The things I want to know are in books; my best friend is the man who'll get me a book I ain't read.
‘Classic.'A book which people praise and don't read.
If one cannot enjoy reading a book over and over again, there is no use in reading it at all.
Literature is my Utopia[乌托邦]. Here I am not disenfranchised[被剥夺公民权的]. No barrier of the senses shuts me out from the sweet, gracious discourses[谈话] of my book friends. They talk to me without embarrassment or awkwardness.
There is no friend as loyal as a book.
The book you don't read won't help.
A good book on your shelf is a friend that turns its back on you and remains a friend.
The worth of a book is to be measured by what you can carry away from it.
There is a great deal of difference between an eager man who wants to read a book and a tired man who wants a book to read.
If there's a book you really want to read but it hasn't been written yet, then you must write it.
A good book has no ending.—R.D. Cumming
You know you've read a good book when you turn the last page and feel a little as if you have lost a friend.—Paul Sweeney
