A house without books is like a room without windows. No man has a right to bring up his children without surrounding them with books, if he has the means to buy them. (Quote by - Horace Mann)

I've been a supporting player for so long, and I know that my point of view is just as valuable as anyone else's, and it's about time for it to be heard. (Quote by - Kevin Hunter)

Russian literature has a sinister streak, and I think that influence is very evident on this record. I was indulging myself with these books while I was coming up with ideas. Those books are so dark and real and not glam at all. (Quote by - Diego Garcia)

Just the omission of Jane Austen's books alone would make a fairly good library out of a library that hadn't a book in it. (Quote by - Mark Twain)

The good of a book lies in its being read. A book is made up of signs that speak of other signs, which in their turn speak of things. Without an eye to read them, a book contains signs that produce no concepts; therefore it is dumb. (Quote by - Umberto Eco)

In an atmosphere of liberty, one is as free to not open a book as to open it. Although simple in concept, that is not necessarily an easy condition to maintain. All of us can think of a book that we hope none of our children or any other children have taken off the shelf, .. But if I have the right to remove that book from the shelf -- that work I abhor -- then you also have exactly the same right and so does everyone else. And then we have no books left on the shelf for any of us. (Quote by - Katherine Paterson)

If I have not read a book before, it is, for all intents and purposes, new to me whether it was printed yesterday or three hundred years ago. (Quote by - William Hazlitt)

Like Dr. King I have a dream of my own, too, that the powerful message of this little book would be engraved on every human heart and will never be forgotten again. That you who read this book will feel as I do that these 120 pages .. should be required reading for all humanity. (Quote by - Oprah Winfrey)

I spent months digging through our archives looking for unique photos of Glacier National Park. With the help of former editor Brian Kennedy and Patsi Morton (Ruder's daughter) I was able to come up with a truly unique book. Some of these gems haven't seen print in 60 years. Some were never published at all. This book was a lot of fun to put together. About half of the photos in the book are from the Ruder era, which only makes sense, since Ruder, the founder of the Hungry Horse News owned the newspaper for more than half of its 60 years. (Quote by - Chris Peterson)

A great book-group book is more than just a great book. For (this list), we sought out 25 titles that encourage engagement, discussion and debate - though we certainly hope there's no significant bloodshed. (Quote by - Jerome Kramer)

The Bible remained for me a book of books, still divine - but divine in the sense that all great books are divine which teach men how to live righteously. (Quote by - Joseph Joubert)

Men do not understand books until they have a certain amount of life, or at any rate no man understands a deep book, until he has seen and lived at least part of its contents. (Quote by - Ezra Pound)

The sun will be in your book, if you ever think of sun. (Quote by - John Kiladius)

Old books that have ceased to be of service should no more be abandoned than should old friends who have ceased to give pleasure. (Quote by - Sir Peregrine Worsthorne)

When you buy a book, you have it forever. With these electronic books, you often are prevented from doing those things that you can do with regular books. What happens when my device breaks?.. Books aren't just words on a page. They are things you can trade, share and store for later. (Quote by - Gregory Newby)

That place that does contain My books, the best companions, is to me A glorious court, where hourly I converse With the old sages and philosophers; And sometimes, for variety, I confer With kings and emperors, and weigh their counsels; Calling their victories, if unjustly got, Unto a strict account, and, in my fancy, Deface their ill-placed statues. (Quote by - Francis Beaumont and John Fletcher)

Her book said that there's no reason why women are biologically disposed to be mothers all of their lives. Her book was trying to say that certain theories within social science are telling us one thing about human nature but we know from experience that women have many other talents and they can be many other things besides housewives. Her book was trying to defunct the experts of the time. (Quote by - Nancy Lutkehaus)

There are books on HTML, JavaScript, Java, ActiveX, and all sorts of other geeky subjects. But not only don't you need to understand these things in order to set up a Web site; you can read a dozen such books, and you still won't know everything you need to do. (Quote by - Peter Kent)

I was a great reader of fairy tales. I tried to read the entire fairy tale section of the library: Andrew Lang's Blue Fairy Book, Red Fairy Book, and so on, probably down to the Puce or Chartreuse fairy tales. (Quote by - Beverly Cleary)

I never wanted to do Harry Potter. I thought it should have stayed as a book. There are some books that should be made into movies and some that shouldn't. Harry Potter is 70% imagination. When the movie comes out, it's going to be such a stereotype for kids. When they think of Harry Potter, they're going to think of what is portrayed on screen. (Quote by - Haley Joel Osment)
