When the mind is braced by labor and invention, the page of whatever book we read becomes luminous with manifold allusion. Every sentence is doubly significant, and the sense of our author is as broad as the world.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
When Toni Morrison said 'write the book you want to read,' she didn't mean everybody.
When I get a little money I buy books. And if there is any left over I buy food.
Walls are the notebooks of fools.
Teachers die, but books live on.
See to it that you have many books and many friends -- but be sure they are good ones.
No more teachers, no more books, no more teacher's dirty looks.
More is to be got from one teacher than from two books.
Make sure you have many books and many friends -- as long as they are good ones.
