“A room without books is like a body without a soul.” ― Cicero
“Good friends, good books, and a sleepy conscience: this is the ideal life.” ― Mark Twain “Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend.”― Groucho Marx “Fairy tales are more than true: not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.” ― Neil Gaiman “I have always imagined that Paradise will be a kind of library.” ― Jorge Luis Borges “I find television very educating. Every time somebody turns on the set, I go into the other room and read a book.” ― Groucho Marx "You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me.” ― C.S. Lewis “Some books should be tasted, some devoured, but only a few should be chewed and digested thoroughly.” ― Francis Bacon “When I have a little money, I buy books; and if I have any left, I buy food and clothes.” ― Desiderius Erasmus Roterodamus “Where is human nature so weak as in the bookstore?” ― Henry Ward Beecher “I cannot live without books.” ― Thomas Jefferson “There is no friend as loyal as a book.” ― Ernest Hemingway “There are two motives for reading a book; one, that you enjoy it; the other, that you can boast about it.” ― Bertrand Russell “There are worse crimes than burning books. One of them is not reading them.” ― Joseph Brodsky “The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.” ― Augustine of Hippo “Only the very weak-minded refuse to be influenced by literature and poetry.” ― Cassandra Clare “She is too fond of books, and it has turned her brain.”― Louisa May Alcott “Good books don't give up all their secrets at once.” ― Stephen King “Make it a rule never to give a child a book you would not read yourself.” ― George Bernard Shaw
