Famous quotes on books

"The world of books is the most remarkable creation of man. Nothing else that he builds ever lasts. Monuments fall, nations perish, civilizations grow old and die out, and after an era new races build others. But in the world of books are volumes that have seen this happen again and again and yet live on, still young, still as fresh as the day they were written, still telling men's hearts of the heart of men centuries dead."
~ Clarence Shepard Day

"A good book is the best of friends."
~ English Proverb

"Books are the ever burning lamps of accumulated wisdom."
~ George William Curtis

"The reading of all good books is like conversation with the finest men of past centuries."
~ Descartes

"They are the books, the arts, the academes,That show, contain and nourish all the world."
~ William Shakespeare, Love's Labour's Lost
