Library Books quotes by Eilis O'Neal
#1. How can you be nervous? Don't you see? We're in a library. #Quote by Eilis O'Neal
Library Books quotes by Tracey Lindberg
#2. She was sorry to have left her room. She looked at the pile of library books on her floor [...] and felt better. #Quote by Tracey Lindberg
Library Books quotes by Amos Bronson Alcott
#3. One cannot celebrate books sufficiently. After saying his best, still something better remains to be spoken in their praise. As with friends, one finds new beauties at every interview, and would stay long in the presence of those choice companions. As with friends, he may dispense with a wide acquaintance. Few and choice. The richest minds need not large libraries. #Quote by Amos Bronson Alcott
Library Books quotes by Sherman Alexie
#4. Corliss had never once considered the fate of library books. She'd never wondered how many books go unread. She loved books. How could she not worry about the unread? She felt like a disorganized scholar, an inconsiderate lover, an abusive mother, and a cowardly soldier. #Quote by Sherman Alexie
Library Books quotes by Eudora Welty
#5. I read library books as fast as I could go, rushing them home in the basket of my bicycle. From the minute I reached our house, I started to read. Every book I seized on, from "Bunny Brown and His Sister Sue at Camp Rest-a-While" to "Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea," stood for the devouring wish to read being instantly granted. I knew this was bliss, knew it at the time. Taste isn't nearly so important; it comes in its own time. #Quote by Eudora Welty
Library Books quotes by Thomas Jefferson
#6. All that is necessary for a student is access to a library. #Quote by Thomas Jefferson
Library Books quotes by Nora Roberts
#7. Planting a flower's like opening a book, because either way you're starting something. And your garden's your library. #Quote by Nora Roberts
Library Books quotes by Michel Foucault
#8. The imaginary is not formed in opposition to reality as its denial or compensation; it grows among signs, from book to book, in the interstice of repetitions and commentaries; it is born and takes shape in the interval between books. It is the phenomena of the library. #Quote by Michel Foucault
Library Books quotes by Betty MacDonald
#9. Miss Appleby, her library books, and her story-telling sessions were very popular with all the children in Heavenly Valley. To Nancy and Plum they were a magic carpet that whisked them out of the dreariness and drudgery of their lives at Mrs. Monday's and transported them to palaces in India, canals in Holland, pioneer stockades during the Indian wars, cattle ranches in the West, mountains in Switzerland, pagodas in China, igloos in Alaska, jungles in Africa, castles in England, slums in London, gardens in Japan, or most important of all, into happy homes where there were mothers and fathers and no Mrs. Mondays or Marybelles. #Quote by Betty MacDonald
Library Books quotes by Stephen King
#10. He wandered off into the stacks, pulling a book here and there, looking at it, putting it back. Choosing books was serious business. You had to be careful. If you were a grownup you could have as many as you wanted, but kids could only take out three at a time. If you picked a dud, you were stuck with it. #Quote by Stephen King
Library Books quotes by Laura Lippman
#11. There's a serendipity to real life that the Internet can't duplicate. Do you use the library? For anything? Well, sometimes you end up picking up the book next to the one you were looking for, and it's that book that changes your life. #Quote by Laura Lippman
Library Books quotes by Sarah Holman
#12. After all, she understood people so well, as well as Fredrick understood his library. #Quote by Sarah Holman
Library Books quotes by Dan Chaon
#13. 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
Library Books quotes by John Green
#14. This is unbearable ... God. These books she'll never read. Her Life's Library. #Quote by John Green
Library Books quotes by Mark Foley
#15. I have said repeatedly that in this country we track library books better than we do sex offenders. #Quote by Mark Foley
Library Books quotes by Emery Allen
#16. There's so much more to life than finding someone who will want you, or being sad over someone who doesn't. There's a lot of wonderful time to be spent discovering yourself without hoping someone will fall in love with you along the way, and it doesn't need to be painful or empty. You need to fill yourself up with love. Not anyone else. Become a whole being on your own. Go on adventures, fall asleep in the woods with friends, wander around the city at night, sit in a coffee shop on your own, write on bathroom stalls, leave notes in library books, dress up for yourself, give to others, smile a lot. Do all things with love, but don't romanticize life like you can't survive without it. Live for yourself and be happy on your own. It isn't any less beautiful, I promise. #Quote by Emery Allen
Library Books quotes by The Doctor
#17. You want weapons? We're in a library! Books! The best weapons in the world! #Quote by The Doctor
Library Books quotes by A.S. Byatt
#18. 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
Library Books quotes by Jill Paton Walsh
#19. Harriet said, "You shouldn't have reminded me to sign that book, Peter."
