Library quotes by Susan Orlean
#1. Every problem that society has, the library has, too, because the boundary between society and the library is porous; nothing good is kept out of the library, and nothing bad. #Quote by Susan Orlean
Library quotes by Roberta Gellis
#2. Libraries shelter the spirit, provide food for the mind, and answer the questions raised by the problems of life. They have been the home of my heart since I was a very young child, in whatever place I happened to live. #Quote by Roberta Gellis
Library quotes by Antonio Iturbe
#3. But those who believe that flowers grow in vases don't understand anything about literature. The library has now become her first-aid kit, and she's going to give the children a little of the medicine that helped her recover her smile when she thought she'd lost it forever. #Quote by Antonio Iturbe
Library quotes by Elena Ferrante
#4. But I was bored, I could scarcely understand them. I started to borrow novels from the circulating library, and read one after the other. But in the long run they didn't help. They presented intense lives, profound conversations, a phantom reality more appealing than my real life. So, in order to feel as if I were not real, I sometimes went ... #Quote by Elena Ferrante
Library quotes by Leigh Bardugo
#5. (Some girl) "You said we'd have breakfast!"
(Jasper) "If i live, i'll buy you waffles."
"You don't have enough money to buy her waffles," Wylan grumbled.
"Be quite. We're in a library. #Quote by Leigh Bardugo
Library quotes by Samuel Johnson
#6. The greatest part of a writer's time is spent in reading, in order to write: a man will turn over half a library to make one book. #Quote by Samuel Johnson
Library quotes by Bob Hartley
#7. I had a dream where I was taken to Heaven and brought into a beautiful library. There I was given two golden books that were covered with dust. The Lord told me they were golden treasure that was needed for the Body of Christ to have the knowledge to proceed and succeed in this hour. #Quote by Bob Hartley
Library quotes by Earl Nightingale
#8. How are you coming with your home library? Do you need some good ammunition on why it's so important to read? The last time I checked the statistics...I think they indicated that only four percent of the adults in this country have bought a book within the past year. That's dangerous. It's extremely important that we keep ourselves in the top five or six percent.
In one of the Monthly Letters from the Royal Bank of Canada it was pointed out that reading good books is not something to be indulged in as a luxury. It is a necessity for anyone who intends to give his life and work a touch of quality. The most real wealth is not what we put into our piggy banks but what we develop in our heads. Books instruct us without anger, threats and harsh discipline. They do not sneer at our ignorance or grumble at our mistakes. They ask only that we spend some time in the company of greatness so that we may absorb some of its attributes.

You do not read a book for the book's sake, but for your own.

You may read because in your high-pressure life, studded with problems and emergencies, you need periods of relief and yet recognize that peace of mind does not mean numbness of mind.

You may read because you never had an opportunity to go to college, and books give you a chance to get something you missed. You may read because your job is routine, and books give you a feeling of depth in life.

You may read because you did go to college.

