I admit that books were voted in and out, and that the Bible was finally formed in accordance with a vote
Robert Green Ingersoll
I am like a book, with pages that have stuck together for want of use: my mind needs unpacking and the truths stored within must be turned over from time to time, to be ready when occasion demands
Seneca
I am mortified to be told that, in the United States of America, the sale of a book can become a subject of inquiry, and of criminal inquiry too.
Thomas Jefferson
I can't bear art that you can walk round and admire. A book should be either a bandit or a rebel or a man in the crowd.
D.H. Lawrence
I know many books which have bored their readers, but I know of none which has done real evil
Voltaire
I perceived that to express those impressions, to write that essential book, which is the only true one, a great writer does not, in the current meaning of the word, invent it, but, since it exists already in each one of us, interprets it. The duty and the task of a writer are those of an interpreter.
Marcel Proust
I would define a book as a work of magic whence escape, all kinds of images to trouble the souls and change the hearts of men
Anatole France
If a man writes a book, let him set down only what he knows. I have guesses enough of my own.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
If I read a book that impresses me, I have to take myself firmly in hand before I mix with other people; otherwise they would think my mind rather queer.
Anne Frank
If I were to name the three most precious resources of life, I should say books, friends, and nature; and the greatest of these, at least the most constant and always at hand, is nature.
John Burroughs
If in other lands the press and books and literature of all kinds are censored, we must redouble our efforts here to keep them free
Franklin D. Roosevelt
If the book is good, is about something that you know, and is truly written, and reading it over you see that this is so, you can let the boys yip and the noise will have that pleasant sound coyotes make on a very cold night when they are out in the snow and you are in your own cabin that you have built or paid for with your work.
Ernest Hemingway
John Fitzgerald Kennedy
If you read a lot of books you are considered well read. But if you watch a lot of TV, you're not considered well viewed.
Lily Tomlin
In the dime stores and bus stations, People talk of situations, read books, repeat quotations, Draw conclusions on the wall
Bob Dylan
It is all very well to be able to write books, but can you waggle your ears?
James Matthew Barrie
It is my ambition to say in ten sentences what other men say in whole books what other men do not say in whole books
Friedrich Nietzsche
It is my ambition to say in ten sentences what others say in a whole book.
Friedrich Nietzsche
It is not all books that are as dull as their readers.
Henry David Thoreau
Memory is the friend of wit, but the treacherous ally of invention; there are many books that owe their success to two things; good memory of those who write them, and the bad memory of those who read them
Charles Caleb Colton
