Book Quotes of the Week

"Let's be reasonable and add an eight day to the week that is devoted exclusively to reading." Lean Dunham

It is not customary to acknowledge the trees themselves, though their commitment is total." Forsyth and Rada, Machine Learning

"A book must be the axe for the frozen sea within us." Franz Kafka

"I must say I find television very educational. The minute somebody turns it on, I go into the library and read a good book." Groucho Marx

"Books don't change people; paragraphs do, sometimes even sentences." John Piper
