Books

James Rollins

Books are keys that open many doors.

Matthew Kelly

Reading is to the mind what exercise is to the body and prayer is to the soul. We become the books we read.

Ernest Hemingway

There is no friend as loyal as a book.

Rudyard Kipling

If history were taught in the form of stories, it would never be forgotten.

T.S. Eliot

The very existence of libraries affords the best evidence that we may yet have hope for the future of man.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

A man is known by the books he reads, by the company he keeps, by the praise he gives…

Elizabeth Goudge

The sources of our comfort are legion, and cannot be counted, but if we attempted the impossible and tried to make a list most of us would place books very high indeed, perhaps second only to faith, for reading is not only a pleasure in itself, with its concomitants of stillness, quietness and forgetfulness of self, but in what we read many of our other comforts are present with us like a reflection in a mirror.

Matthew Kelly

We become the books we read.

Andrew Clements

I don’t know a single writer who wasn’t a reader first.

Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis

There are many little ways to enlarge your child’s world. Love of books is the best of all.

Will Rogers

A man only learns in two ways: one by reading, and the other by association with smarter people.

G.K. Chesterton

Fairy tales do not give the child his first idea of bogey. What fairy tales give the child is his first clear idea of the possible defeat of bogey. The baby has known the dragon intimately ever since he had an imagination. What the fairy tale provides for him is a St. George to kill the dragon.

Booker T. Washington

In my contact with people I find that, as a rule, it is only the little, narrow people who live for themselves, who never read good books, who do not travel, who never open up their souls in a way to permit them to come into contact with other souls — with the great outside world.

Oscar Wilde

It is what you read when you don’t have to that determines what you will be when you can’t help it.

Jane Austen

I declare after all there is no enjoyment like reading!

C.S. Lewis

A children’s story that can only be enjoyed by children is not a good children’s story in the slightest.

Francis Bacon

Some books should be tasted, some devoured, but only a few should be chewed and digested thoroughly.

William Friedman

The greatest and most powerful weapon ever forged…is the weapon of literacy…and the most important invention, the one that made the weapon of literacy practical was the invention of the alphabet.
