Oh so quotable…

Not done a quote-post for a while, and so to address that error here is a quote-post on a subject close to my heart, that of books… Those wonderful things made of paper that can hold whole universes within them or a microcosm of humanity laid bare… And the houses that keep them.

So let’s start off with an old favourite and Mr Gaimens thoughts on the matter at hand.

A book is a dream that you hold in your hand ~ Neil Gaimen

Someday you will be old enough to start reading fairy tales again ~ C.S.Lewis

Books are a uniquely portable magic ~ Stephen King

Books serve to show a man that those original thoughts of his aren't very new at all. (Abraham Lincoln) #quotes #quote #quotations #AbrahamLincoln

One glance at a book and you hear the voice of another person, perhaps someone dead for 1,000 years. To read is a voyage through time.  ~ Carl Sagan

A man who does not read good books has no advantage over the man who can’t read them ~ Mark Twain

All good books have one thing in common- they are truer than if they had really happened ~ Ernest Hemingway

A house that has a library in it has a soul ~ Plato


To build up a library is to create life. It’s never just a random collection of books ~ Carlos Marta Dominguez

I never understood people who don’t have bookshelves ~ George Plimpton

A good library will never be too neat, or too dusty, because somebody will always be in it, taking books off the shelves and staying up late reading them.  ~ Lemony Snicket

Never put off till tomorrow the book you can read today ~ Holbrook Jackson


And finally, a little self-nepotism on my part…

When I was young I wanted a house with a library in it, now I am older I want a library with a house in it ~ Mark Hayes
