    Quotations about Books

    • A room without books is like a body without a soul.
      (Attributed), by Cicero
    • Many books require no thought from those who read them, and for a very simple reason; they made no such demand upon those who wrote them.
      Lacon, 1820, by Charles Caleb Colton
    • A truly great book should be read in youth, again in maturity and once more in old age, as a fine building should be seen by morning light, at noon and by moonlight.
    • To be a book-collector is to combine the worst characteristics of a dope fiend with those of a miser.
      "The Table Talk of Samuel Marchbanks", by Robertson Davies
    • I've never known any trouble that an hour's reading didn't assuage.
    • Never judge a book by its movie.
    • Reading, after a certain age, diverts the mind too much from its creative pursuits. Any man who reads too much and uses his own brain too little falls into lazy habits of thinking.
    • Don't join the book burners. Don't think you're going to conceal faults by concealing evidence that they ever existed. Don't be afraid to go in your library and read every book...
    • Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counsellors, and the most patient of teachers.
      The Happy Life, 1896, by Charles W. Eliot
    • In the highest civilization, the book is still the highest delight. He who has once known its satisfactions is provided with a resource against calamity.