#Quote by Earl Nightingale
Library quotes by Frances Mayes
#9. I'm reading more than ever. I've started on the left wall of the Carnegie Library and plan to read my way around the room. #Quote by Frances Mayes
Library quotes by Alberto Manguel
#10. The various qualities of my readings seem to permeate my every muscle, so that, when I finally decide
to turn off the library light, I carry into my sleep the voices and the movements of the book I've just closed. #Quote by Alberto Manguel
Library quotes by Justine Picardie
#11. People are often dismissive of librarians and libraries - as if the words are synonymous with boredom or timidity. But isn't that where the best stories are kept? Hidden away on the library bookshelves, lost and forgotten, waiting, waiting, until someone like me comes along, and wants to borrow them? #Quote by Justine Picardie
Library quotes by R.S. Grey
#12. I spun a globe in our estate's library and promised myself I'd travel to whichever country my finger landed on. The globe's colors had blended together in a mess of blue and green and then I'd dropped my finger, abruptly stopping its rotation.
Syria.
Er, right. Minor hiccup.
I spun again and voila!
Italy! #Quote by R.S. Grey
Library quotes by Libby Page
#13. 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
Library quotes by William Shakespeare
#14. I can see he's not in your good books,' said the messenger. 'No, and if he were I would burn my library. #Quote by William Shakespeare
Library quotes by Milton Berle
#15. The problem with life is, by the time you can read women like a book, your library card has expired. #Quote by Milton Berle
Library quotes by Nevada Barr
#16. Because of our library system anyone in America can educate themselves in any field they desire. If they are confused, librarians (that without exception in my forty-seven years experience with them) actually want to help; they take the time to try and get whatever is needed. For free. For anybody. #Quote by Nevada Barr
Library quotes by Michio Kaku
#17. I like to engage the public because when I was in high school, I had all these questions about anti-matter, higher dimensions and time travel. Every time I went to the library, every time I asked people these questions, I would get some strange looks. Nobody could answer any of these questions. #Quote by Michio Kaku
Library quotes by Laura Andersen
#18. I'm here for the library. Not for men, and not for ghosts. #Quote by Laura Andersen
Library quotes by Deborah Meyler
#19. I never got int the library thing. I always liked that I could put my hand on a book when I wanted it. And to know I owned them; that was important too. #Quote by Deborah Meyler
Library quotes by Terence McKenna
#20. One of the things that people don't do enough of when they do psychedelic work is spend time in the library. #Quote by Terence McKenna
Library quotes by Jonathan Kellerman
#21. I spent the first few years of my life in a smallish community in Queens. Back in those early days, kids could roam the streets with relatively little supervision and one place I visited frequently was the local library. This particular branch was little more than a storefront but to me it was an alternative universe where I could explore my interests and receive kind, informative answers to my questions from the wonderful librarians. #Quote by Jonathan Kellerman
Library quotes by Tim Dorsey
#22. These rare gray afternoons evoke a sweet, childhood melancholy in my soul, like when it rained in kindergarten and we had to stay inside and do crafts with library paste and pipe cleaners and buttons, and I made the best project in the whole class, an ultra-powerful rubber-band zip gun, but the teacher gave me a zero because I got her in the eye with a button. #Quote by Tim Dorsey
Library quotes by Alberto Manguel
#23. If every library is in some sense a reflection of its readers, it is also an image of that which we are not, and cannot be. #Quote by Alberto Manguel
Library quotes by Anne Carson
#24. What would it be like to live in a library of melted books. With sentences streaming over the floor and all the punctuation settled to the bottom as a residue. It would be confusing. Unforgivable. A great adventure. #Quote by Anne Carson
Library quotes by Jojo Moyes
#25. She was so ridiculously happy that most days she didn't know how to contain it. Every morning before dawn she would unwrap her long limbs reluctantly from those of her husband, drink the coffee he insisted on making for her, then walk down to open the library and get the stove going, ready for the others to arrive. Despite the cold and the brutal hour, she was almost always to be found smiling. If Peggy Van Cleve's friends chose to remark that Alice Guisler had let herself go something awful since she'd started up at that library, what with her un-set hair and her mannish outfits (and to think her so refined and well-dressed when she came, and all!), then Fred couldn't have noticed less. He was married to the most beautiful woman in the world, and every night after they had each finished work, and put away the dishes side by side, he made sure to pay homage. In the still air of Split Creek it was not unusual for those who were walking past in the darkness to shake an amused head at the breathless and joyous sounds emanating from the house behind the library. In Baileyville, in winter, there was not much to do after the sun went down, after all. #Quote by Jojo Moyes
Library quotes by John Jakes
#26. Libraries are magical places. There's nothing quite like strolling the hushed aisles, letting your eye rove along dimly lit shelves. Each spine, each title, seems to beckon with a promise of incredible wonders, surprises, and adventures. #Quote by John Jakes
Library quotes by Ray Bradbury
#27. They felt the wings on their fingers and elbows flying, then, suddenly plunged in new sweeps of air, the clear autumn river flung them headlong where they must go. Up steps, three, six, nine, twelve! Slap! Their palms hit the library door. Jim and Will grinned at each other. It was all so good, these blowing quiet October nights and the library waiting inside now with its green-shaded lamps and papyrus dust. #Quote by Ray Bradbury
Library quotes by Theophile Gautier
#28. [The critic] serves up his erudition in strong doses; he pours out all the knowledge he got up the day before in some library or other, and treats in heathenish fashion people at whose feet he ought to sit, and the most ignorant of whom could give points to much wiser men than he.
Authors bear this sort of thing with a magnanimity and a patience that are really incomprehensible. For, after all, who are those critics, who with their trenchant tone, their dicta, might be supposed sons of the gods? They are simply fellows who were at college with us, and who have turned their studies to less account, since they have not produced anything, and can do no more than soil and spoil the works of others, like true stymphalid vampires. #Quote by Theophile Gautier
Library quotes by Caitlin Moran
#29. And every book, you find, has its own social group
friends of its own it wants to introduce you to, like a party in the library that need never, ever end. #Quote by Caitlin Moran
Library quotes by Pam Munoz Ryan
#30. A library is a temple unabridged with priceless treasure. Librarians are the majesties who loan the jewels of measure. They welcome to the kingdom the young and old of reapers and reign among the riches as the wondrous fortune keepers. #Quote by Pam Munoz Ryan
Library quotes by Sandra Cisneros
#31. I had a mother who walked to the library with me, and you can't walk to a lot of libraries in San Antonio because - guess what? - there are no sidewalks, except in the neighborhoods. And they're across big boulevards, and it's so hot, you can't even walk to the corner. So things like that affect how children can get to libraries. So there are a lot of things involved. #Quote by Sandra Cisneros
Library quotes by Jane Austen
#32. I am no indiscriminate novel reader. The mere trash of the common circulating library I hold in the highest contempt. #Quote by Jane Austen
Library quotes by Ellen Bass
#33. The Aftermath

