"Books are delightful society. If you go into a room and find it full of books - even without taking them from the shelves they seem to speak to you, to bid you welcome. They seem to tell you that they have got something inside their covers that will be good for you, and that they are willing and desirous to impart to you. Value them much."
-William Gladstone

"The love of books is a love which requires neither justification, apology, nor defence. It is a good thing in itself; a possession to be thankful for, to rejoice over, to be proud of, and to sing praises for. With this love in his heart no man is ever poor, ever without friends, or the means of making his life lovely, beautiful, and happy."
-John Alfred Langford

"Books are the carriers of civilization. Without books, history is silent, literature dumb, science crippled, thought and speculation at a standstill. They are engines of change, windows on the world, lighthouses - as a poet once said - erected in the sea of time."
-Barbara Tuchman

"The books are advancing silently, innocently through my house. There is no way I can stop them."
-Carlos Maria Dominguez, "The House of Paper"
