"That is a good book which is opened with expectation and closed in profit."
Amos Bronson Alcott
"I suggest that the only books that influence us are those for which we are ready, and which have gone a little farther down our particular path than we have yet got ourselves."
E. M. Forster
"All good books are alike in that they are truer than if they had really happened and after you are finished reading one you will feel that all that happened to you and afterwards it all belongs to you; the good and the bad, the ecstasy, the remorse, and sorrow, the people and the places and how the weather was."
Ernest Hemingway
"The book to read is not the one which thinks for you, but the one which makes you think."
Harper Lee
"The oldest books are still only just out to those who have not read them."
Samuel Butler
"Outside a dog, a book is man's best friend. Inside a dog, it's too dark to read."
Groucho Marx
"When I look back, I am so impressed again with the life-giving power of literature. If I were a young person today, trying to gain a sense of myself in the world, I would do that again by reading, just as I did when I was young."
Maya Angelou
