Books
I have no doubt that faith is only pure when it does not negate the faith of another. I have no doubt that evil can be fought and that indifference is no option. I have no doubt that fanaticism is dangerous. And of all the books in the world on life, I have no doubt that the life of one person weighs more than them all.

- Elie Wiesel
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
Why are not more gems from our great authors scattered over the country? Great books are not in everybody's reach; and though it is better to know them thoroughly than to know them only here and there, yet it is a good work to give a little to those who have not the time nor means to get more.

- Coleridge, Samuel Taylor
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.
Books are hindrances to persisting stupidity.

- Spanish Proverb
In the case of good books, the point is not how many of them you can get through, but rather how many can get through to you.

- Adler, Mortimer J.
A morning-glory at my window satisfies me more than the metaphysics of books.

- Walt Whitman
The Bible remained for me a book of books, still divine -- but divine in the sense that all great books are divine which teach men how to live righteously.

- Keith, Sir Arthur
Woe be to him that reads but one book.

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

- Lamb, Charles
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
I heard his library burned down and both books were destroyed -- and one of them hadn't even been colored in yet.

- Dawkins, John
A room without books is like a body without a soul.

- Cicero
So have I loitered my life away, reading books, looking at pictures, going to plays, hearing, thinking, writing on what pleased me best. I have wanted only one thing to make me happy, but wanting that have wanted everything.

- William Hazlitt
Books are made not like children but like pyramids. . . and they’re just as useless! and they stay in the desert! . . . Jackals piss at their foot and the bourgeois climb up on them.

- Gustave Flaubert
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.

- Forster, Edward M.
Books, like friends, should be few and well chosen. Like friends, too, we should return to them again and again for, like true friends, they will never fail us -- never cease to instruct -- never cloy.

- Colton, Charles Caleb
Books are good enough in their own way, but they are a mightily bloodless substitute for life.

- Robert Louis Stevenson
I believe that it is my job not only to write books but to have them published. A book is like a child. You have to defend the life of a child.

- Konrad, George
I do not hesitate to read all good books in translations. What is really best in any book is translatable -- any real insight or broad human sentiment.

- Emerson, Ralph Waldo
