Librarian quotes by Josh Hanagarne
#1. The mind that asks and experiments and evaluates will die one day, but will provide a richer life for its owner. The mind that does nothing but rest inside the brain doesn't sidestep the puddle. It's sitting in it. #Quote by Josh Hanagarne
Librarian quotes by Jeanine Cummins
#2. Lydia is dubious at first, but if you can't trust a librarian, who can you trust? #Quote by Jeanine Cummins
Librarian quotes by Libby Page
#3. When Kate was younger, stories were her friends when she found people challenging. She searched them out, hiding among them in the library and tucking herself into their pages. She folded herself into the shape of Hermione Granger or George from The Famous Five or Catherine Moreland from Northanger Abbey and tried to be them for a day. When she started secondary school her friends were the characters she met in the pages of her books. They sat with her in the library as she snuck mouthfuls of sandwich behind books so the librarian wouldn't see. (The librarian always saw, but pretended not to.) #Quote by Libby Page
Librarian quotes by Joseph Fink
#4. Diane sometimes hears that Troy is an actuary. Sometimes she hears Troy is a florist. Sometimes she hears Troy is a cop, a toll collector, a professor, a musician, a stand-up comedian. Once, she heard a terrible rumor he became a librarian but she could not imagine Troy becoming the darkest of evil beasts no matter what he had done to her. Is it even possible for a human to become a librarian? #Quote by Joseph Fink
Librarian quotes by Miriam Toews
#5. No, no, said the librarian, forgiven for being alive, for being in the world. For the arrogance and the futility of remaining alive, the ridiculousness of it, the stench of it, the unreasonableness of it. #Quote by Miriam Toews
Librarian quotes by Sarah Smith
#6. I shall tell you what I believe. I believe God is a librarian. I believe that literature is holy ... it is that best part of our souls that we break off and give each other, and God has a special dispensation for it, angels to guard its making and its preservation. #Quote by Sarah Smith
Librarian quotes by Rysa Walker
#7. You look very librarian." He's right. The blue dress falls just below the knee and is probably the frumpiest-looking thing I've ever worn, but at least it's loose enough that I can fight in it if I have to. #Quote by Rysa Walker
Librarian quotes by Clifford Currie Librarian Of The Ashmolean Library Oxford
#8. I found that I could not contemplate an adult life in which books were not dominant. I wanted to live and work with them ... I had to be able to take books from their places, run my finger over their backs, see how they opened, flick their corners straight. I wanted a perspective of bookshelves always in my eye. And books, books, books. This was not a rational way of determining on a career and was much tainted by mushiness. But it was the way in which my decision hardened, before I was fifteen years old, to become a librarian. #Quote by Clifford Currie Librarian Of The Ashmolean Library Oxford
Librarian quotes by Vladimir Nabokov
#9. Cynthia had been on friendly terms with an eccentric librarian called Porlock who in the last years of his dusty life had been engaged in examining old books for miraculous misprints such as the substitution of "1" for the second "h" in the word "hither." Contrary to Cynthia, he cared nothing for the thrill of obscure predictions; all he sought was the freak itself, the chance that mimics choice, the flaw that looks like a flower; and Cynthia, a much more perverse amateur of misshapen or illicitly connected words, puns, logogriphs, and so on, had helped the poor crank to pursue a quest that in the light of the example she cited struck me as statistically insane. ("The Vane Sisters") #Quote by Vladimir Nabokov
Librarian quotes by Kimberly Derting
#10. Has he called you at all?" Violet asked, even though she already knew the answer. Chelsea would have exploded with joy if he had.
"No," Chelsea answered glumly, and then she snapped her gum, earning herself another scowl from the librarian. She ignored the scolding look. "And I don't get it. I've given him my best material, including the I'm-easy-and-you-can-totally-have-me bedroom eyes. What's he waiting for?" Chelsea stopped talking and dropped her face into her open history book. "Look out, crazy librarian at nine o'clock."
By the time Mrs. Hertzog reached them, Chelsea was pretending to be interested in her assignment, filling in the dates on her paper as if it were the most fascinating homework in the world. Although Violet was almost certain that the War of 1812 hadn't occurred in 1776.
"Miss Morrison, do I need to remind you that you're supposed to be working? Your teacher sent you down here to study, not to socialize." She smiled sweetly at Violet. Chelsea's gaze narrowed as she glared, first at Violet and then at Mrs. Hertzog. But, wisely, she kept her mouth shut. "If you need help finding reference material," Mrs. Hertzog offered, glancing over the answers on Chelsea's paper, "I'd be happy to point you in the right direction…"
Chelsea swallowed, and Violet suspected she'd just swallowed her gum, since gum was a library no-no, before answering. "No, thanks. I think I've got it covered." She smiled, trying for sweet but getting closer to sour. "Unl #Quote by Kimberly Derting
Librarian quotes by Tina Fey
#11. Finally the world would see my full range of comedy characters - from grouchy librarian to Russian librarian. #Quote by Tina Fey
Librarian quotes by Jeanette Murray
#12. He (Brett) handed her the drink over her shoulder. She looked up and smiled, saying thanks. The table was covered with notepads and pens. And when he sat down across from her, she reached in her bag and brought out a pair of glasses.
His body froze, hand clutched around his drink. Naughty librarian daydream come to life.
Oh, good Christ. #Quote by Jeanette Murray
Librarian quotes by Gene Luen Yang
#13. In the '40s and '50s, a lot of teachers and librarians saw the graphic novel as the enemy of reading. #Quote by Gene Luen Yang
Librarian quotes by Peter Morville
#14. Note that the #1 Top Reviewer at Amazon (4550 book reviews) is Harriet Klausner, formerly an acquisitions librarian in Pennsylvania. This just goes to show that librarians were destined to rule the Web. #Quote by Peter Morville
Librarian quotes by Genevieve Cogman
#15. What were the requirements for using the Language? That the Librarian using it should be able to name and describe what they wanted to happen, and that the Librarian should have the strength to compel reality to change itself. And that the universe could hear her words. #Quote by Genevieve Cogman
Librarian quotes by Bjarne Stroustrup
#16. The standard library saves programmers from having to reinvent the wheel. #Quote by Bjarne Stroustrup
Librarian quotes by Herbert S. White
#17. We cannot have good libraries until we first have good librarians-properly educated, profesionally recognized and fairly rewarded. #Quote by Herbert S. White
Librarian quotes by Joseph Fink
#18. And now a word about librarians.

We are all, from our youngest years, warned that the most dangerous, untrustworthy creature is that which stalks our public libraries. We all remember, as children, having this told to us by frazzled men in rumpled suits clutching ancient tomes to their chests.

"Aaaarrrruuuggghhh," they would say, pointing at a diagram that was just a square with the word LIBRARY written neatly in the middle of it.

"Ouuugh!" they would continue, pointing at the clearest photograph ever taken of a librarian, which is a blurry and badly burnt Polaroid.

"Oh! Oh! Oh!" they would conclude, pointing at the first diagram again. It was always a very short presentation.

Then the men would run from our classrooms, looking fearfully around and muttering, "There's no time, just no time," and never would be seen again.

These warnings, as playfully conveyed as they were, are serious matters that should be applied to your grown-up, serious life. Librarians are hideous creatures of unimaginable power. And even if you could imagine their power, it would be illegal. It is absolutely illegal to even try to picture what such a being would be like.

