Quotation Bullet

A book is the only immortality.
~ Rufus Choate - [Books and Reading]

Quotation Bullet

A good book is the very essence of a good man. His virtues survive in it, while the foibles and faults of his actual life are forgotten. All the goodly company of the excellent and great sit around my table, or look down on me from yonder shelves, waiting patiently to answer my questions and enrich me with their wisdom. A precious book is a foretaste of immortality.
~ Theodore L. Cuyler - [Books and Reading]

Quotation Bullet

A good novel tells us the truth about it's hero; but a bad novel tells us the truth about its author.

~ Charles Horton Cooley - [Books and Reading]

Quotation Bullet

Books, like friends, should be few and well chosen. Like friends, too, we should return to them again and again for, like true friends, they will never fail us -- never cease to instruct -- never cloy.
~ Charles Caleb Colton - [Books and Reading]

Quotation Bullet

Buy good books, and read them; the best books are the commonest, and the last editions are always the best, if the editors are not blockheads.
~ Lord Chesterfield - [Books and Reading]

Quotation Bullet

Happy is he who has laid up in his youth, and held fast in all fortune, a genuine and passionate love for reading.
~ Rufus Choate - [Books and Reading]
