A room without books is like a body without a soul.
G. K. Chesterton (1874 - 1936)
Never judge a book by its movie.
J. W. Eagan
Oh for a book and a shady nook...
John Wilson (1785 - 1854)
Just the knowledge that a good book is awaiting one at the end of a long day makes that day happier.
Kathleen Norias, Hands Full of Living, 1931
Do give books - religious or otherwise - for Christmas. They're never fattening, seldom sinful, and permanently personal.
When I step into this library, I cannot understand why I ever step out of it.
Marie de Sevigne, O Magazine, December 2003
You know you've read a good book when you turn the last page and feel a little as if you have lost a friend.
The man who does not read good books has no advantage over the man who cannot read them.
God be thanked for books! they are the voices of the distant and the dead, and make us heirs of the spiritual life of past ages.
