Books quotes
Books
Writing books is the closest men ever come to childbearing.

- Mailer, Norman
The biggest critics of my books are people who never read them.

- Collins, Jackie
Five daily newspapers arrive in my California driveway. The New York times and the Wall Street Journal are supplemented by three local papers. As for magazines, I read, or at least skim, Business Week, Forbes, The Economist, INC; Industry Week, Fortune. Other subscriptions include Sales and Marketing Management, Modern Health Care, Progressive Grocer, High Tech Business, and Slaon Management Review from MIT. I religiously read Business Tokyo, Asia Week, and Far Eastern Economic Review. I glance at Newsweek and Time ... but I devour the New Republic, Policy Review, Foreign Affairs, The Washington Monthly, and Public Interest. How about books? A dozen or more each month.

- Peters, Thomas J.
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
He felt about books as doctors feel about medicines, or managers about plays - cynical, but hopeful.

- Dame Rose Macaulay
The failure to read good books both enfeebles the vision and strengthens our most fatal tendency --the belief that the here and now is all there is.

- Bloom, Allan
An apology for the devil: it must be remembered that we have heard only one side of the case; God has written all the books.

- Samuel Butler
You will be the same person in five as you are today except for the people you meet and the books you read.

- Jones, Charles ''Tremendous''
Next, in importance to books are their titles.

- Davies, Paul
There are two kinds of books. Those that no one reads and those that no one ought to read.

- Mencken, H. L.
They castrate the books of other men in order that with the fat of their works they may lard their own lean volumes.

- Jovius
In the dark colony of night, when I consider man's magnificent capacity for malice, madness, folly, envy, rage, and destructiveness, and I wonder whether we shall not end up as breakfast for newts and polyps, I seem to hear the muffled cries of all the words in all the books with covers closed.

- Rosten, Leo
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
Books are faithful repositories, which May be a while neglected or forgotten; but when they are opened again, will again impart their instruction: memory, once interrupted, is not to be recalled. Written learning is a fixed luminary, which, after the cloud that had hidden it has passed away, is again bright in its proper station. Tradition is but a meteor, which, if once it falls, cannot be rekindled.

- Samuel Johnson
When I get a little money, I buy books; and if there is any left I buy food and clothes.

- Desiderius Erasmus
Fahrenheit 451 is one of those books that is about how amazing books are and how amazing the people who write books are. Writers love writing books like this, and for some reason, we let them get away with it.

- Josh Lieb
Books are the bees which carry the quickening pollen from one to another mind.

- Lowell, James Russell
You've really got to start hitting the books because it's no joke out here.

- Lee, Spike
Thou mayest as well expect to grow stronger by always eating as wiser by always reading. Too much overcharges Nature, and turns more into disease than nourishment. 'Tis thought and digestion which makes books serviceable, and give health and vigor to the mind.

- Fuller, R. Buckminster
Americans will listen, but they do not care to read. War and Peace must wait for the leisure of retirement, which never really comes: meanwhile it helps to furnish the living room. Blockbusting fiction is bought as furniture. Unread, it maintains its value. Read, it looks like money wasted. Cunningly, Americans know that books contain a person, and they want the person, not the book.

- Burgess, Anthony
