    Quotations about Books

    • When I read a book I seem to read it with my eyes only, but now and then I come across a passage, perhaps only a phrase, which has a meaning for me, and it becomes part of me.
      'Of Human Bondage', 1915, by William Somerset Maugham
    • When I am attacked by gloomy thoughts, nothing helps me so much as running to my books. They quickly absorb me and banish the clouds from my mind.
    • There is no mistaking a real book when one meets it. It is like falling in love.
    • Just the knowledge that a good book is awaiting one at the end of a long day makes that day happier.
      Hands Full of Living, 1931, by Kathleen Norris
    • Reading this book is like waiting for the first shoe to drop.
    • Always read stuff that will make you look good if you die in the middle of it.
    • This is not a novel to be tossed aside lightly. It should be thrown with great force.
    • Wear the old coat and buy the new book.
    • Properly, we should read for power. Man reading should be man intensely alive. The book should be a ball of light in one's hand.
    • There's a certain kind of conversation you have from time to time at parties in New York about a new book. The word "banal" sometimes rears its by-now banal head; you say "underedited," I say "derivative." The conversation goes around and around various literary criticisms, and by the time it moves on one thing is clear: No one read the book; we just read the reviews.