"Why ever not? Have you suddenly become bashful about your hard-earned glories?"
"Because it watn's hers," said Harriet. "It was a library copy."
"Stroke of luck for the ratepaers of the City of Westminster," he said, grinning. #Quote by Jill Paton Walsh
Library Books quotes by Kate Zambreno
#20. I wake up and read although Nietzsche says that's foolish. A sort of narcotic, reading. I read with my hands down the front of my pants - my mode of reading is masturbatory. Sometimes I feel guilty about my lubed fingers all over library books. #Quote by Kate Zambreno
Library Books quotes by Scott Douglas
#21. When I tell people I went to library school, the most common reaction is either "You're joking, right?" or "They have schools for librarians? Do they teach you how to properly sssh people? #Quote by Scott Douglas
Library Books quotes by Emery Allen
#22. Fill yourself up with love. Become a whole being on your own.
Go on adventures, fall asleep in the woods with friends, wander around the city at night, sit in a coffee shop on your own, write on bathroom stalls, leave notes in library books, dress up for yourself, give to others, smile a lot.
Live for yourself and be happy on your own. #Quote by Emery Allen
Library Books quotes by Laurie Halse Anderson
#23. This girl shivers and crawls under the covers with all her clothes on and falls into an overdue library book, a faerie story with rats and marrow and burning curses. The sentences build a fence around her, a Times Roman 10-point barricade, to keep the thorny voices in her head from getting too close. #Quote by Laurie Halse Anderson
Library Books quotes by Alice Hoffman
#24. From the time I could read, I found solace in my father's library...At the ages of ten and eleven and twelve I would have preferred to remain in the library... #Quote by Alice Hoffman
Library Books quotes by Lev Grossman
#25. The year after I graduated college I had a job in a library. When people underlined passages in the library books, or made notes in the margins, the books were sent to me. I erased the lines and the notes. Yes, that was my job. #Quote by Lev Grossman
Library Books quotes by Cassandra Clare
#26. I'm not an angel, Jace," she repeated. "I don't return library books. I steal illegal music off the internet. I lie to my mom. I am completely ordinary. #Quote by Cassandra Clare
Library Books quotes by Saul Bellow
#27. People can lose their lives in libraries. They ought to be warned. #Quote by Saul Bellow
Library Books quotes by Lauren Willig
#28. Things turn up in strange places all the time. For example library books, which possess a disconcerting ability to move from place to place, seemingly of their own volition. #Quote by Lauren Willig
Library Books quotes by Michelle Cooper
#29. Do you know what it is?' [Toby] said thoughtfully. 'It's that they haven't had anything really awful happen to them. No wonder they seem so superficial and unfeeling.'
It was certainly an interesting theory, ... [but] surely one didn't need to have suffered in order to possess empathy for those who had? All it required was a bit of imagination and a well-stocked library. #Quote by Michelle Cooper
Library Books quotes by L.R. Knost
#30. Some say they get lost in books, but I find myself, again and again, in the pages of a good book. Humanly speaking, there is no greater teacher, no greater therapist, no greater healer of the soul, than a well-stocked library. #Quote by L.R. Knost
Library Books quotes by Scott Douglas
#31. 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
Library Books quotes by Nora Roberts
#32. The room was a compact, informal library. Books stood or were stacked on the shelves that ran along two walls from floor to ceiling, sat on the tables like knickknacks, trooped around the room like soldiers. They struck Malory as more than knowledge or entertainment, even more than stories or information. They were colour and texture, in a haphazard yet somehow intricate decorating scheme.
The short leg of the L-shaped room boasted still more books, as well as a small table that held the remains of Dana's breakfast.
With her hands on her hips, Dana watched Malory's perusal of her space. She'd seen the reaction before. 'No I haven't read them all, but I will.And no I don't know how many I have. Want coffee?'
Let me just ask this. Do you ever actually use the services of the library?'
