Are we not like two volumes of one book?
A house without books is like a room without windows.
Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counselors, and the most patient of teachers.
And like I said, I appreciate my older brothers because they would not allow me to win. They made me learn to play with them, which I think is the most important thing that I learned.
Books are a uniquely portable magic.
Only the very weak-minded refuse to be influenced by literature and poetry.
Books are like mirrors: if a fool looks in, you cannot expect a genius to look out.
I don't believe in the kind of magic in my books. But I do believe something very magical can happen when you read a good book.
But for my own part, if a book is well written, I always find it too short.
My Best Friend is a person who will give me a book I have not read.
There are books of which the backs and covers are by far the best parts.
The world was hers for the reading.
It is a good rule after reading a new book, never to allow yourself another new one till you have read an old one in between.
Books serve to show a man that those original thoughts of his aren't very new after all.
The worst thing about new books is that they keep us from reading the old ones.