So just watch out for librarians, okay? #Quote by Joseph Fink
Librarian quotes by Beth Fantaskey
#19. She, of all people, knew the sacred trust that word
implied. Because a librarian was supposed to to be a spiritual, intellectual mentor who kept your secrets and didn't give you a funny look when you checked out a book on the care and feeding of pythons ... A librarian opened up new doors for you, intellectually, too, without shoving you through them.
A librarian was important. #Quote by Beth Fantaskey
Librarian quotes by Michael Erard
#20. Knowing I might never visit the archives again, I had hit on a solution to get at Mezzofanti's proficiency: I'd count the letters he received in each language. If he got many, he must have been writing a lot, and that, maybe, pointed to a great deal of practice, then to a high degree of proficiency. It was a fair social science hypothesis.
I told Pasti about my plan. The librarian smirked at me. "You're a positivist, I think," he said. A positivist is someone who believes you can get at truths only through what can be counted, measured, and observed. I was shocked - I've been called names before, but never that. #Quote by Michael Erard
Librarian quotes by Carl Sagan
#21. I went to the librarian and asked for a book about stars ... and the answer was stunning. It was that the Sun was a star but really close. The stars were suns, but so far away they were just little points of light. The scale of the universe suddenly opened up to me. It was a kind of religious experience. There was a magnificence to it, a grandeur, a scale which has never left me. Never ever left me. #Quote by Carl Sagan
Librarian quotes by Zoe Heller
#22. But about the drip drip of long-haul, no-end-in-sight solitude, they know nothing. They don't know what it is to construct an entire weekend around a visit to the laundrette. Or to sit in a darkened flat on Halloween night, because you can't bear to expose your bleak evening to a crowd of jeering trick-or-treaters. Or to have the librarian smile pityingly and say, 'Goodness, you're a quick reader!' when you bring back seven books, read from cover to cover, a week after taking them out. They don't know what it is to be so chronically untouched that the accidental brush of a bus conductor's hand on your shoulder sends a jolt of longing straight to your groin. #Quote by Zoe Heller
Librarian quotes by Kimberly Long Cockroft
#23. Of all the places I have walked into, libraries must be the most magical. Have you ever opened the cover of a book and wondered what you would find inside? Where you would go? Whom you would meet? A story has the power to send you back in time or into the future, to transport you to other lands and kingdoms. I've met ogres, talking rabbits, and some of my best friends in the pages of books.
Librarians might just have the best jobs ever. With each library card they hand out, they offer a ticket to strange and marvelous worlds. Open a book and, like Reading Beauty, you might fall under a spell - the magic of a deep read. But chances are, unlike the Sleeping Beauty of the original fairy tale, you will never want the spell to be broken. #Quote by Kimberly Long Cockroft
Librarian quotes by Nick Offerman
#24. My family has schoolteachers and librarians, and I think people who teach are probably some of our greatest American heroes. Certainly, underpaid and unsung. #Quote by Nick Offerman
Librarian quotes by Sherman Alexie
#25. How many books do you have here?" Corliss asked. "Two million, one hundred thousand, and eleven," the librarian said proudly, but Corliss was frightened. What happens to the world when that many books go unread? And what happens to the unread authors of those unread books? #Quote by Sherman Alexie
Librarian quotes by Kathleen Norris
#26. When I was a child, it was a matter of pride that I could plow through a Nancy Drew story in one afternoon, and begin another in the evening ... I was probably trying to impress the librarians who kept me supplied with books. #Quote by Kathleen Norris
Librarian quotes by Umberto Eco
#27. You must consider that the librarian (if not overworked or neurotic) is happy when he can demonstrate two things: the quality of his memory and erudition and the richness of his library, especially if it is small. The more isolated and disregarded the library, the more the librarian is consumed with sorrow for its underestimation. A person who asks for help makes the librarian happy. #Quote by Umberto Eco
Librarian quotes by Martha Cooley
#28. My work is whatever I want it to be, and I report to no one regularly. The head librarian
the man in charge of the University's entire collection
is a figurehead, well-to-do and poorly read, with whom I have only perfunctory contact. #Quote by Martha Cooley
Librarian quotes by Kristin Cashore
#29. Lady Queen," he said, "You've given me all I want. You're the queen a librarian dreams of. #Quote by Kristin Cashore
Librarian quotes by Jonathan Riggs
#30. It came to me then that we're each something of a constant gardener of a million forgotten galaxies, a librarian of lost places and times, a curator of a museum of random details that really only matter to each of us. #Quote by Jonathan Riggs
Librarian quotes by Maggie Gee
#31. Albion Park on a fierce spring morning. A mad March day of ice and fire. Thomas's feet beat a tattoo on the path. Every hair, every bristle on his chin stands on end. He is a small star-ship of blazing neurons- He is a librarian on his way to work, half-blind with sun and cold and memory. #Quote by Maggie Gee
Librarian quotes by Richard Matheson
#32. The day the library was shut down, he thought, some maiden librarian had moved down the room, pushing each chair against its table. Carefully, with a plodding precision that was the cachet of herself. #Quote by Richard Matheson
Librarian quotes by Anonymous
#33. We made a big fuss over the possibility of microbes on Mars. If orangutans were Martians we'd cherish them, we'd be so amazed at how they're like us but not like us, they'd be invited to tea and cigars at the White House. But they're apes, sad in zoos, funny in movies, useful in advertisements and in fantasy books, I'm almost ashamed to say, but at least the Discworld's Librarian has done his bit for the species and caused more than a few bob to flow their way. #Quote by Anonymous
Librarian quotes by Lemony Snicket
#34. The moths were fluttering all over the sign at the desk that read DASHIELL QWERTY, SUB-LIBRARIAN. He was younger than I think of librarians as being, younger than the father of anyone I knew, and he had the hairstyle one gets if one is attacked by a scissors-carrying maniac and lives to tell the tale. #Quote by Lemony Snicket
Librarian quotes by Danah Boyd
#35. I love librarians. They always make me feel like the world's gonna be AOK. #Quote by Danah Boyd
Librarian quotes by Marilyn Johnson
#36. A library is a place to go for a reality check, a bracing dose of literature, or a "true reflection of our history," whether it's a brick-and-mortar building constructed a century ago or a fanciful arrangement of computer codes. The librarian is the organizer, the animating spirit behind it, and the navigator. Her job is to create order out of the confusion of the past, even as she enables us to blast into the future. #Quote by Marilyn Johnson
Librarian quotes by Terry Pratchett
#37. A book has been taken. A book has been taken? You summoned the Watch," Carrot drew himself up proudly, "because someone's taken a book? You think that's worse than murder?"
The Librarian gave him the kind of look other people would reserve for people who said things like "What's so bad about genocide? #Quote by Terry Pratchett
Librarian quotes by Lev Grossman
#38. To make matters worse, some of the books had actually become migratory. In the nineteenth century Brakebills had appointed a librarian with a highly Romantic imagination who had envisioned a mobile library in which books fluttered from shelf to shelf like birds, reorganizing themselves spontaneously under their own pwer in response to searches. For the first few months the effect was sadi to have been quite dramatic. A painteding the scned survived as a mural behind the circulation desk, with enormaous atlases soaring around the place like condors.
But the system turned out to be totally impractical. The wear and tear o the spines alone was too costly, and the books were horribly disobedient. The librarian had imagined he could summon a given book to perch on his hand just by shouting out its call number, but in actuality they were just too willful, and some were actively predatory. The librarian was swiftly dposed, and his successor set about domesticating the books again, but even now there were stragglers, notably in Swiss History and Architecture 300-1399, that stubbornly flapped around near the ceiling. Once in a while an entire sub - sub-category that had long been thought safely dormant would take wing with an indescribably papery susurrus. #Quote by Lev Grossman
Librarian quotes by Rowling J K
#39. A warning: If you rip, tear, shred, bend, fold, deface, disfigure, smear, smudge, throw, drop, or in any other manner damage, mistreat, or show lack of respect towards this book, the consequences will be as awful as it is within my power to make them. - Irma Pince, Hogwarts Librarian #Quote by Rowling J K
Librarian quotes by Jennifer Chiaverini
#40. One can never have too many librarian friends. #Quote by Jennifer Chiaverini
Librarian quotes by Richard Powers
#41. Librarian is a service occupation. Gas station attendant of the mind. #Quote by Richard Powers
Librarian quotes by Kristin Hannah
#42. The love of books, of reading. There is nothing a librarian likes better than sharing her love of words with a child. #Quote by Kristin Hannah
Librarian quotes by Suzanne Kelman
#43. I soon forgot about my bedraggled appearance. Until, that is, an old man shuffled in and propped himself, hunched and wheezing, over the check-in desk. Karen asked him if he needed assistance.