Sure, but I need to own them. If I don't have twenty or thirty books right here, waiting to be read, I start jonesing. That's my compulsion. #Quote by Nora Roberts
Library Books quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#33. I love to go the library to borrow books. But I also enjoyed buying books to create my sacred library. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
Library Books quotes by Mark Jason Dominus
#34. I know exactly what I would do with immortality: I would read every book in the library. #Quote by Mark Jason Dominus
Library Books quotes by Kevin Brockmeier
#35. Occasionally, in the stillness of a taxi or an airplane, she would catalog the pleasures she had lost. Cigarettes. Chewing gum. Strong mint toothpaste. Any food with hard edges or sharp corners that could pierce or abrade the inside of her mouth: potato chips, croutons, crunchy peanut butter. Any food that was more than infinitesimally, protozoically, spicy or tangy or salty or acidic: pesto or Worcestershire sauce, wasabi or anchovies, tomato juice or movie-theater popcorn. Certain pamphlets and magazines whose paper carried a caustic wafting chemical scent she could taste as she turned the pages. Perfume. Incense. Library books. Long hours of easy conversation. The ability to lick an envelope without worrying that the glue had irritated her mouth. The knowledge that if she heard a song she liked, she could sing along to it in all her dreadful jubilant tunelessness. The faith that if she bit her tongue, she would soon feel better rather than worse. #Quote by Kevin Brockmeier
Library Books quotes by Jorge Luis Borges
#36. Paradise will be a kind of library #Quote by Jorge Luis Borges
Library Books quotes by Sarah Rees Brennan
#37. I have all my books with me, obviously, and several library books," Elliot answered. "What if I wished to consult a book and did not have the relevant volume on hand? Think about it. #Quote by Sarah Rees Brennan
Library Books quotes by Elizabeth McCracken
#38. There were a lot of things I loved about working in a library, but mostly I miss the library patrons. I love books, but books are everywhere. Library patrons are as various and oddball and democratic as library books. #Quote by Elizabeth McCracken
Library Books quotes by Sara Sheridan
#40. They should be taking bonuses from bankers, not library books from schoolchildren. What kind of society are we building? #Quote by Sara Sheridan
Library Books quotes by Alyxandra Harvey
#41. You have got to stop writing in the library books," Tyson said.
"I will if you stop looking at me like I just kicked a kitten," I replied, sliding the offending book away from him. "I couldn't help it. Someone needs to edit these things."
He sat back in the library chair. "Yeah, they're called editors and they already did that."
I snorted. "Please. I could drive a truck through the holes in your education."
"We're here about your education, not mine." He actually lowered his forehead to bang it on the table. The librarian sent me a stern glance.
"What?" I said. "I'm not the one giving myself a lobotomy. #Quote by Alyxandra Harvey
Library Books quotes by Neela Vaswani
#42. I like that library books have secret lives. All those hands that have held them. All those eyes that have read them. #Quote by Neela Vaswani
Library Books quotes by Clare Boothe Luce
#43. Censorship, like charity, should begin at home; but unlike charity, it should end there. #Quote by Clare Boothe Luce
Library Books quotes by Anurag Shourie
#44. For me, every book is an individual with its own identity and has to be nurtured and taken care
of, so that it may survive for a longer period. #Quote by Anurag Shourie
Library Books quotes by Jane Austen
#45. I declare after all there is no enjoyment like reading! How much sooner one tires of any thing than of a book!
When I have a house of my own, I shall be miserable if I have not an excellent library. #Quote by Jane Austen
Library Books quotes by William Gaddis
#46. -And there's this twelve thousand dollars item for books.
-That supposed to be twelve hundred, the twelve thousand is for paper.
towels. Besides there is already that bequest for the library.
-Did it say books in so many words? No. It's just a bequest for the library.
-Use it for pegboard. You need pegboard in a library. Books you don't know what you're getting into. #Quote by William Gaddis
Library Books quotes by Jorge Luis Borges
#47. I had always thought of Paradise / In form and image as a library. #Quote by Jorge Luis Borges
Library Books quotes by Rochelle Distelheim

To be an Artist you need talent, as well as a wife
who washes the socks and the children,
and returns phone calls and library books and types.
In other words, the reason there are so many more
Men Geniuses than Women Geniuses is not Genius.
It is because Hemingway never joined the P.T.A.
And Arthur Rubinstein ignored Halloween.
Do you think Portnoy's creator sits through children's theater
matinees--on Saturdays?
Or that Norman Mailer faced 'driver's ed' failure,
chicken pox or chipped teeth?
Fitzgerald's night was so tender because the fender
his teen-ager dented happened when Papa was at a story conference.
Since Picasso does the painting, Mrs. Picasso did the toilet training.
And if Saul Bellow, National Book Award winner, invited thirty-three
for Thanksgiving Day dinner, I'll bet he had help.
I'm sure Henry Moore was never a Cub Scout leader,
and Leonard Bernstein never instructed a tricycler
On becoming a bicycler just before he conducted.
