Wilde
A house without books is like a room without windows. No man has a right to bring up his children without surrounding them with books, if he has the means to buy them. It is a wrong to his family. Children learn to read by being in the presence of books. The love of knowledge comes with reading and grows upon it. And the love of knowledge, in a young mind, is almost always a warrant against the inferior excitement of passions and vices.

- Mann, Horace
Books are the carriers of civilization. Without books, history is silent, literature dumb, science crippled, thought and speculation at a standstill. I think that there is nothing, not even crime, more opposed to poetry, to philosophy, ay, to life itself than this incessant business.

- Henry David Thoreau
We should be as careful of the books we read, as of the company we keep. The dead very often have more power than the living.

- Edwards, Tryon
Just the omission of Jane Austen's books alone would make a fairly good library out of a library that hadn't a book in it.

- Mark Twain
We notice things that don't work. We don't notice things that do. We notice computers, we don't notice pennies. We notice e-book readers, we don't notice books.

- Douglas Adams
Who ever converses among old books will be hard to please among the new.

- Temple, Sir William
All books are divisible into two classes: the books of the hour, and the books of all time.

- John Ruskin
The experience gathered from books, though often valuable, is but the nature of learning; whereas the experience gained from actual life is one of the nature of wisdom.

- Smiles, Samuel
No good poetry is ever written in a manner twenty years old, for to write in such a manner shows conclusively that the writer thinks from books, convention and clich?, not from real life.

- Pound, Ezra
It does not follow because many books are written by persons born in America that there exists an American literature. Books which imitate or represent the thoughts and life of Europe do not constitute an American literature. Before such can exist, an original idea must animate this nation and fresh currents of life must call into life fresh thoughts along the shore.

- Fuller, Margaret
A morning glory at my window satisfies me more than the metaphysics of books.

- Whitman, Walt
There are books so alive that you're always afraid that while you weren't reading, the book has gone and changed, has shifted like a river; while you went on living, it went on living too, and like a river moved on and moved away. No one has stepped twice into the same river. But did anyone ever step twice into the same book?

- Tsvetaeva, Marina
I still find each day too short for all the thoughts I want to think, all the walks I want to take, all the books I want to read, and all the friends I want to see.

- John Burrough