"No," he grunted sucking on his teeth, "your wet-T-shirt librarian with the punk rock hair is helping me out just fine. #Quote by Suzanne Kelman
Librarian quotes by Lady Gaga
#44. I live between fantasy and reality at all times. In that way, I'm a librarian. #Quote by Lady Gaga
Librarian quotes by Augusta Scattergood
#45. I walked straight to the library. Mrs. Bloom, the librarian, always knows everything. #Quote by Augusta Scattergood
Librarian quotes by Lynne Stewart
#46. I got a job as a children's librarian at PS 175 in Harlem, and that changed everything. That was an epiphany. I didn't know Harlem existed. I didn't know there was such a place, because I grew up in white Queens, where five miles is 100 miles. #Quote by Lynne Stewart
Librarian quotes by John Palfrey
#47. The time is when a library is a school, and the librarian is the highest sense a teacher. - Melvil Dewey, 1876 #Quote by John Palfrey
Librarian quotes by Rebecca Makkai
#48. These were wise, modern children, and they knew: a mother could be a witch, a child could be a criminal. A librarian could be a thief. #Quote by Rebecca Makkai
Librarian quotes by Terry Pratchett
#49. The Librarian was not familiar with love, which had always struck him as a bit ethereal and soppy, but kindness, on the other hand, was practical. You knew where you were with kindness, especially if you were holding a pie it had just given you. #Quote by Terry Pratchett
Librarian quotes by Jon Cohen
#50. Is everything a story to you?" Harry called after her.
"Absolutely!" came Olive's voice. "I'm a librarian, dear! #Quote by Jon Cohen
Librarian quotes by Terry Pratchett
#51. Nutt was technically an expert on love poetry throughout the ages and had discussed it at length with Miss Healstether, the castle librarian. He had also tried to discuss it with Ladyship, but she had laughed and said it was frivolity, although quite helpful as a tutorial on the use of vocabulary, scansion, rhythm and affect as a means to an end, to wit getting a young lady to take all her clothes off. At that particular point, Nutt had not really understood what she meant. It sounded like some sort of conjuring trick. #Quote by Terry Pratchett
Librarian quotes by Sarah J. Maas
#52. Fleetfoot just zoomed on by, a blur of gold.
A moment later, when the little librarian came waddling into view and asked if they'd seen a dog, Celaena only shook her head and said that she had heard something
from the opposite direction. And then she told him to keep his voice down, because this was a library.
His eyes shooting daggers at her, the man huffed and scuttled away, his shouting a bit softer.
When he was gone, Dorian turned to her, brows high on his head. #Quote by Sarah J. Maas
Librarian quotes by Peter Ackroyd
#53. And the smell of the library was always the same - the musty odour of old clothes mixed with the keener scent of unwashed bodies, creating what the chief librarian had once described as 'the steam of the social soup.' #Quote by Peter Ackroyd
Librarian quotes by Jeanette Winterson
#54. It is always a mistake to argue with a librarian. #Quote by Jeanette Winterson
Librarian quotes by Ted Rall
#55. I suppose I could have been nicer when I was at Columbia. I could have been polite, respectful, turned in my papers on time. Funny thing is, I knew a guy like that. English major. Loved to read. Never got in any trouble, just hung out in Butler Library reading poetry and English history. Ran into him the other day. Guy has three master's degrees, taught high school, even did a few years in the Marines. Know what he does today?
He makes $9.75 an hour as a librarian.
I was a jerk when I went to Columbia. But I was never a sucker. #Quote by Ted Rall
Librarian quotes by Robertson Davies
#56. Nothing is more dangerous to maidenly delicacy of speech than the run of a good library. #Quote by Robertson Davies
Librarian quotes by Dan Chaon
#57. Beth had been a middle school science teacher and Joni was a librarian and they both had collections of weird stuff they had found. Bizarre, misspelled letters written by lovelorn eighth graders. Obscene Polaroids left in between the pages of library books. They used to call each other on the phone to share their latest discovery, and Critter had always remained a little off to the side, never feeling quite as sharp or ironic as they were. Critter was an electrician, primarily home repair, and so he didn't usually come across anything except bad wiring and faulty lighting fixtures. #Quote by Dan Chaon
Librarian quotes by Patricia Briggs
#58. My mother was a children's librarian. I remember when traditional stories were revised for modern audiences until they bore only a nodding acquaintance with the originals, but were released as 'authentic Indian stories' when they were, in fact, nothing of the kind. #Quote by Patricia Briggs
Librarian quotes by Simon R. Green
#59. I finally found my way to the Really Restricted Section, where they keep the kind of books most scholars aren't even supposed to know exist. I knocked on the closed door, said the proper passwords, and the door opened before me. I walked in, and the ghost of the Head Librarian, a thin, dusty presence, with dark eyes and a disapproving look, appeared before me, blocking my way. (He had been eaten by a book, then brought back by the other books, apparently because they approved of him. Because even though he didn't have much time for people, he loved books.) #Quote by Simon R. Green
Librarian quotes by Laurie Halse Anderson
#60. The light beyond my eyes flashflashflashes with a hundred futures for me. Doctor. Ship's captain. Forest ranger. Librarian. Beloved of that man or that women or those children or those people who voted for me or who painted my picture. Poet. Acrobat. Engineer. Friend. Guardian. Avenging whirlwind. A million futures
not all pretty, not all long, but all of them mine. I do have a choice - p. 271 #Quote by Laurie Halse Anderson
Librarian quotes by Joyce Carol Oates
#61. As a librarian for 18 years at the Merck branch of the Trenton Public Library, I was sorely tested by the slow-witted and obtuse among the citizenry #Quote by Joyce Carol Oates
Librarian quotes by Ray Bradbury
#62. Teachers are to inspire; librarians are to fulfill. #Quote by Ray Bradbury
Librarian quotes by Sarah Houghton
#63. The library in 2020 will be ruled by geeks. In my happy vision for the future, libraries are ruled by benign geek librarian overlords and the world is full of awesome. #Quote by Sarah Houghton
Librarian quotes by Lewis Henry Steiner
#64. One function of the librarian, as he saw it, was to blunt the edge of these differences and to provide a means whereby the rich and poor could live happily side by side. The public library was a great leveler, supplying a literature by which the ordinary man could experience some of the pleasures of the rich, and providing a common ground where employer and employee could meet on equal terms. #Quote by Lewis Henry Steiner
Librarian quotes by Jay Kristoff
#65. Problem with being a librarian is there's some lessons you just can't learn from books. And the problem with being an assassin is there's some mysteries you just can't solve by stabbing the fuck out of them. #Quote by Jay Kristoff
Librarian quotes by Neal Stephenson
#66. In many parts of the world, you will find people of the
same ethnic group, living a few miles apart in similar valleys under similar
conditions, speaking languages that have absolutely nothing in common with each
other. This sort of thing is not an oddity -- it is ubiquitous. Many linguists
have tried to understand Babel, the question of why human language tends to
fragment, rather than converging on a common tongue?" "Has anyone come up with
an answer yet?"
"The question is difficult and profound," the Librarian says. "Lagos had a
"He believed that Babel was an actual historical event. That it happened in a
particular time and place, coinciding with the disappearance of the Sumerian
language. That prior to Babel Infopocalypse, languages tended to converge. And
that afterward, languages have always had an innate tendency to diverge and
become mutually incomprehensible -- that this tendency is, as he put it, coiled
like a serpent around the human brainstem."
"The only thing that could explain that is --" Hiro stops, not wanting to say
"Yes?" the Librarian says.
"If there was some phenomenon that moved through the population, altering their
minds in such a way that they couldn't process the Sumerian language anymore.
Kind of in the same way that a virus moves from one computer to another,
damaging each computer in the same way. Coiling around the bra #Quote by Neal Stephenson
Librarian quotes by Peter Singer
#67. If we can put a man on the moon and sequence the human genome, we should be able to devise something close to a universal digital public library. #Quote by Peter Singer
Librarian quotes by Gary Paulsen
#68. She was brilliant and joyous and she believed- probably correctly- that libraries contain the answers to all things, to everything, and that if you can't find the information you seek in the library, then such information probably doesn't exist in this or any parallel universe now or ever to be known. She was thoughtful and kind and she always believed the best of everybody. She was, above all else, a master librarian and she knew where to find any book on any subject in the shortest possible time.
And she was wonderfully unhinged. #Quote by Gary Paulsen
Librarian quotes by Zoe Heller
#69. Being alone is not the most awful thing in the world. You visit your museums and cultivate your interests and remind yourself how lucky you are not to be one of those spindly Sudanese children with flies beading their mouths. You make out To Do lists - reorganise linen cupboard, learn two sonnets. You dole out little treats to yourself - slices of ice-cream cake, concerts at Wigmore Hall. And then, every once in a while, you wake up and gaze out of the window at another bloody daybreak, and think, I cannot do this anymore. I cannot pull myself together again and spend the next fifteen hours of wakefulness fending off the fact of my own misery.