Tell me again my anatomy is not necessarily my destiny,
tell me my hang-up is a personal and not a universal quandary,
and I'll tell you no muse is a good muse
unless she also helps with the laundry. #Quote by Rochelle Distelheim
Library Books quotes by Shirley Jackson
#49. The last time I glanced at the library books on the kitchen shelf they were more than five months overdue, and I wondered whether I would have chosen differently if I had known that these were the last books, the ones which would stand forever on our kitchen shelf. #Quote by Shirley Jackson
Library Books quotes by Sandra Cisneros
#50. One of the things we learned from that panel is the way poor communities use a library is very different from wealthy communities. But the way the library books are measured are by how many books are taken out. And people in poor communities sometimes won't take the book out because they're afraid to. They're afraid of losing it and not being able to replace it. #Quote by Sandra Cisneros
Library Books quotes by Joy Williams
#51. Mornings, out in the garden, she would, at times, read aloud from one of her many overdue library books. Dew as radiant as angel spit glittered on the petals of Jack's roses. Jack was quite the gardener. Miriam thought she knew why her particularly favored roses. The inside of a rose does not at all correspond with its exterior beauty. If one tears off all the petals of the corolla, all that remains is a sordid-looking tuft. Roses would be right up Jack's alley, all right.
"Here's something for you, Jack," Miriam said. You'll appreciate this. Beckett describes tears as 'liquified brain.'
"God, Miriam," Jack said. "Why are you sharing that with me? Look at this day, it's a beautiful day! Stop pumping out the cesspit! Leave the cesspit alone! #Quote by Joy Williams
Library Books quotes by J.K. Rowling
#52. And once we get hold of it, how do you destroy a Horcrux?" asked Ron.
"Well," said Hermione, "I've been researching that."
"How?" asked Harry. "I didn't think there were any books on Horcruxes in the library?"
"There weren't," said Hermione, who had turned pink. "Dumbledore removed them all, but he--he didn't destroy them."
Ron sat up straight, wide-eyed.
"How in the name of Merlin's pants have you managed to get your hands on those Horcrux books?"
"It--it wasn't stealing!" said Hermione, looking from Harry to Ron with a kind of desperation. "They were still library books, even if Dumbledore had taken them off the shelves. Anyway, if he really didn't want anyone to get at them, I'm sure he would have made it much harder to--"
"Get to the point!" said Ron.
"Well…it was easy," said Hermione in a small voice. "I just did a Summoning Charm. You know--Accio. And--they zoomed out of Dumbledore's study window right into the girls' dormitory."
"But when did you do this?" Harry asked, regarding Hermione with a mixture of admiration and incredulity.
"Just after his--Dumbledore's--funeral," said Hermione in an even smaller voice. "Right after we agreed we'd leave school and go and look for the Horcruxes. When I went back upstairs to get my things it--it just occurred to me that the more we knew about them, the better it would be…and I was alone in there…so I tried…and it worked. They flew straight in through the open window and I--I pack #Quote by J.K. Rowling
Library Books quotes by Jack  Cavanaugh
#53. Libraries are medieval forests masking opportunity and danger; every aisle is a path, every catalog reference a clue to the location of the Holy Grail. It is here that I become privy to the sacred songs of kings and the ballads of rogues. Here are tales of life-and-death struggles of other wayfarers as they battle personal dragons and woo fair maidens. Walking down this hallway, I am a knight entering the forest in search of the truth... #Quote by Jack Cavanaugh
Library Books quotes by Sergey Brin
#54. But the vast majority of books ever written are not accessible to anyone except the most tenacious researchers at premier academic libraries. Books written after 1923 quickly disappear into a literary black hole. #Quote by Sergey Brin
Library Books quotes by Jean Fritz
#55. When I discovered libraries, it was like having Christmas every day. #Quote by Jean Fritz
Library Books quotes by Avijeet Das
#56. And I could read you far easily than I could the books in the library. #Quote by Avijeet Das
Library Books quotes by Scott Douglas
#57. It took a bit of popcorn and a library snack bar to make me realize that being a librarian was about more than just giving people information. It was about serving a community. And if the community is hungry for more than just knowledge, then maybe it's about time to open a snack bar. #Quote by Scott Douglas
Library Books quotes by Barbara Kingsolver
#58. But nothing on this earth is guaranteed, when you get right down to it, you know ? I've been thinking about that. About how your kids aren't really YOURS, they're just these people that you try to keep an eye on, and hope you'll all grow up someday to like each other and still be in one piece. What I mean is, everything you get is really just on loan. Does that make sense?"
Sure,"I said. "Like library books. Sooner or later they've all got to go back into the nightdrop. #Quote by Barbara Kingsolver
Library Books quotes by Martijn Benders
#59. Mr Rutger cornet de Groot. Never read any American poetry or any other foreign poetry, which is why he always mentions 2 poets as a reffering point, either Lucebert or Tonnus Oosterhoff. The guy started reading when he was 48 years old with a few library books and was turned instantly in one of the most important critics hired by the fund of literature. Oh well. #Quote by Martijn Benders
Library Books quotes by Ann Brashares
#60. Love made you admire funny things about a person, like how good she was at remembering to return her library books and at slicing cucumbers very thin. She was a veritable wonder at pulling a splinter out of her foot. #Quote by Ann Brashares
Library Books quotes by Scott Douglas
#61. We don't have to destroy the library of the past. We just need to give it a face-lift. #Quote by Scott Douglas
Library Books quotes by J.K. Rowling
#62. What are you doing with all those books anyway?" Ron asked.