When the fierce pure pleasure
has clawed through, ripped open
my tent of separateness,
I lay in my lover's arms, weeping
and exposed. I can't help seeing

my sister, new widow
whose heart hangs
heavy, a side of beef
in the ice box of her chest.
I imagine her entering
a bedroom like this, maples
flaming beyond the window
against a perfectly useless blue sky.

And then my mother-in-law
stops at the library on the way home
from her husband's funeral,
picks up the book they've been holding.
It sits in the passenger seat
while she stares at the windshield, stunned,
a bird flown into glass.

Even my friend whose wife hasn't died yet
appears in this sex-drenched air. Tears
pool in the shallows under his eyes.
If his soul were a tin can, it would be sliced,
the thick soup leaking out.

The night is soaked with suffering.
My dumb body, sprung open, can't tell
the difference between this blaze of pleasure
and the sorrow it drags in.
As I gaze out into the gathering darkness
it seems I almost comprehend
the mystery, glimpse the water of life
pouring through my form into theirs,
theirs back to mine, misery and ecstasy
swirled like the blue white planet
seen from space,

but it lasts less than a moment--
the arms of my own dear one
haul me back into my #Quote by Ellen Bass
Library quotes by Ed Asner
#34. The free access to information is not a privilege, but a necessity for any free society. One of my favorite things to do as a young man was wander through the stacks of my hometown library. I'd just browse until I found something interesting. Libraries have definitely changed my life. #Quote by Ed Asner
Library quotes by Firoozeh Dumas
#35. Ever since we had arrived in the United States, my classmates kept asking me about magic carpets.
- They don't exist-I always said. I was wrong. Magic carpets do exist. But they are called library cards. #Quote by Firoozeh Dumas
Library quotes by Sarah J. Maas
#36. And the city would have a library, too. A great, wonderful library. Or a bookshop with a knowledgeable owner who could make sure her thirst for books was always sated. #Quote by Sarah J. Maas
Library quotes by Robert Ludlum
#37. Before taking her into the library, my wife told me she was an old friend in a marriage crisis. A fatuous lie; at her age there are no crises left in marriage, only acceptance and extraction. (General Villiers) #Quote by Robert Ludlum
Library quotes by Guillermo Del Toro
#38. What we read and why we do so defines us in a profound way. You are what you read, I suppose. Browsing through someone's library is like peeking into their DNA #Quote by Guillermo Del Toro
Library quotes by Deb Caletti
#39. We are all a volume on a shelf of a library, a story unto ourselves, never possibly described with one word or even very accurately with thousands. A person is never as quiet or unrestrained as they seem, or as bad or good, as vulnerable or as strong, as sweet or as fiesty; we are thickly layered, page upon lying page, behind simple covers. And love - it is not the book itself, but the binding. It can rip us apart or hold us together. #Quote by Deb Caletti
Library quotes by Clifford Currie Librarian Of The Ashmolean Library Oxford
#40. 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
Library quotes by Eilis O'Neal
#41. How can you be nervous? Don't you see? We're in a library. #Quote by Eilis O'Neal
Library quotes by Frances Hardinge
#42. And perhaps some other later girl, leafing through her father's library, would come across a footnote in an academic journal and read the name 'Faith Sunderly.' Faith? she would think. That is a female name. A woman did this. If that is so ... then so can I. And the little fire of hope, self-belief and determination would pass to another heart. #Quote by Frances Hardinge
Library quotes by Harold Sinclair
#43. Suppose each of us make up a list of, say, fifty or more books that we believe should be in the library. Then , when Robinson goes to the bookseller in Philadelphia let him start with the first of each of our chooses, then the second of each, and so on down, omitting duplicates, of course. Let him go as far as his money lasts. How does that sound."
"Vandaliz has a library," Fell said, "and so has Springfield and Edwardsville. why not Everton. #Quote by Harold Sinclair
Library quotes by Lemony Snicket
