    Every man who knows how to read has it in his power to magnify himself, to multiply the ways in which he exists, to make his life full, significant, and interesting.

    -Aldous Huxley

    We should read to give our souls a chance to luxuriate.

    -Henry Miller

    I cannot think of a greater blessing than to die in one's own bed, without warning or discomfort, on the last page of the new book that we must wanted to read.

    -John Russell

    I walke manie times...into the pleasant fieldes of the Holye Scriptures, where I pluck up the goodlie greene herbes of sentences, eate them by reading, chewe them up musing, and laie them up at length in the seate of memorie...so I may lesse perceive the bitterness of the miserable life.

    -Queen Elizabeth I

    Consider what you have in the smallest chosen library; a company of the wisest and wittiest men that could be picked out of all civil countries in a thousand years...The thought which they did not uncover to their bosom friend is here written out in the transparent words to us, the strangers of another age.

    -Ralph Waldo Emerson

    A library is the delivery room for the birth of ideas, a place where history comes to life.

    -Norman Cousins

    Use words that soak up life.

    -Virginia Woolf