Just trying to decide which ones to take with us," said Hermione. When we're looking for the Horcruxes."
Oh, of course," said Ron, clapping a hand to his forehead. "I forgot we'll be hunting down Voldemort in a mobile library. #Quote by J.K. Rowling
Library Books quotes by Shmuel Niger
#63. A good library is a place, a palace where the lofty spirits of all nations and generations meet. #Quote by Shmuel Niger
Library Books quotes by Chesley B. Sullenberger, III
#64. On January 15, I was traveling with four library books, including a copy of Just Culture, a book about safety issues. I later called my local library to apologize for leaving the books on the plane, and they agreed not to charge me for replacing them. #Quote by Chesley B. Sullenberger, III
Library Books quotes by Jules Verne
#65. In the meantime, there is not an hour to lose. I am about to visit the public library. #Quote by Jules Verne
Library Books quotes by Jorge Luis Borges
#66. I have always imagined that Paradise will be a kind of library. #Quote by Jorge Luis Borges
Library Books quotes by Adriana Trigiani
#67. I loved to read, still do, and it seemed that the writing was a result of the love of books and reading and libraries. #Quote by Adriana Trigiani
Library Books quotes by Flannery O'Connor
#68. My mamma and I have interesting literary discussions like the following which took place over some Modern Library books that I had just ordered:
SHE: "Mobby Dick. I've always heard about that."
ME: "Mow-by Dick."
SHE: "Mow-by Dick. The Idiot. You would get something called Idiot. What's it about?"
ME: "An idiot. #Quote by Flannery O'Connor
Library Books quotes by Willard Scott
#69. Librarians have always been among the most thoughtful and helpful people. They are teachers without a classroom. No libraries, no progress. #Quote by Willard Scott

Library Books quotes by Niall Williams
#71. When my father first took me to Ennis Library I went down among the shelves and felt company, not only the company of writers, but the readers too, because they had lifted and opened and read these books. The books were worn in a way they can only get worn by hands and eyes and minds #Quote by Niall Williams
Library Books quotes by Howard Rheingold
#72. Unlike with the majority of library books, when you enter a term into a search engine there is no guarantee that what you will find is authoritative, accurate or even vaguely true. #Quote by Howard Rheingold
Library Books quotes by Joan Collins
#73. Dynasty was the opportunity to take charge of my career rather than waiting around like a library book waiting to be loaned out. #Quote by Joan Collins
Library Books quotes by Laura Whitcomb
#74. He kissed me for a long moment, holding my shoulders, perhaps to keep me from pressing my whole body against his. Then he tried to lift my bag.
"My God," he said. "What happened?"
"I found out one may check out twenty books at a time from the school library. #Quote by Laura Whitcomb
Library Books quotes by Anne Lamott
#75. ...[M]ost of us have figured out that we have to do what's in front of us and keep doing it. We clean up beaches after oil spills. We rebuild whole towns after hurricanes and tornadoes. We return calls and library books. We get people water. Some of us even pray. Every time we choose the good action or response, the decent, the valuable, it builds, incrementally, to renewal, resurrection, the place of newness, freedom, justice. The equation is: life, death, resurrection, hope. The horror is real, and so you make casseroles for your neighbor, organize an overseas clothing drive, and do your laundry. You can also offer to do other people's laundry if they have recently had any random babies or surgeries.
We live stitch by stitch, when we're lucky. If you fixate on the big picture, the whole shebang, the overview, you miss the stitching. And maybe the stitching is crude, or it is unraveling, but if it were precise, we'd pretend that life was just fine and running like a Swiss watch. That's not helpful if on the inside our understanding is that life is more often a cuckoo clock with rusty gears. #Quote by Anne Lamott
Library Books quotes by Kiersten White
#76. I wanted more time with the books. I wanted to spend the day in a quiet corner, sitting against a window, lost in words and worlds I had never been given access to. #Quote by Kiersten White
Library Books quotes by Diane Setterfield
#77. What better place to kill time than a library? #Quote by Diane Setterfield
Library Books quotes by Kurt Vonnegut
#78. And on the subject of burning books: I want to congratulate librarians, not famous for their physical strength or their powerful political connections or their great wealth, who, all over this country, have staunchly resisted anti-democratic bullies who have tried to remove certain books from their shelves, and have refused to reveal to thought police the names of persons who have checked out those titles.
