It does not matter how many books you have, but how good the books are which you have. (Quote by - Seneca)

Books, books, books had found the secret of a garret-room piled high with cases in my father's name; Piled high, packed large, /where, creeping in and out among the giant fossils of my past, like some small nimble mouse between the ribs of a mastodon, I nibbled here and there at this or that box, pulling through the gap, in heats of terror, haste, victorious joy, the first book first. And how I felt it beat under my pillow, in the morning's dark. An hour before the sun would let me read! My books!. (Quote by - Elizabeth Barrett Browning)

And We have not made the wardens of the fire others than angels, and We have not made their number but as a trial for those who disbelieve, that those who have been given the book may be certain and those who believe may increase in faith, and those who have been given the book and the believers may not doubt, and that those in whose hearts is a disease and the unbelievers may say: What does Allah mean by this parable? Thus does Allah make err whom He pleases, and He guides whom He pleases, and none knows the hosts of your Lord but He Himself; and this is naught but a reminder to the mortals. (Quote by - quran)

Whenever you read a good book, it's like the author is right there, in the room talking to you, which is why I don't like to read good books. (Quote by - Jack Handy)

My education was the liberty I had to read indiscriminately and all the time, with my eyes hanging out. (Quote by - Dylan Thomas)

When you open a book you go places, where your mind runs wild and your dream can soar. (Quote by - Cory Matthew Falls)

The man who does not read good books has no advantage over the man who can't read them. (Quote by - Mark Twain)

Life is like a good book and the only people that know the ending aren't going to spoil it. (Quote by - Jeremy L. Hawkins)

Experience of life (not of books) is the only capital usable in such a book as you have attempted; one can make no judicious use of this capital while it is new. (Quote by - Mark Twain)

Writing books isn't a drastic departure from writing for the stage. I've always written in the long format, five, eight, 10-minute pieces rather than one-liners, so since writing books, the process hasn't changed much. A piece in my live routine can end up as part of one of my HBO specials, and it can also end up in one of the books. (Quote by - George Carlin)

The Compleat Angler is acknowledged to be one of the world's books. Only the trouble is that the world doesn't read its books, it borrows a detective story instead. (Quote by - Stephen Leacock)

It's really about readers getting in touch with books. Their interest may start with new technology, but we hope that, in the end, they go to a bookstore, buy a hardback or a paperback, and curl up with a book. (Quote by - Jeff Gomez)

I think the writing for this book is extraordinary. And that's why we call it 'Above and Beyond,' because it really is above and beyond what we expected. Writers like (Kurt) Vonnegut and Tim O'Brien waited years after their service to write their books. There's an immediacy and rawness to this book that makes it so compelling. (Quote by - Andrew Carroll)

I think I made a lot of mistakes in writing the book and promoting the book. (Quote by - James Frey)

Every man is a volume if you know how to read him. (Quote by - William Ellery Channing)

My philosophy in life grows everyday. Really a new day is a new page in my book of life, and well though days fly so quick, the pages in life stays forever and you can always turn back to the important elements of life and learn from your mistakes. (Quote by - Amir Riveroll)

My best friends are books, I can easily read them and take them wherever I go. (Quote by - Debra Roberts)

What guided Einstein was that, in his mid-twenties, he found the unknown intriguing. He felt compelled to comprehend what might have been intended for our universe by The Old One as he referred to his notion of God. We are in the position, .. of a little child entering a huge library, whose walls are covered to the ceiling with books in many different languages. The child knows that someone must have written those books. It does not know who or how. It does not understand the languages in which they are written. The child notes a definite plan in the arrangement of the books, a mysterious order, which it does not comprehend but only dimly suspects. (Quote by - Albert Einstein)

All books can be indecent books, though recent books are bolder. For filth, I'm glad to say, is in the mind of the beholder. When correctly viewed, everything is lewd. I could tell you things about Peter Pan, And the Wizard of OZ, there's a dirty old man!. (Quote by - )

Clearly, she's a very smart person. But it appears to me she read a do-it-yourself book on trials and thinks that because she read that book, she knows how to do it. It's like reading a do-it-yourself book on emergency surgery. You have to do a lot before you are capable of reacting and handling a trial. They're so chaotic, you never know what's going to happen. (Quote by - Steve Clark)
