Books open your mind, broaden your mind, and strengthen you as nothing else can


Books quotes

A good book on your shelf is a friend

that turns its back on you and remains a friend.

Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are

the most accessible and wisest of counselors, and the most patient of

teachers

“Tell me what you read and I’ll tell you who you are” is true enough,

Books support us in our solitude and keep us from being

aburden to ourselves.

The good ended happily, and the bad unhappily.

That is what Fiction means.

I love everything that’s old,- old friends, old times,

old manners, old books, old wine.

Oliver Goldsmith

Books are a guide in youth, and an entertainment for age. They support

us under solitude, and keep us from becoming a burden to ourselves.

They help us to forget the crossness of men and things, compose our

cares and our passions, and lay our disappointments asleep.

When we are weary of the living, we may repair to the dead,

who have nothing of peevishness, pride or design in their conversation

.—Jeremy Collier.