So the America I loved still exists, if not in the White House or the Supreme Court or the Senate or the House of Representatives or the media. The America I love still exists at the front desks of our public libraries. #Quote by Kurt Vonnegut
Library Books quotes by Alpha Four
#79. Books are magical keys to open up worlds and change perspectives. #Quote by Alpha Four
Library Books quotes by Helene Hanff
#80. You leave me sitting here writing long margin notes in library books that don't belong to me, some day they'll find out i did it and take my library card away. #Quote by Helene Hanff
Library Books quotes by Margaret Atwood
#81. Some cleric putting a match to her. /Neither of them looks happy about it. /Once lit, she'll burn like a book, /like a book that was ever finished, /like a locked-up library. #Quote by Margaret Atwood
Library Books quotes by Elizabeth McCracken
#82. Library books were, I suddenly realized, promiscuous, ready to lie down in the arms of anyone who asked. Not like bookstore books, which married their purchasers, or were brokered for marriages to others. #Quote by Elizabeth McCracken
Library Books quotes by Beverly Cleary
#83. Mother, what am I going to do?' Beezus demanded. 'It's checked out on my card and I'm responsible. They won't let me take any more books out of the library, and I won't have anything to read, and it will all be Ramona's fault. She's always spoiling my fun and it isn't fair!' Beezus didn't know what she would do without her library card. She couldn't get along without library books. She just couldn't, that was all. #Quote by Beverly Cleary
Library Books quotes by Helene Hanff
#84. I despair of ever getting it through anybody's head I am not interested in bookshops, I am interested in what's written in the books. I don't browse in bookshops, I browse in libraries, where you can take a book home and read it, and if you like it you go to a bookshop and buy it. #Quote by Helene Hanff
Library Books quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#85. In a library we are surrounded by many hundreds of dear friends imprisoned by an enchanter in paper and leathern boxes. #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Library Books quotes by Holly Black
#86. Poppy used to share the room with her older sister, and piles of he sister's outgrown clothes still remained spread out in drifts, along with a collection of used makeup and notebooks covered in stickers and scrawled with lyrics. A jumbled of her sister's old Barbies were on top of a bookshelf, waiting for Poppy to try and fix their melted arms and chopped hair. The bookshelves were overflowing with fantasy paperbacks and overdue library books, some of them on Greek myths, some on mermaids, and a few on local hauntings. The walls were covered in posters-Doctor Who, a cat in a bowler hat, and a giant map of Narnia. #Quote by Holly Black
Library Books quotes by Melanie Kirk
#87. Want to inspire your kids to read more? Try giving them kids some money to spend just on a book. Take them to a bookstore and let them browse and pick out one book that they will love. Or try going to a local library for a few hours and just let your kids sift through books that interest them. #Quote by Melanie Kirk
Library Books quotes by Lisa Kleypas
#88. I have always been an obsessive reader - I remember going back and forth to the local library with stacks of books taller than I was. #Quote by Lisa Kleypas

Library Books quotes by Italo Calvino
#94. She's there every day,' the writer says. 'Every time I'm about to sit down at my desk I feel the need to look at her. Who knows what she's reading? I know it isn't a book of mine, and instinctively I suffer at the thought, I feel the jealousy of my books, which would like to be read the way she reads. I never tire of watching her: she seems to live in a sphere suspended in another time and another space. #Quote by Italo Calvino
Library Books quotes by Alison Cooklin
#95. Lava oozed up from the centre of the crater like blood from a wound. As the flaming lava touched the water it hissed and groaned. She feared she would be boiled alive. #Quote by Alison Cooklin

Library Books quotes by Timothy Mauson

Library Books quotes by H.P. Lovecraft
#100. I have dwelt ever in realms apart from the visible world; spending my youth and adolescence in ancient and little-known books, and in roaming the fields and groves of the region near my ancestral home. I do not think that what I read in these books or saw in these fields and groves was exactly what other boys read and saw there; but of this I must say little, since detailed speech would but confirm those cruel slanders upon my intellect which I sometimes overhear from the whispers of the stealthy attendants around me. #Quote by H.P. Lovecraft