People like Sheba think that they know what it's like to be lonely. They cast their minds back to the time they broke up with a boyfriend in 1975 and endured a whole month before meeting someone new. Or the week they spent in a Bavarian steel town when they were fifteen years old, visiting their greasy-haired German pen pal and discovering that her hand-writing was the best thing about her. But about the drip drip of long-haul, no-end-in-sight solitude, they know nothing. They don't know what it is to construct an entire weekend around a visit to the laundrette. Or to sit in a darkened flat on Halloween night, because you can't bear to expose your bleak evening to a crowd of jeering trick-or-treaters. Or to have the librarian smile pityingly and say, 'Goodness, you're a quick reader!' when you bring back seven books, read fro #Quote by Zoe Heller
Librarian quotes by Melvil Dewey
#70. The time was when a library was very like a museum and the librarian a mouser among dusty books. The time is when the library is a school and the librarian in the highest sense a teacher. #Quote by Melvil Dewey
Librarian quotes by Garth Nix
#71. She fought back the tears in her eyes, because though she no longer felt she was one of the Clayr, she still felt she was a librarian and always would be, no matter what else she had become as well. #Quote by Garth Nix
Librarian quotes by Kim Stanley Robinson
#72. And Sarah still looked like the sexiest librarian on earth, which is as those of you who frequent libraries know means very sexy indeed, but with that added owlish touch that drives you wild. #Quote by Kim Stanley Robinson
Librarian quotes by The Doctor
#73. You want weapons? We're in a library! Books! The best weapons in the world! #Quote by The Doctor
Librarian quotes by Terry Pratchett
#74. I'm not bloody well going to have it, understand?" Vimes shouted, shaking the ape back and forth.
"Oook," the Librarian pointed out, patiently.
"What? Oh. Sorry." Vimes lowered the ape, who wisely didn't make an issue out of it because a man angry enough to lift 300 pounds of orangutan without noticing is a man with too much on his mind. #Quote by Terry Pratchett
Librarian quotes by Aubrey Rose
#75. Well, it would be helpful to not have to go through all of these in Braille," the man said. "I'm looking for the local wildlife guide and one other book." He held a paper out in front of him, and she took it. "The head librarian wrote the authors' names down for me," the man said, grinning. "I don't think she realized I couldn't read it." "That would be my boss," Julia sighed. "She's ... she's the kind of person who yells at deaf people. #Quote by Aubrey Rose
Librarian quotes by Lady Gaga
#76. I am a woman of theatre, I'm a librarian of theatre and I love all different kinds of music and all different kinds of expressions. #Quote by Lady Gaga
Librarian quotes by Deborah Blake
#77. It might be a wild-goose chase."
"I am quite fond of geese, myself," Mikhail said. #Quote by Deborah Blake
Librarian quotes by A.S. Byatt
#78. It was immediately clear that the book had been undisturbed for a very long time, perhaps even since it had been laid to rest. The librarian fetched a checked duster, and wiped away the dust, a black, thick, tenacious Victorian dust, a dust composed of smoke and fog particles accumulated before the Clean Air acts. #Quote by A.S. Byatt
Librarian quotes by Terry Pratchett
#79. Knowledge equals power ...
The string was important. After a while the Librarian stopped. He concentrated all his powers of librarianship.
Power equals energy ...
People were stupid, sometimes. They thought the Library was a dangerous place because of all the magical books, which was true enough, but what made it really one of the most dangerous places there could ever be was the simple fact that it was a library.
Energy equals matter ...
He swung into an avenue of shelving that was apparently a few feet long and walked along it briskly for half an hour.
Matter equals mass.
And mass distorts space. It distorts it into polyfractal L-space.
So, while the Dewey system has its fine points, when you're setting out to look something up in the multidimensional folds of L-space what you really need is a ball of string. #Quote by Terry Pratchett
Librarian quotes by Stephen J. Cannell
#80. A few minutes later, a very slim, very directed black-haired woman with olive skin and a classic profile swept into the room. Her hair was pulled back in a bun. She was the executive assistant version of the beautiful librarian cliché. Severe suit, abrupt manner, glasses perched on her nose and secured on a no-nonsense chain around her neck. But you knew when she took those specs off and let down her hair, the results would be dazzling. #Quote by Stephen J. Cannell
Librarian quotes by Edward De Bono
#81. One can think of a secretary actively operating a filing system, of a librarian actively cataloguing books, of a computer actively sorting out information. The mind however does not actively sort out information. The information sorts itself out and organises itself into patterns. The mind is passive. The mind only provides an opportunity for the information to behave in this way. The mind provides a special environment in which information can become self-organising. This special environment is a memory surface with special characteristics. #Quote by Edward De Bono
Librarian quotes by Thomas Jefferson
#82. A democratic society depends upon an informed and educated citizenry. #Quote by Thomas Jefferson
Librarian quotes by Kami Garcia
#83. Without libraries what have we? We have no past and no future. Just ask Ray Bradbury. #Quote by Kami Garcia
Librarian quotes by Marilyn Johnson
#84. Librarians' values are as sound as Girl Scouts': truth, free speech, and universal literacy. And, like Scouts, they possess a quality that I think makes librarians invaluable and indispensable: they want to help. They want to help us. They want to be of service. And they're not trying to sell us anything. #Quote by Marilyn Johnson
Librarian quotes by Jennifer Chiaverini
#85. One can never had too many librarian friends. #Quote by Jennifer Chiaverini
Librarian quotes by Michael Moore
#86. [Librarians] are subversive. You think they're just sitting there at the desk, all quiet and everything. They're like plotting the revolution, man. I wouldn't mess with them. #Quote by Michael Moore
Librarian quotes by Peter Shaffer
#87. Librarians as a race tend to be tedious. #Quote by Peter Shaffer
Librarian quotes by David Davis
#88. Nick chided a censor, who wished some books gone, and suggested she scan Fahrenheit 451. For the book-budget cutters, Old Claus had no plan, cause if they could read, they just read Ayn Rand. #Quote by David Davis
Librarian quotes by Terry Pratchett
#89. As I am sure some of you know, I boast of the fact that for a couple of years I was a volunteer librarian, working weekends for no more reward than a cup of tea, a sweet biscuit, and a blind eye to the enormous number of books that I was taking home. #Quote by Terry Pratchett
Librarian quotes by Dan Gemeinhart
#90. No. You can't leave a library. Without a book. #Quote by Dan Gemeinhart
Librarian quotes by Lady Gaga
#91. Glam culture is ultimately rooted in obsession, and those of us who are truly devoted and loyal to the lifestyle of glamour are masters of its history. Or, to put it more elegantly, we are librarians. #Quote by Lady Gaga
Librarian quotes by Marilyn Johnson
#92. One of the reasons I decided to enter this profession," one of the Riot Librarrrians wrote, "was because I'm in love with information, and the library remains one of the few spaces in our lives where information is not a commodity ... There's a subversive element to librarianship that I adore. #Quote by Marilyn Johnson
Librarian quotes by Brandon Sanderson
#93. Authors also create lovable, friendly characters, then proceed to do terrible things to them, like throw them in unsightly librarian-controlled dungeons. This makes readers feel hurt and worried for the characters. The simple truth is that authors like making people squirm. If this weren't the case, all novels would be filled completely with cute bunnies having birthday parties. #Quote by Brandon Sanderson
Librarian quotes by Annette J. Dunlea
#94. The journey home was made short by Ronan's tales of research on love. He confessed to Katie he was not good at expressing his inner feelings. He adopted the Socratic Method and asked all his friends and family for advice. They proved no help so he enlisted the help of Lovely Lucy Looney, the local librarian. He went and researched love, sex and flirting. He spoke of Lucy's shock on his many visits to the library and his mortification but Katie's love was worth all embarrassment. She was touched by his Herculean efforts and knew he was her soul mate #Quote by Annette J. Dunlea

