A book lover never goes to sleep alone.
A good book is a good friend.
A good book is like an old friend.
Condense soups, not books !!
Curl up with a good book….
(I saw this on a sign depicting a cat sleeping on a stack of books…)
Give me a bed and a book and I am happy !
(Logan Pearsall Smith)
I find television very educating.
Every time somebody turns on the set,
I go into the other room and read a book.
~~~If you can read this, thank a teacher;
since it’s English, thank a soldier!
In the highest civilization….the book is still the highest delight!
(Ralph Waldo Emerson –1876)
LIBRARIANS: Expert guide to the world of knowledge.
A library is the heart of knowledge. Librarians and books naturally go together.
Librarians are novel people.
Librarians are shelf-employed !
Life is the reflection of literature…
(Wallace Stevens –1957)
Never judge a book by its cover.
Outside of a dog,
a book is man’s best friend.
Inside of a dog it’s too dark to read.
Reading is to the mind….what exercise is to the body.
Reading teachers do it between the covers.
Take time to read…..it is the fountain of wisdom.
The man who does not read
has no advantage over
the man who cannot read.
The true University of these days
is a collection of books.
(Thomas Carlyle 1795-1881)
