Books
I declare after all there is no enjoyment like reading! How much sooner one tires of anything than of a book! When I have a house of my own, I shall be miserable if I have not an excellent library.

- Jane Austen
DEPUTY, n. A male relative of an office-holder, or of his bondsman. The deputy is commonly a beautiful young man, with a red necktie and an intricate system of cobwebs extending from his nose to his desk. When accidentally struck by the janitor's broom, he gives off a cloud of dust. "Chief Deputy," the Master cried, "To-day the books are to be tried By experts and accountants who Have been commissioned to go through Our office here, to see if we Have stolen injudiciously. Please have the proper entries made, The proper balances displayed, Conforming to the whole amount Of cash on hand -- which they will count. I've long admired your punctual way -- Here at the break and close of day, Confronting in your chair the crowd Of business men, whose voices loud And gestures violent you quell By some mysterious, calm spell -- Some magic lurking in your look That brings the noisiest to book And spreads a holy and profound Tranquillity o'er all around. So orderly all's done that they Who came to draw remain to pay. But now the time demands, at last, That you employ your genius vast In energies more active. Rise And shake the lightnings from your eyes; Inspire your underlings, and fling Your spirit into everything!" The Master's hand here dealt a whack Upon the Deputy's bent back, When straightway to the floor there fell A shrunken globe, a rattling shell A blackened, withered, eyeless head! The man had been a twelvemonth dead. Jamrach Holobom

- Ambrose Bierce
People say to me so often,'Jane how can you be so peaceful when everywhere around you people want books signed, people are asking these questions and yet you seem peaceful,'and I always answer that it is the peace of the forest that I carry inside.

- Jane Goodall
Borrowers of books --those mutilators of collections, spoilers of the symmetry of shelves, and creators of odd volumes.

- Lamb, Charles
We are motivated by a keen desire for praise, and the better aman is the more he is inspired by glory. The very philosophers themselves, even in those books which they write in contempt of glory, inscribe their names.

- Marcus Tullius Cicero
I have a new method of poetry. All you got to do is look over your notebooks... or lay down on a couch, and think of anything that comes into your head, especially the miseries. Then arrange in lines of two, three or four words each, don't bother about sentences, in sections of two, three or four lines each.

- Ginsberg, Allen
Wear the old coat and buy the new book.

- Austin Phelps
Without words, without writing and without books there would be no history, there could be no concept of humanity.

- Hermann Hesse
There is no such thing as amoral book or an immoral book. Books are well written or badly written. That is all.

- Oscar Wilde
The only obligation to which in advance we may hold a novel, without incurring the accusation of being arbitrary, is that it be interesting.

- Henry James
My books kept me from the ring, the dog-pit, the tavern, and the saloon.

- Hood, Thomas
It's a good thing for an uneducated man to read books of quotations.

- Sir Winston Churchill
Books won't stay banned. They won't burn. Ideas won't go to jail. In the long run of history, the censor and the inquisitor have always lost. The only sure weapon against bad ideas is better ideas.

- Alfred Whitney Griswold
The human mind is not capable of grasping the Universe. We are like a little child entering a huge library. The walls are covered to the ceilings with books in many different tongues. The child knows that someone must have written these books. It does not know who or how. It does not understand the languages in which they are written. But the child notes a definite plan in the arrangement of the books - a mysterious order which it does not comprehend, but only dimly suspects.

- Albert Einstein
Self-help books are making life downright unsafe. Women desperate to catch a man practice all the ploys recommended by these authors. Bump into him, trip over him, knock him down, spill something on him, scald him, but meet him.

- King, Florence
If a secret history of books could be written, and the authorís private thoughts and meanings noted down alongside of his story, how many insipid volumes would become interesting, and dull tales excite the reader!

- William Makepeace Thackeray
USAGE, n. The First Person of the literary Trinity, the Second and Third being Custom and Conventionality. Imbued with a decent reverence for this Holy Triad an industrious writer may hope to produce books that will live as long as the fashion.

- Ambrose Bierce
From the moment I picked up your book until I laid it down, I was convulsed with laughter. Some day I intend reading it.

- Groucho Marx
Most books today seemed to have been written overnight from books read the day before.

- Chamfort, Sebastien-Roch Nicolas De
If some books are deemed most baneful and their sale forbid, how, then, with deadlier facts, not dreams of doting men? Those whom books will hurt will not be proof against events. Events, not books, should be forbid.

- Melville, Herman