#44. The room was a library. Not a public library, but a private library; that is, a collection of books belonging to Justice Strauss. There were shelves and shelves of them, on every wall from the floor to the ceiling, and separate shelves of them in the middle of the room. The only place were there weren't books was in one corner, where there were some large, comfortable-looking chairs and a wooden table with lamps hanging over them, perfect for reading. Although it was not as big as their parents library, it was cozy, and the Baudelaire children were thrilled. #Quote by Lemony Snicket
Library quotes by Vartan Gregorian
#45. It meant that New York philanthropists, New York society, would now rediscover the library ... that learning, books, education have glamour, that self-improvement has glamour, that hope has glamour. #Quote by Vartan Gregorian
Library quotes by Cornelia Funke
#46. A library book, I imagine, is a happy book. #Quote by Cornelia Funke
Library quotes by Arnold Hauser
#47. The other strikingly modern feature of the type of poet which Euripides now introduced into the history of literature is his apparently voluntary refusal to take any part whatever in public life. Euripides was not a soldier as Aeschylus was, nor a priestly dignitary as Sophocles was, but, on the other hand, he is the very first poet who is reported to have possessed a library, and he appears to be also the first poet to lead the life of a scholar in complete retirement from the world. If the bust of him, with its tousled hair, its tired eyes and the embittered lines round the mouth, is a true portrait, and if we are right in seeing in it a discrepancy between body and spirit, and the expression of a restless and dissatisfied life, then we may say that Euripides was the first unhappy poet, the first whose poetry brought him suffering. The notion of genius in the modern sense is not merely completely strange to the ancient world; its poets and artists have nothing of the genius about them. The rational and craftsmanlike elements in art are far more important for them than the irrational and intuitive. Plato's doctrine of enthusiasm emphasized, indeed, that poets owed their work to divine inspiration and not to mere technical ability, but this idea by no means leads to the exaltation of the poet; it only increases the gulf between him and his work, and makes of him a mere instrument of the divine purpose. It is, however, of the essence of the modern notion of genius that there i #Quote by Arnold Hauser
Library quotes by Isabel Allende
#48. The library is inhabited by spirits that come out of the pages at night. #Quote by Isabel Allende
Library quotes by Michael Ellsberg
#49. Learning is available at the library for free; under a tree with a dog-eared paperback; at a job with a boss who gives you responsibility and mentorship; while traveling; while leading a cause, movement, or charity; while writing a novel or composing a poem or crafting a song; while interning, apprenticing, or volunteering; while playing a sport or immersing yourself in a language; while starting a business; and now, while watching a TED talk or taking a Khan Academy class ... #Quote by Michael Ellsberg
Library quotes by Jandy Nelson
#50. Each time someone dies, a library burns. #Quote by Jandy Nelson
Library quotes by Melissa Grey
#51. She had gone to the library in search of hope, but what she'd found instead was a child. It would take her many years to realize that the two were not so different. #Quote by Melissa Grey
Library quotes by Genevieve Cogman
#52. The atmosphere of the place soothed her automatically; the rich lantern lights, the sheer scent of paper and leather, and the fact that everywhere she looked, there were books, books, beautiful books. #Quote by Genevieve Cogman
Library quotes by Mary Kingsley
#53. The grim, grand African forests are like a great library, in which, so far, I can do little more than look at the pictures, although I am now busily learning the alphabet of their language, so that I may some day read what these pictures mean. #Quote by Mary Kingsley
Library quotes by Hardeep Singh Kohli
#54. To reduce a library to simple architecture, bricks and mortar is a mistake. Similarly, to suggest a library is defined by the books on the shelf is erroneous. Libraries are very special spaces, spaces where people come together in separate but joint pursuits of knowledge, of learning. Libraries are the heartbeats of communities. #Quote by Hardeep Singh Kohli
Library quotes by Karin Slaughter
#55. As voters and taxpayers, we must demand that our local governments properly prioritize libraries. As citizens, we must invest in our library down the street so that the generations served by that library grow up to be adults who contribute not just to their local communities but to the world. #Quote by Karin Slaughter
