Conversations With A Book.


The reading of all good books is indeed like a conversation with the noblest men of past centuries who were the authors of them, nay a carefully studied conversation, in which they reveal to us none but the best of their thoughts. – Rene Descartes

Any book that helps a child to form a habit of reading, to make reading one of his deep and continuing needs, is good for him. – Richard McKenna

There are worse crimes than burning books. One of them is not reading them. – Joseph Brodsky

Except a living man there is nothing more wonderful than a book! A message to us from the dead, – from human souls whom we never saw, who lived perhaps thousands of miles away; and yet these, on those little sheets of paper, speak to us, teach us, comfort us, open their hearts to us as brothers. – Charles Kingsley

All books are either dreams or swords. – Amy Lowell

She could give herself up to the written word as naturally as a good dancer to music or a fine swimmer to water. The only difficulty was that after finishing the last sentence she was left with a feeling at once hollow and uncomfortably full. Exactly like indigestion. – Jean Rhys