Library Books quotes by Bill Maher
#101. New Rule: I don't give two fingleberries and a McShit-all that Dumbledore is gay. I never wanted to know who Dumbledore was in the first place. Let alone his sexuality. What concerns me is adults who read 800-page books about magic schoolboys ... and then try to talk to me about it. If I had the slightest interest in homosexuals with powers, I'd be a Republican. #Quote by Bill Maher
Library Books quotes by Marie Rutkoski
#102. I was so in love with books from as early as I remember that it seemed a natural step to want to create them. And so I just wanted to be a writer from a very young age. And I think that the lies were just a natural side effect of me wanting to tell stories and write them down. #Quote by Marie Rutkoski
Library Books quotes by Douglas L. Callister
#103. If we know the books located at the bedside, we know much about the man. #Quote by Douglas L. Callister
Library Books quotes by Eudora Welty
#104. I wanted to read immediately. The only fear was that of books coming to an end. #Quote by Eudora Welty
Library Books quotes by Steve Aylett
#105. In books there's nothing of the fish covered in the coldness of the sea, or the feeling of a star touching space. Bad for business. #Quote by Steve Aylett
Library Books quotes by Jiddu Krishnamurti
#106. Love implies great freedom - not to do what you like. But love comes only when the mind is very quiet, disinterested, not self-centered. These are not ideals. If you have no love, do what you will - go after all the gods on earth, do all the social activities, try to reform the poor, the politics, write books, write poems - you are a dead human being. And without love your problems will increase, multiply endlessly. And with love, do what you will, there is no risk; there is no conflict. Then love is the essence of virtue. And a mind that is not in a state of love is not a religious mind at all. And it is only the religious mind that is freed from problems, and that knows the beauty of love and truth. #Quote by Jiddu Krishnamurti
Library Books quotes by Tessa Dare
#107. Dedication: For librarians and booksellers everywhere, who gather books and build shelters for tender souls. #Quote by Tessa Dare
Library Books quotes by Ta-Nehisi Coates
#108. It meant something to see people who looked like me in comic books. It was this beautiful place that I felt pop culture should look like. #Quote by Ta-Nehisi Coates
Library Books quotes by Scott Hildreth
#109. I read a book once - about love that was developed and love that just is," I paused. "And when I read the part about love that just is I scoffed. I knew better. I knew that it was merely words written by some shallow man that wanted to say what he had to say. And then I met you. And I now, Kelli, know what it is that books are written about. I know what people write poems about, I know what it feels like to know, and I do mean know what it feels like to be certain that someone loves you unconditionally. Love that just is, #Quote by Scott Hildreth
Library Books quotes by John H Richardson
#110. I was incredibly depressed and I found myself avoiding doing interviews where my [20-something daughters] could hear me - or leaving books on the coffee table they could see. #Quote by John H Richardson
Library Books quotes by Sue Monk Kidd
#111. The most significant gifts are the ones most easily overlooked. Small, everyday blessings: woods, health, music, laughter, memories, books, family, friends, second chances, warm fireplaces, and all the footprints scattered throughout our days. #Quote by Sue Monk Kidd
Library Books quotes by Will Smith
#112. Too many people are buying things they can't afford, with money that they don't have ... to impress people that they don't like!"
Nothing to do w/ "books"
Just like the quote! #Quote by Will Smith
Library Books quotes by Bertrand Russell
#113. A good social system is not to be secured by making people unselfish, but, by making their own vital impulses fit in with other peoples. This is feasible. Those who have produced stoic philosophies have all had enough to eat and drink.

I feel I shall find the truth on my deathbed and be surrounded by people too stupid to understand - fussing about medicines instead of searching for wisdom.

