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
Books are a languid pleasure. Montaigne
Books are a part of man's prerogative In formal ink, they thought and voices hold, That we to them our solitude may give, And make time present travel that of old, Our life fame pieceth longer at the end, And books it farther backward doth extend. Sir Thomas Overbury
Books are embalmed minds. Bovee
Books are faithful repositories, which may be awhile neglected or forgotten, but when they are opened again, will again impart their instruction. Memory, once interrupted, is not to be recalled; written learning is a fixed luminary, which, after the cloud that had hidden it has passed away, is again bright in its proper station. Tradition is but a meteor, which, if it once falls, cannot be rekindled. Johnson
Books are hindrances to persisting stupidity.
Books are men of higher stature, and the only men that speak aloud for future times to hear. Elizabeth B. Browning
Books are necessary to correct the vices of the polite; but those vices are ever changing, and the antidote should be changed accordingly - should still be new. Goldsmith
Books are not absolutely dead things, but do contain a progeny of life in them to be as active as that soul was whose progeny they are; nay, they do preserve as in a vial the purest efficacy and extraction of that living intellect that bred them. Milton
Books are not seldom talismans and spells. Cowper
Books are pleasant, but if by being over-studious we impair our health and spoil our good humour, two of the best things we have, let us give it over. I, for my part, am one of those who think no fruit derived from them can recompense so great a loss. Montaigne.
Books are preserved parts of minds.
Books are sepulchres of thought. Longfellow
Books are the beehives of thought; laconics the honey taken from them. James Ellis
Books are the best of things, well used; abused, among the worst. What is the right use? What is the one end, which all means go to effect? They are for nothing but to inspire. I had better never see a book than to be warped by its attraction clean out of my own orbit, and made a satellite instead of a system. Emerson
Books are the ever-burning lamps of accumulated wisdom. [George William Curtis]
Books are the immortal sons deifying their sires. Plato
Books are the legacies that genius leaves to mankind, to be delivered down from generation to generation, as presents to the posterity of those that are yet unborn. Addison
Books are the negative pictures of thought, and the more sensitive the mind that receives their images, the more nicely the finest lines are reproduced. Holmes
Books are the true levellers. They give to all who faithfully use them the society, the spiritual presence, of the best and greatest of our race. Channing
Books are the true metempsychosis, - they are the symbol and presage of immortality. The dead men are scattered, and none shall find them. Behold they are here! they do but sleep. Beecher
Books are true friends that will never flatter nor dissemble: be you but true to yourself,? and you shall need no other comfort. Bacon
Books bear him up awhile, and make him try to swim with bladders of philosophy. Rochester
Books cannot always please, however good; Minds are not ever craving for their food. CRABBE: The Borough, Letter xxiv.
Books give not wisdom where was none before.
Books go side by side with me in my whole course. Michel De Montaigne
Books have always a secret influence on the understanding; we cannot at pleasure obliterate ideas: he that reads books of science, though without any desire fixed of improvement, will grow more knowing; he that entertains himself with moral or religious treatises, will imperceptibly advance in goodness; the ideas which are often offered to the mind, will at last find a lucky moment when it is disposed to receive them. Johnson
Books have many charming qualities to such as know how to choose. Michel De Montaigne
Books have not so much served me for instruction as exercise. Michel De Montaigne
Books have their fate.
Books I read over again, still smile upon me with fresh novelty. Michel De Montaigne
Books must follow sciences, and not sciences books. Bacon
Books of things that were never either studied or understood. Michel De Montaigne
Books provide knowledge, life furnishes understanding.
Books speak to the mind, friends to the heart, heaven to the soul, all else to the ears.
Books that are books are all that you want, and there are but half a dozen in any thousand. Thoreau
Books think for me, I can read anything which I call a book. Lamb
Books which are no books. Lamb
Books wind into the heart. Hazlitt
Books, - lighthouses erected in the great sea of time. Whipple
Books, as Dryden has aptly termed them, are spectacles to read nature. Æschylus and Aristotle, Shakespeare and Bacon, are priests who preach and expound the mysteries of man and the universe. They teach us to understand and feel what we see, to decipher and syllable the hieroglyphics of the senses. Hare
Books, like friends, should be few, and well c Thomas Fuller