Library quotes by Randall Munroe
#56. In the Clarendon Library at Oxford University sits a battery-powered bell that has been ringing since the year 1840. The bell "rings" so quietly it's almost inaudible, using only a tiny amount of charge with every motion of the clapper. Nobody knows exactly what kind of batteries it uses because nobody wants to take it apart to figure it out. #Quote by Randall Munroe
Library quotes by Kimberly Derting
#57. 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
Library quotes by Robert Arger
#58. Libraries are always bigger on the inside because every book has an entire word inside of it. #Quote by Robert Arger
Library quotes by James Turner
#59. Since at least the Sixth Century all librarians have received extensive combat training and are lethal with even the common toothpick. #Quote by James Turner
Library quotes by Ray Bradbury
#60. When rivers flooded, when fire fell from the sky, what a fine place the library was, the many rooms, the books. With luck, no one found you. How could they!
when you were off to Tanganyika in '98, Cairo in 1812, Florence in 1492!? #Quote by Ray Bradbury
Library quotes by Dermot Mulroney
#61. What people actually refer to as research nowadays is really just Googling. #Quote by Dermot Mulroney
Library quotes by Rita Dove
#62. The library is an arena of possibility, opening both a window into the soul and a door onto the world. #Quote by Rita Dove
Library quotes by Laini Taylor
#63. The library knows its own mind...When it steals a boy, we let it keep him. #Quote by Laini Taylor
Library quotes by Franny Billingsley
#64. When Rose takes to screaming, she starts loud, continues loud, and ends loud. Rose has a very good ear and always screams on the same note. I'd tested her before I burnt the library, and our piano along with it.
Rose screams on the note B flat.
We don't need a piano anymore now that we have a human tuning fork. #Quote by Franny Billingsley
Library quotes by Maurice Ashley
#65. Well I just so happened to bump into a chess book in the library at school and I didn't know that there were books on chess and so I take this book out and I'm like this is going to be cool, I'm going to whoop on this guy now, so I studied the book and I go back and the guy crushes me again. #Quote by Maurice Ashley
Library quotes by Jonathan Dee
#66. 'Anna Karenina.' I read it in college. I was so engrossed that I couldn't stop reading it and neglected all my other studies. I would go to the library even on nice warm weekends and just lock myself up. I think that was the first time that I felt transformed by a book. #Quote by Jonathan Dee
Library quotes by Lindsey Drager
#67. For a long while they are silent, thinking about abstract things like control and what it means to love an institution that is defined by loss, because a library is such a space and their duty is to encourage the books to leave. #Quote by Lindsey Drager
Library quotes by Tommy Cooper
#68. So he said 'I'm going to chop off the bottom of one of your trouser legs and put it in a library.' I thought 'That's a turn-up for the books.' #Quote by Tommy Cooper
Library quotes by Tracey Lindberg
#69. 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 quotes by Alberto Manguel
#70. Ordered by subject, by importance, ordered according to whether the book was penned by God or by one of God's creatures, ordered alphabetically or by numbers or by the language in which the text is written, every library translates the chaos of discovery and creation into a structured system of hierarchies or a rampage of free associations. #Quote by Alberto Manguel
Library quotes by Daniel Quinn
#71. In fact, of course, there is no secret knowledge; no one knows anything that can't be found on a shelf in the public library. #Quote by Daniel Quinn
Library quotes by Michael Caine
#72. Books were my window on the world. Growing up at the Elephant and Castle, which was very rough, my paradise was the library. #Quote by Michael Caine
Library quotes by Joseph Howe
#73. My books are very few, but then the world is before me - a library open to all - from which poverty of purse cannot exclude me - in which the meanest and most paltry volume is sure to furnish something to amuse, if not to instruct and improve. #Quote by Joseph Howe
Library quotes by Susan Glaspell
