Books are the carriers of civilization. Without books, history is silent, literature dumb, science crippled, thought and speculation at a standstill. They are engines of change, windows on the world, lighthouses erected in the sea of time.
Barbara W. Tuchman quotes
In the book of life, the answers aren't in the back.
Charlie Brown (by Charles Schulz) quotes
Books themselves need no defense. Their spokesmen come and go, their readers live and die, they remain constant.
Lawrence Clark Powell quotes
Beware the man of one book.
St. Thomas Aquinas quotes
We are motivated by a keen desire for praise, and the better a man is the more he is inspired by glory. The very philosophers themselves, even in those books which they write in contempt of glory, inscribe their names.
Marcus Tullius Cicero quotes
Books are the treasured wealth of the world and the fit inheritance of generations and nations.
Henry David Thoreau quotes
The instruction we find in books is like fire. We fetch it from our neighbours, kindle it at home, communicate it to others, and it becomes the property of all.
Learning hath gained most by those books by which the printers have lost.
Thomas Fuller quotes
The multitude of books is a great evil. There is no limit to this fever for writing.
Martin Luther King quotes
Let us welcome controversial books and controversial authors.
John Fitzgerald Kennedy quotes