Librarian quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#97. We measure time through a mental framework trussed with two major stakes: memory and expectation. Memory is that spottiness that takes place behind the eyes: memory takes place in the cloistered theater that houses diffused still pictures. We file mental pictures that encapsulate our prior life into mental shelves for a wayward librarian to cull through and forward select recollection to the recall center whenever summoned. Expectations arise from thoughtful consideration of our future prospects in life. #Quote by Kilroy J. Oldster
Librarian quotes by Pippa Grant
#98. You're still like a chocolate cupcake while I'm that weird lemon-white chocolate cookie people always pick last because it's weird. #Quote by Pippa Grant

Librarian quotes by Lori Reed
#100. Believe it or not working in libraries is very similar to working on an ambulance or a fire truck. You take care of a lot of homeless people, you sometimes have to clean up things that require latex gloves, you always wear comfortable shoes, and you put out a lot of "fires"! #Quote by Lori Reed
Librarian quotes by Juliana Hatfield
#101. At heart I am a librarian, a bird-watcher, a transcendentalist, a gardener, a spinster, a monk. #Quote by Juliana Hatfield
Librarian quotes by Theresa Breslin
#102. What I try to do - and I think this is the former librarian in me - is to get primary source material. #Quote by Theresa Breslin
Librarian quotes by Edward Gorey
#103. I thought I'd be a librarian until I met some crazy ones. #Quote by Edward Gorey
Librarian quotes by Lisa Kleypas
#104. Severin wasn't handsome in comparison to the Challons- of course, what man would be?- nor was he handsome by strictly conventional standards. But there was something about him that women seemed to like. West was damned if he knew what it was. Severin's face was lean and angular, his build lanky and almost rawboned, his complexion librarian pale. His eyes were an unevenly distributed mixture of blue and green, so that in strong lighting they appeared to be two entirely different colors. #Quote by Lisa Kleypas
Librarian quotes by Primo Levi
#105. The librarian, whom I had never seen before, presided over the library like a watchdog, one of those poor dogs who are deliberately made vicious by being chained up and given little to eat; ot better, like the old, toothless cobra, pale because of centuries of darkness, who guards the king's treasure in the Jungle Book. Paglietta, poor woman, was little less than a lusus naturae: she was small, without breasts or hips, waxen, wilted, and monstrously myopic; she wore glasses so thick and concave that, looking at her head-on, her eyes, light blue, almost white, seemed very far away, stuck at the back of her cranium. She gave the impression of never having been young, although she was certainly not more than thirty, and of having been born there, in the shadows, in that vague odor of mildew and stale air. #Quote by Primo Levi
Librarian quotes by Nick Pageant
#106. No one ever spoke above a whisper in the staff lounge, but I felt the need to shush her anyway. I gave her my best librarian frown and put one finger to my lips. It works every time. We librarians are like practitioners of Jedi mind-control when it comes to shushing. #Quote by Nick Pageant
Librarian quotes by Stephen King
#107. Ghostly, in his mind, Ben heard the librarian reading to the little ones: Who is that trip-trapping upon my bridge? The children lean forward, all the old fascination glistening in their eyes: will the monster be bested ... or will It feed? #Quote by Stephen King
Librarian quotes by Laura Bush
#108. I have found the most valuable thing in my wallet is my library card. #Quote by Laura Bush
Librarian quotes by Margo Lanagan
#109. My mum was a librarian, and she brought home a lot of interesting books, and we just read and read. I suppose I didn't really think I could be a writer myself until I was working in editing in my 20s and discovered that actually, the books that came in were not very much like published books. #Quote by Margo Lanagan
Librarian quotes by Karen Russell
#110. Heaven, Kiwi thought, would be the reading room of a great library. But it would be private. Cozy. You wouldn't have to worry about some squeaky-shoed librarian turning the lights off on you or gauging your literacy by reading the names on your book spines, and there wouldn't be a single other patron. The whole place would hum with a library's peace, filtering softly over you like white bars of light ... #Quote by Karen Russell
Librarian quotes by Susan Elizabeth Phillips
#111. I take every opportunity I can to speak to librarians. #Quote by Susan Elizabeth Phillips
Librarian quotes by Alyssa Cole
#112. Excuse me?"
The librarian looked up again.
"I need help now. I need to print this article and . . . do you have any books about dukes?"
The librarian's eyes went wide and she rubbed her hands together with glee. "We have a fantastic romance section," she said. "Do you need recommendations? How do you like your dukes? Grumpy? Tortured? Alpha, beta, or alpha in the streets, beta in the sheets?"
"Actually, I meant nonfiction," Portia said glumly.
The librarian sighed. "Aye. Just a warning, love - the non-fic dukes are not nearly as fun. #Quote by Alyssa Cole
Librarian quotes by Grace Paley
#113. I got up and went into the library to see how much I owed them.
The librarian said $32 even and you've owed it for eighteen years. I didn't deny anything. Because I don't understand how time passes. I have had those books. I have often thought of them. The library is only two blocks away. #Quote by Grace Paley
Librarian quotes by Seth Godin
#114. We need librarians more than we ever did. What we don't need are mere clerks who guard dead paper. Librarians are too important to be a dwindling voice in our culture. For the right librarian, this is the chance of a lifetime. #Quote by Seth Godin
Librarian quotes by Gloria Steinem
#115. I was rescued by librarians. It was librarians who said 'maybe you would like to read The Hardy Boys as well as Nancy Drew.' It is true for me, as for so many countless others, that librarians saved my life, my internal life. #Quote by Gloria Steinem
Librarian quotes by Garth Nix
#116. She was no longer a shy Second Assistant Librarian. She was the Abhorsen-in-Waiting. #Quote by Garth Nix
Librarian quotes by Joseph Fink
#117. The other option was to go to the public library. Few people came back from a visit to the library. There was one girl a few years ago the survived the summer reading program at the Night Vale Public Library. The girl, Tamika Flynn, defeated the librarian that had imprisoned her and her classmates using the switchblade hidden in every hardback edition of Eudora Welty's touching homecoming novel, The Optimist's Daughter. But few who have seen a librarian up close have survived or been in a physical condition to communicate. #Quote by Joseph Fink
Librarian quotes by Samuel Green
#118. The more freely a librarian mingles with readers, and the greater the amount of assistance he renders them, the more intense does the conviction of citizens become, that the library is a useful institution, and the more willing do they grow to grant money in larger and larger sums to be used in buying books and employing additional assistants. #Quote by Samuel Green
Librarian quotes by Mike Mullin
#119. A librarian can't live by books alone, and I wouldn't eat them if I could. Feel too much like cannibalism. #Quote by Mike Mullin
Librarian quotes by Kristan Higgins
#120. The librarian, the warrior, the free spirit ... archetypes are a great jumping off point to help clarify where we want to go with a character. #Quote by Kristan Higgins
Librarian quotes by Jonathan L. Howard
#121. There may be trouble. Anybody goes in there needs to know how to handle a gun. Do you?"

