I think of life as a good book. The further you get into it, the more it begins to make sense.
Great books help you understand, and they help you feel understood.
A book is a version of the world. If you do not like it, ignore it or offer your own version in return.
A book is the only place in which you can examine a fragile thought without breaking it.
Edward P. Morgan
Anyone who says they have only one life to live must not know how to read a book.
Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend. Inside of a dog it's too dark to read.
A good book has no ending.
If there is a book that you want to read, but it hasn’t been written yet, you must be the one to write it.
A book is a device to ignite the imagination.
Once you learn to read, you will be forever free.
Some books leave us free and some books make us free.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
You know you’ve read a good book when you turn the last page and feel a little as if you have lost a friend.
What you don’t know would make a great book.
A great book should leave you with many experiences, and slightly exhausted at the end. You live several lives while reading.
If one cannot enjoy reading a book over and over again, there is no use in reading it at all.
The only important thing in a book is the meaning that it has for you.
W. Somerset Maugham
Books serve to show a man that those original thoughts of his aren’t very new after all.
If you only read the books that everyone else is reading, you can only think what everyone else is thinking.
