I cannot live without books.
- Thomas Jefferson
'Tis the good reader that makes the good book; in every book he
finds passages which seem to be confidences or sides hidden from all
else and unmistakably meant for his ear; the profit of books is
according to the sensibility of the reader; the profound thought or
passion sleeps as in a mine, until it is discovered by an equal mind
- Ralph Waldo Emerson
Read the best books first, or you may not have a chance to read them
- Henry David Thoreau
No tears in the writer, no tears in the reader.
- Robert Frost
To learn to read is to light a fire; every syllable that is spelled
out is a spark.
- Victor Hugo
There is no Frigate like a book to take us lands away nor any
coursers like a page of prancing Poetry.
- Emily Dickinson