Lovecraft angled her head back until she was looking at Harrelson down her nose. "I trained as a librarian, and I run a bookstore. Fucking right I can use a gun." pg. 221. #Quote by Jonathan L. Howard
Librarian quotes by Gina Sheridan

Librarian quotes by Kendall Ryan
#123. Gone was the meek little librarian. Gavin made me wanton and reckless #Quote by Kendall Ryan
Librarian quotes by Larissa Lai
#124. The library was a great sprawling complex with rolls and rolls of paper tucked into many shelves. Between the reading rooms were courtyards with living fountains and singing birds and butterflies that would transform into handsome young women to guide or entertain anyone who stayed there any length of time. I saw one among the stacks, explaining an older style of calligraphy to the newly appointed Heavenly Marine Official of the South China Sea. In another wing, a librarian stepped from her chrysalis for the first time, reciting T'ang Dynasty poetry to the flowers. That's how I knew I was in the right section. #Quote by Larissa Lai
Librarian quotes by Jules Verne
#125. The formalities necessary to obtain a work were quite complicated; the borrower's form had to contain the book's title, format, publication date, edition number, and the author's name- in other words, unless one was already informed, one could not become so. At the bottom, spaces were left to indicate the borrower's age, address, profession, and purpose of research. Michel obeyed these regulations and handed his properly filled-out form to the librarian sleeping at his desk; following his example, the pages were snoring loudly on chairs set around the wall; their functions had become a sinecure as complete as those of the ushers at the Comedie-Francaise. The librarian, waking with a start, stared at the bold young man; he read the form and appeared to be stupefied at the request; after much deliberation, to Michel's alarm, he sent the latter to a subordinate official working near his own window, but at a separate little desk... #Quote by Jules Verne
Librarian quotes by Terry Pratchett
#126. The librarians were mysterious. It was said they could tell what book you needed just by looking at you, and they could take your voice away with a word. #Quote by Terry Pratchett
Librarian quotes by Judy Blume
#127. Librarians save lives: by handing the right book, at the right time, to a kid in need #Quote by Judy Blume
Librarian quotes by Jenna Bush
#128. [My mom] had always wanted to write a children's book. She was a children's librarian and an elementary school teacher, so of course she loves children and children's literature. #Quote by Jenna Bush
Librarian quotes by Flynn Meaney
#129. I did remember. The librarian had picked me up and held me to her chest as we evacuated beneath the flashing fire alarm. I'd felt so safe and nonflammable between her breasts.
"So what's that got to do with you?" I asked.
"I knew you liked her," Luke said. "So I set that up."
"You pulled the alarm?" I asked, shocked.
"No!" Luke protested. Then he grinned. "I set the fire. #Quote by Flynn Meaney
Librarian quotes by Tao Lin
#130. But then his parents changed. A year of California had changed them. They stopped sending money. Greg was forced to go out into the world, to interact with real people. And he was glad of this. He had always wanted to be a normal person. To be at ease in society. He had just been too scared to try. But now he was forced to, and so he did–he went and got a job at the public library. He was not quite a librarian, but close. Greg was a shelver. There would be carts of books to shelve, then there would be no more carts of books to shelve, then there would be carts of books to shelve.

As a shelver, Greg felt that life was passing him by in a slow and distant, but massive, way–like the moon. #Quote by Tao Lin
Librarian quotes by Eleanor Brown
#131. Not me, of course, as I am now officially a spinster librarian and must stay home with my cat and drink tea. #Quote by Eleanor Brown
Librarian quotes by Mr. Minickey
#132. I've seen the world go up in flames. I've seen it smolder and singe, until there's nothing left. I've seen it as everyone else saw it. But I saw the flames for what they were. They weren't destruction or devastation. They were life and liberation. The fire was new start, and chance to change, to rebuild, to do better. The flames weren't damnation. They were salvation. #Quote by Mr. Minickey "The Lost Librarian " From "How The World Went Up In Flames"
Librarian quotes by Laini Taylor
#133. You needn't trouble yourself. He's only a librarian. #Quote by Laini Taylor
Librarian quotes by Guy Browning
#134. Libraries are brothels for the mind. Which means that librarians are the madams, greeting punters, understanding their strange tastes and needs, and pimping their books. #Quote by Guy Browning
Librarian quotes by Kate Morton
#135. After all, it's the librarian's sworn purpose to bring books together with their one true reader. #Quote by Kate Morton
Librarian quotes by Melvil Dewey

