"One to whom books are as strangers has not yet learned to live. He is a solitary, though he dwell amid a vast population. On the other hand, he to whom books are as friends possesses a Key to the Garden of Delights, where the purest pleasures are open for his entertainment, and where he has for his companions the master minds of all the ages." Charles Noel Douglas
"A blessed companion is a book, a book that, fitly chosen, is a lifelong friend, ... a book that, at a touch, pours its heart into our own." Douglas Jerrold
"Books are islands in the ocean of time. They are also oases in the deserts of time." Lawrence Clark Powell
"The book of the moment often has immense vogue, while the book of the age, which comes in its company from the press, lies unnoticed; but the great book has its revenge.