I hate being all tidy like a book in a library where nobody reads – prison is horribly like that. #Quote by Bertrand Russell
Library Books quotes by William Graham Sumner
#114. We live in a war of two antagonistic ethical philosophies, the ethical policy taught in the books and schools, and the success policy. #Quote by William Graham Sumner
Library Books quotes by Stephen Kinzer
#115. Muslim leaders ordered it cut to pieces to show their contempt for worldly wealth. They destroyed countless treasures, including the entire royal library. In an account of this conquest written by the tenth-century Persian poet Ferdowsi, a general laments: "Curse this world, curse this time, curse this fate / That uncivilized Arabs have come to force me to be Muslim. #Quote by Stephen Kinzer
Library Books quotes by A C Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada
#116. Books are the basis; purity is the force; preaching is the essence; utility is the principle. #Quote by A C Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada
Library Books quotes by Robert Aris Willmott
#117. Books, of which the principles are diseased or deformed, must be kept on the shelf of the scholar, as the man of science preserves monsters in glasses. They belong to the study of the mind's morbid anatomy, and ought to be accurately labelled. Voltaire will still be a wit, notwithstanding he is a scoffer; and we may admire the brilliant spots and eyes of the viper, if we acknowledge its venom and call it a reptile. #Quote by Robert Aris Willmott
Library Books quotes by Aberjhani
#118. With intent to neither idolize nor demonize the man [Barack Obama], it seems fair and evident enough to say that the current president of America is not a leader whose way is that of violent public outbursts. It appears to be more that of a warrior-philosopher who practices the art of political persuasion by authoring acclaimed books, delivering well-crafted speeches, assembling unified coalitions, passing historic legislation, signing well-aimed executive orders, and cultivating a poised but accessible demeanor. #Quote by Aberjhani
Library Books quotes by James Sallis
#119. In my junior year I discovered books. . . . Devoured [them] the way other kids did candy or sandwiches, spent days hunched over . . . my spine an oversized question mark. #Quote by James Sallis
Library Books quotes by Lynn Miles
#120. You can read a lot of books
It don't make you smart
Kiss a lot of fools
Don't mean you've got a heart #Quote by Lynn Miles
Library Books quotes by Suzy Davies
#121. The Art of Writing for Children is the knowledge of what is significant to them #Quote by Suzy Davies
Library Books quotes by Haidy Santos
#122. I have always been passionate about travelling. Credits to the books for they were invented. If not, I might not be able to reach my dream. #Quote by Haidy Santos
Library Books quotes by Georg Christoph Lichtenberg
#123. A book is a mirror: if an ape looks into it an apostle is hardly likely to look out. #Quote by Georg Christoph Lichtenberg
Library Books quotes by Bryan Fuller
#124. What was always interesting about Thomas Harris' books is they were a wonderful hybridization of a crime thriller and a horror movie. #Quote by Bryan Fuller
Library Books quotes by Alexander McCall Smith
#125. Writers just play out their fantasies in their books. They are often very unstable, tricky people, Bertie. Writers are usually very bad at real life and feel that they have to create imaginary lives to make up for it. #Quote by Alexander McCall Smith
Library Books quotes by Craig Thompson
#126. Foreign-language books are sometimes more beautiful when you can't tell what's being said. It's like you ruin it by reading. #Quote by Craig Thompson
Library Books quotes by Joseph Gordon-Levitt
#127. I do feel that even though I didn't grow up being a big sci-fi fan or comic books or superhero fan, I felt myself definitely gravitate towards these movies that have a high concept and yet they're giving you a moral dilemma within that. #Quote by Joseph Gordon-Levitt
Library Books quotes by Haruki Murakami
#128. Ever since I was little my mother had told me, if you don't know something, go to the library and look it up. #Quote by Haruki Murakami
Library Books quotes by Brian Andreas
#129. I've read a lot of books, so I know bunches of stuff that sounds like it could be true. #Quote by Brian Andreas
Library Books quotes by Richard L. Brandt
#130. In 1994, the average person spent $79 on books as compared to $56 on recorded music. #Quote by Richard L. Brandt
Library Books quotes by Neil Gaiman
#131. Richard put away the Narnia books, convinced, sadly, that they were an allegory; that an author (whom he had trusted) had been attempting to slip something past him. He had had the same disgust with the Professor Challenger stories, when the bull-necked old professor became a convert to Spiritualistm; it was not that Richard had any problems believing in ghosts - Richard believed, with no problems or contradictions, in everything - but Conan Doyle was preaching, and it showed through the words. Richard was young, and innoncent in his fashion, and believed that authors should be trusted, and that there should be nothing hidden beneath the surface of a story. #Quote by Neil Gaiman
Library Books quotes by David Schweikert
#132. One day I was in Starbucks going through one of my books on accounting, and this beautiful young woman came up to me and said, 'My accounting book is different from yours.' Her name was Joyce, she had a background in finance and administration and ran a surgery center. Within a short time, we were married. #Quote by David Schweikert
Library Books quotes by Samantha Shannon
#133. I was always more interested in my books and my writing than going out. It's OK to say I'm a nerd. That's me. #Quote by Samantha Shannon
Library Books quotes by Luke Rhinehart
#134. I shared my office on 57th Street with Dr Jacob Ecstein, young (thirty-three), dynamic (two books published), intelligent (he and I usually agreed), personable (everyone liked him), unattractive (no one loved him), anal (he plays the stock market compulsively), oral (he smokes heavily), non-genital (doesn't seem to notice women), and Jewish (he knows two Yiddish slang words). Our mutual secretary was a Miss Reingold. Mary Jane Reingold, old (thirty-six), undynamic (she worked for us), unintelligent (she prefers Ecstein to me), personable (everyone felt sorry for her), unattractive (tall, skinny, glasses, no one loved her), anal (obsessively neat), oral (always eating), genital (trying hard), and non-Jewish (finds use of two Yiddish slang words very intellectual). Miss Reingold greeted me efficiently. #Quote by Luke Rhinehart