Librarian quotes by Saul Bellow
#137. People can lose their lives in libraries. They ought to be warned. #Quote by Saul Bellow
Librarian quotes by Andrea Seigel
#138. I'd go to the library so I could sit in a big, quiet room and listen to pages being turned. There was a boring librarian who everyone in fifth grade hated. But I loved her because when she would read us stories in her soft voice, she'd turn my head into a snow globe. #Quote by Andrea Seigel
Librarian quotes by Alan Bennett
#139. The next library is a place, still. A place where people come together to do co-working and coordinate and invent projects worth working on together. Aided by a librarian who can bring domain knowledge and people knowledge and access to information to bear. #Quote by Alan Bennett
Librarian quotes by Ian Sansom
#140. Everyone loved a good reader. And he'd always loved being a great reader - until recently. Maybe it was just part of getting older, or maybe it was being a librarian, or just being here, but lately he'd found he was becoming suspicious of his own love of books. All that reading - it had started to seem wrong, worthless almost, without purpose. #Quote by Ian Sansom
Librarian quotes by Terry Pratchett
#141. Yes, sir, but the Librarian likes bananas, sir."
"Very nourishin' fruit, Mr Stibbons."
"Yes, sir. Although, funnily enough it's not actually a fruit, sir."
"Yes, sir. Botanically, it's a type of fish, sir. According to my theory it's cladistically associated with the Krullian pipefish, sir, which of course is also yellow and goes around in bunches or shoals."
"And lives in trees?"
"Well, not usually, sir. The banana is obviously exploiting a new niche."
"Good heavens, really? It's a funny thing, but I've never much liked bananas and I've always been a bit suspicious of fish, too. That'd explain it. #Quote by Terry Pratchett
Librarian quotes by Kate Klise
#142. Just like old librarians, old coins are often more valuable than they appear at face value. #Quote by Kate Klise
Librarian quotes by Jane Stanton Hitchcock
#143. Libraries are like houses of worship: Whether or not you use them yourself, it's important to know that they are there. In many ways they define a society and the values of that society. Librarians to me are the keepers of the flame of knowledge. When I was growing up, the librarian in my local library looked like a meek little old lady, but after you spent some time with her, you realized she was Athena with a sword, a wise and wonderful repository of wisdom. #Quote by Jane Stanton Hitchcock
Librarian quotes by Neil Gaiman
#144. Of course you don't believe in fairies. You're fifteen. You think I believed in fairies at fifteen? Took me until I was at least a hundred and forty. Hundred and fifty, maybe. Anyway, he wasn't a fairy. He was a librarian. All right? #Quote by Neil Gaiman
Librarian quotes by Emma Chase
#145. As she starts to speak, my mind is suddenly filled with every hot-teacher fantasy I've ever had. They're playing out in my mind right next to the ones about the seemingly sexually repressed librarian who's really a leather-wearing, handcuff-bearing nymphomaniac. #Quote by Emma Chase
Librarian quotes by Ransom Riggs
#146. Even ymbrynes can't touch them. In the stories, only special adepts called librarians can see and handle them - and a librarian hasn't been born for a thousand years. If the library exists, all Jack would find there are empty shelves. #Quote by Ransom Riggs
Librarian quotes by Bella Street
#147. What the hell do you have on?"
Emily looked down at her ensemble. "I have done something wrong, haven't I?"
"Did Tinker put you up to this?"
"Well, she said it was my manager uniform."
" look like an oversexed librarian."
She blinked. "Is that a bad thing? #Quote by Bella Street
Librarian quotes by Penny Reid
#148. She said I owned the clothes of a radiologist and the shoes of an OBGYN; which is like the medical doctor equivalent of saying that I dressed like a librarian with a propensity of fuckmeboots. #Quote by Penny Reid
Librarian quotes by Scott Douglas
#149. There's something deep in the heart of every person that wants
to protect culture. The only thing about my pending career that
was changed because of 9/11 was that I began to see it was the community,
not the librarian, that was important to the library. Librarians
were only as important as the community they inspired. If I
was going to continue with this career, my job wouldn't be to protect
information, it would be to bring the community together and
inspire them to appreciate everything a library stands for. #Quote by Scott Douglas
Librarian quotes by Stephen Sommers

#151. A lot of help she was. Weren't witches supposed to have power? If you asked me Noel seemed more like a glorified gothic librarian. #Quote by Tara A. Fuller
Librarian quotes by Rick Yancey
#152. My first favourite book was 'Are You My Mother?' A picture book about a lost bird. After that my favourites changed almost yearly. I loved everything by Roald Dahl, but my favourite was probably 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.' A librarian gave me a first edition of that book, which I treasure. #Quote by Rick Yancey
Librarian quotes by Aaron Swartz
#153. When I go to a library and I see the librarian at her desk reading, I'm afraid to interrupt her, even though she sits there specifically so that she may be interrupted, even though being interrupted for reasons like this by people like me is her very job. #Quote by Aaron Swartz
Librarian quotes by Robert A. Heinlein
#154. Dad claims that library science is the foundation of all sciences just
as math is the key
and we will survive or founder, depending on how
well the librarians do their jobs. Librarians didn't look glamorous to
me but maybe Dad had hit on a not very obvious truth. #Quote by Robert A. Heinlein
Librarian quotes by Pseudonymous Bosch

Librarian quotes by Neal Stephenson
#158. Like any librarian in Reality, this daemon can move around without audible footfalls. #Quote by Neal Stephenson
Librarian quotes by Arthur E. Bostwick
#159. Some are born to greatness; some achieve greatness; some have greatness thrust upon them.' It is in this way that the librarian has become a censor of literature... books that distinctly commend what is wrong, that teach how to sin and how pleasant sin is, sometimes with and sometimes without the added sauce of impropriety, are increasingly popular, tempting to the author to imitate them, the publishers to produce, the bookseller to exploit. Thank heaven they do not tempt the librarian. #Quote by Arthur E. Bostwick
Librarian quotes by Maxim Gorky

Librarian quotes by Steven James Taylor
#163. You know what Mrs. Shure, the librarian, told me?" "What's that, Theo?" his father asked.
"God does not make junk."
Ted stared into his tumbler, the dwindling ice cubes sloshing at the bottom of the glass. His fidget finger tapped at the glass. Knocking the ice against the wall of the tumbler and turning his face upward, Ted looked at Theo.
"Therefore, I am not junk," said Theo.
"And I came from you. You are not junk either, Dad. Just because you didn't shoot a gun in France or just because you didn't become an engineer, doesn't mean you are any less than any other man. Dad, both you and I have made mistakes, but we are not junk. #Quote by Steven James Taylor
Librarian quotes by Fern Brady
#164. She was a librarian, dammit.
She knew books. She used the Dewey Decimal System. She taught the children to search with their eyes and their brains. They were encouraged to ask Moira for help, rather than punch titles into a screen. Moira believed all children needed to live through that awkward, precarious moment when they had to disrupt the silence of the library and approach the librarian. It built character. #Quote by Fern Brady
Librarian quotes by Libba Bray

Librarian quotes by Penny Reid
#166. The only items she approved of in my wardrobe were my shoes. In fact, she borrowed a pair of orange faux-crocodile leather wedge heals with a turquoise bow at the toe. I wore a zebra printed spiked heal; the rest of my outfit came from her closet. She said I owned the clothes of a radiologist and the shoes of an OBGYN; which is like the medical doctor equivalent of saying that I dressed like a librarian with a propensity for fuckmeboots. #Quote by Penny Reid
Librarian quotes by Germaine Greer
#167. Women who were housewives, who were pretty miserable ... felt inspired by her book and their life changed. They didn't become megastars, but they became a librarian or something. I've heard women say again and again when the subject of Germaine comes up: 'Well, her book changed my life for the better.' And they'll be modest women living pretty ordinary lives, but better lives. #Quote by Germaine Greer

Librarian quotes by Rachel Cohn
#170. All the librarians turned their heads to me in a collective shush. "I'm afraid you have to survive library school, put up with the general public on a daily basis, and endure several years of budget cuts in order to deserve these drinks," Chris told me kindly. "But someday, Dash, all this will be yours! We know how to spot 'em, and you're a young, temporarily one-eyed librarian in the rough! #Quote by Rachel Cohn

Librarian quotes by Laurelin Paige
#172. I close the book and text Livia back.

Okay, Fern Woman. I'll meet you at 8. Then I add, Are you super sure about the Nite's Inn?

She responds right away. I'll see you then, and I'm very sure. I'm doing this on a public servant's budget! And it's close to a Steak'n Shake, so you know it's in a good neighborhood.

...Liv. Kitten. They found a body in that Steak'n Shake's dumpster last year.

One body and all of a sudden it's a 'bad' place. You are so judgey! I, for one, won't be scared away by that one tiny thing. I like to see the best in places.

