    Quotations about Books

      Pride and Prejudice, 1811, by Jane Austen
    • Read not to contradict and confute, nor to find talk and discourse, but to weigh and consider.
    • Some books are to be tasted, others to be swallowed, and some few to be chewed and digested: that is, some books are to be read only in parts, others to be read, but not curiously, and some few to be read wholly, and with diligence and attention.
    • Where is human nature so weak as in the bookstore?
    • The covers of this book are too far apart.
