Never lend books, for no one ever returns them; the only books I have in my library are books that other folks have left me.
View quotes by Anatole France

If some books are deemed most baneful and their sale forbid, how, then, with deadlier facts, not dreams of doting men? Those whom books will hurt will not be proof against events. Events, not books, should be forbid.
View quotes by Herman Melville

Censorship ends in logical completeness when nobody is allowed to read any books except the books that nobody reads.
View quotes by George Bernard Shaw

A house without books is like a room without windows. No man has a right to bring up his children without surrounding them with books, if he has the means to buy them.
View quotes by Horace Mann

Buying books would be a good thing if one could also buy the time to read them in: but as a rule the purchase of books is mistaken for the appropriation of their contents.
View quotes by Arthur Schopenhauer

The booger jokes. And my editor always takes out four letter words when I put then in the children's books. And the sex parts [on the difference between kids and adults books]
View quotes by Meg Cabot

Books are the carriers of civilization. Without books, history is silent, literature dumb, science crippled, thought and speculation at a standstill.
View quotes by Barbara Tuchman

For books are more than books, they are the life, the very heart and core of ages past, the reason why men worked and died, the essence and quintessence of their lives.
View quotes by Amy Lowell

For books are more than books, they are the life, the very heart and core of ages past, the reason why men lived and worked and died, the essence and quintessence of their lives.
View quotes by Gene Fowler

The big selling books by celebrities are not so much books as products.
View quotes by John Berendt

I've written books on advertising... cheque books.
View quotes by Alan Sugar

Books, not which afford us a cowering enjoyment, but in which each thought is of unusual daring; such as an idle man cannot read, and a timid one would not be entertained by, which even make us dangerous to existing institution - such call I good books.
View quotes by Helen Rowland

Books that have become classics - books that have had their day and now get more praise than perusal - always remind me of retired colonels and majors and captains who, having reached the age limit, find themselves retired on half pay.
View quotes by Thomas Bailey Aldrich

Without books the development of civilization would have been impossible. They are the engines of change, windows on the world, 'Lighthouses' as the poet said 'erected in the sea of time.' They are companions, teachers, magicians, bankers of the treasures of the mind. Books are humanity in print.
View quotes by Arthur Schopenhauer

I went off and read the books after the audition and I read all four books in one sitting - you know - didn't wash, didn't eat, drove around with them on the steering wheel like a lunatic.
View quotes by Jason Isaacs

There was a time when the world acted upon books. Now books act upon the world
View quotes by Joseph Joubert

Some books leave us free and some books make us free.
View quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson

Books say: she did this because. Life says: she did this. Books are where things are explained to you, life where things aren't.
View quotes by Julian Barnes

The best books... are those that tell you what you know already.
View quotes by George Orwell

Read much, but not many books.
View quotes by Gustav Flaubert