My radio goes off in my ear - a senior is causing a disturbance at a nursing home and they need all available units to respond. With a rueful smile to myself at my idealistic little librarian, I send her a final message and then climb out of my car.

See you tonight, Livvy-girl. Don't get thrown into a dumpster before I get there.

Even though I was mostly joking about the Murder Steak'n Shake, I get to the Nite's Inn half an hour early so that I can be extra sure she's not in the parking lot alone #Quote by Laurelin Paige
Librarian quotes by Frank Delaney
#173. I never met a librarian worth his or her salt who didn't perceive my passion for books. #Quote by Frank Delaney
Librarian quotes by Scott Douglas
#174. It makes logical sense that 168 is a greater number than 17, so why would you shelve 168 first? Because a librarian is always right. To the common man, this looks wrong, but to the librarian, this is right, because a librarian is never wrong. #Quote by Scott Douglas
Librarian quotes by Karen Joy Fowler
#175. When I run the world, librarians will be exempt from tragedy. Even their smaller sorrows will last only for as long as you can take out a book. #Quote by Karen Joy Fowler

Librarian quotes by W.P. Kinsella

If every punch, kick done by somebody female or male (it doesn't matter) or a curses said by one of this two sexes and every other thing which makes you feel that you aren't protected or you are heart. Was replacted with a book, that you don't receive a punch or kick, but a book you will be an a librarian! #Quote by Deyth Banger
Librarian quotes by T.E.D. Klein
#180. She took particular comfort in certain familiar sights and sounds that marked her day: the buzz of the fluorescent lights, the pale figures sprawled silent and motionless over their reading, the reassuring feel of her book cart as she wheeled it down the aisle, and the books themselves, symbols of order on their backs - young adulthood reduced to "YA," mystery reduced to a tiny red skull. #Quote by T.E.D. Klein
Librarian quotes by Alice Clayton
#181. I'm going to fuck you on this balustrade, so hard you'll feel it in your bones." He slowly breathed me in, nudging me with his nose. Sweet heaven, my librarian was a dirty talker. #Quote by Alice Clayton
Librarian quotes by Melvil Dewey
#182. To my thinking, a great librarian must have a clear head, a strong hand, and, above all, a great heart. And when I look into the future, I am inclined to think that most of the men who achieve this greatness will be women. #Quote by Melvil Dewey

Librarian quotes by Jonathan L. Howard

Librarian quotes by John Green
#186. Adult librarians are like lazy bakers: their patrons want a jelly doughnut, so they give them a jelly doughnut. Children's librarians are ambitious bakers: 'You like the jelly doughnut? I'll get you a jelly doughnut. But you should try my cruller, too. My cruller is gonna blow your mind, kid. #Quote by John Green
Librarian quotes by Garth Nix
#187. Even now, she wished she could write a note, push it across the table, and go away to her room. But she was no longer a Second Assistant Librarian of the Great Library of the Clayr. Those days were gone, vanished with everything else that had defined her previous existence and identity. #Quote by Garth Nix
Librarian quotes by Eugene H. Peterson
#188. I don't want to end up a bureaucrat in the time-management business for God or a librarian cataloguing timeless truths. Salvation is kicking in the womb of creation right now, any time now. Pay attention. #Quote by Eugene H. Peterson
Librarian quotes by James A. Michener
#189. As a boy I was saved from a life of ignorance by my little hometown library.
As a college student I was educated in the
stacks of the Swarthmore library. And as an adult I use libraries daily in my search for the facts and the enlightenment I use in writing my books.
In fact, I like libraries so much that I
married a librarian. #Quote by James A. Michener
Librarian quotes by America Ferrera
#190. The name America has definitely grown on me. I wish there was a big patriotic story behind it, but the truth is that my grandfather was a librarian who knew all sorts of random facts. #Quote by America Ferrera
Librarian quotes by Amy Bloom
#191. In stories, when someone behaves uncharacteristically, we take it as a meaningful, even pivotal moment. If we are surprised again and again, we have to keep changing our minds, or give up and disbelieve the writer. In real life, if people think they know you well enough not only to say, 'It's Tuesday, Amy must be helping out at the library today,' but well enough to say to the librarian, after you've left the building, 'You know, Amy just loves reading to the four-year-olds, I think it's been such a comfort for her since her little boy died' - if they know you like that, you can do almost anything where they can't see you, and when they hear about it, they will, as we do, simply disbelieve the narrator. #Quote by Amy Bloom
Librarian quotes by Ann Richards
#192. I have a real soft spot in my heart for librarians and people who care about books. #Quote by Ann Richards
Librarian quotes by Paulina Porizkova
#193. My boyfriend thinks I lost my true calling to be a librarian. #Quote by Paulina Porizkova
Librarian quotes by Rebecca Makkai
#194. Like a good American, I wanted to sue somebody. But like a good librarian, I just sat at my desk and waited. #Quote by Rebecca Makkai
Librarian quotes by Brandon Sanderson
#195. At this point, perhaps you Hushlanders are beginning to doubt the truth of this narrative. You have seen several odd and inexplicable things happen. (Though, just as a warning, the story so far has actually been quite tame. Just wait until we get to the part with the talking dinosaurs.) Some readers might even think that I'm just making this story up. You might think that everything in this book is dreamy silliness.

This book is serious. Terribly serious. Your skepticism results from a lifetime of training in the Librarians' school system, where you were taught all kinds of lies. Indeed, you'd probably never even heard of the Smedrys, despite the fact that they are the most famous family of Oculators in the entire world. In most parts of the Free Kingdoms, being a Smedry is considered equivalent to being nobility.

(If you wish to perform a fun test, next time you are in history class, ask your teacher about the Smedrys. If your teacher is a Librarian spy, he or she will get red-faced and give you a detention. If, on the other hand, your teacher is innocent, he or she will simply be confused, then likely give you a detention.) #Quote by Brandon Sanderson
Librarian quotes by Umberto Eco
#196. So in the library there are also books containing falsehoods. ..."

"Monsters exist because they are part of the divine plan, and in the horrible features of those same monsters the power of the Creator is revealed. And by divine plan, too, there exist also books by wizards, the cabalas of the Jews, the fables of pagan poets, the lies of the infidels. It was the firm and holy conviction of those who founded the abbey and sustained it over the centuries that even in books of falsehood, to the eyes of the sage reader, a pale reflection of the divine wisdom can shine. And therefore the library is a vessel of these, too. But for this very reason, you understand, it cannot be visited by just anyone. And furthermore," the abbot added, as if to apologize for the weakness of this last argument, "a book is a fragile creature, it suffers the wear of time, it fears rodents, the elements, clumsy hands. If for a hundred and a hundred years everyone had been able freely to handle our codices, the majority of them would no longer exist. So the librarian protects them not only against mankind but also against nature, and devotes his life to this war with the forces of oblivion, the enemy of truth. #Quote by Umberto Eco
Librarian quotes by Daniel J. Boorstin
#197. A wonderful thing about a book, in contrast to a computer screen, is that you can take it to bed with you. #Quote by Daniel J. Boorstin
Librarian quotes by S.R. Ranganathan
#198. If you want to be a reference librarian, you must learn to overcome not only your shyness but also the shyness of others! #Quote by S.R. Ranganathan
Librarian quotes by Lucia St. Clair Robson
#199. As a librarian I learned one of life's great truths: you don't have to know all the answers, you just have to know where to find them. #Quote by Lucia St. Clair Robson
Librarian quotes by Judith Krug
#200. Material that might be illegal is such a minuscule part of what is available that we have to remember and I mean not only librarians but everybody has to remember not to let it overshadow the incredible wealth of information that is available in this medium. #Quote by Judith Krug