#74. Two people do not really live together until their books become one library. You have known just how to classify your own - books you have had, some of them since you were eleven years old. Strange now to have them adapting themselves to the books of some one else - these two life-histories becoming one, two pasts uniting. #Quote by Susan Glaspell
Library quotes by Alan Moore
#75. I don't think people realise how vital libraries are or what a colossal danger it would be if we were to lose any more. Having had a truncated school life myself, all of my education from the age of 17 has been self-taught. I wouldn't be the person I am today if it wasn't for the opportunities the library gave me. #Quote by Alan Moore
Library quotes by Seneca.
#76. You must linger among a limited number of master thinkers, and digest their works, if you would derive ideas which shall win firm hold in your mind. #Quote by Seneca.
Library quotes by Wolfgang Baur
#77. Worldbuilding is dull. Worldbuilding literalises the urge to invent. Worldbuilding gives an unnecessary permission for acts of writing (indeed, for acts of reading). Worldbuilding numbs the reader's ability to fulfill their part of the bargain, because it believes that it has to do everything around here if anything is going to get done. "Above all, worldbuilding is not technically necessary. It is the great clomping foot of nerdism. It is the attempt to exhaustively survey a place that isn't there. A good writer would never try to do that, even with a place that is there. It isn't possible, and if it was the results wouldn't be readable: they would constitute not a book but the biggest library ever built, a hallowed place of dedication and lifelong study. This gives us a clue to the psychological type of the worldbuilder and the worldbuilder's victim, and makes us very afraid. #Quote by Wolfgang Baur
Library quotes by Mortimer J. Adler
#78. The rules for reading yourself to sleep are easier to follow than are the rules for staying awake while reading. Get into bed in a comfortable position, make sure the light is inadequate enough to cause slight eyestrain, choose a book that is either terribly difficult or terribly boring - in any event, one that you do not really care whether you read or not - and you will be asleep in a few minutes. Those who are experts in relaxing with a book do not have to wait for nightfall. A comfortable chair in the library will do any time #Quote by Mortimer J. Adler
Library quotes by Laurie R. King
#79. I took to the Bodleian library as to a lover and ... would sit long hours in Bodley's arms to emerge, blinking and dazed with the small and feel of all those books. #Quote by Laurie R. King
Library quotes by Mary Virginia Provines
#80. Books are only half our job ; the other half is human nature. #Quote by Mary Virginia Provines
Library quotes by Brandon Mull
#81. Are you missing the library again?" Seth asked, startling her as he walked into the room.
Kendra turned to face her brother. "You caught me," she congratulated him. "I'm reading."
"I bet the librarians back home are panicking. Summer vacation, and no Kendra Sorenson to keep them in business. Have they been sending you letters?"
"Might not hurt you to pick up a book, just as an experiment."
Whatever. I looked up the definition for 'nerd' in the dictionary. Know what it said?"
"I bet you'll tell me."
" 'If you're reading this, you are one.' "
You're a riot." Kendra turned back to the journal, flipping to a random page.
Seth took a seat on his bed across from her. "Kendra, seriously, I can sort of see reading a cool book for fun, but dusty old journals? Really? Has anybody told you there are magical creatures out there?" He pointed out the window.
"Has anybody told you some of those creatures can eat you?" Kendra responded. "I'm not reading these just for fun. They have good info."
"like what? Patton and Lena smooching?"
Kendra rolled her eyes. "I'm not telling. You'll end up in a tar pit."
"There's a tar pit?" he said, perking up. "Where? #Quote by Brandon Mull
Library quotes by Isabella Koldras
#82. When feelings run deep, and impulses high, it helps to have calm, secure places to retreat to. #Quote by Isabella Koldras
Library quotes by Bill Watterson
#83. Calvin: "I read this library book you got me."
Calvin's Mom: "What did you think of it?"
Calvin: "It really made me see things differently. It's given me a lot to think about."
Calvin's Mom: "I'm glad you enjoyed it."
Calvin: "It's complicating my life. Don't get me any more. #Quote by Bill Watterson
Library quotes by Zadie Smith
#84. You're a library of me. #Quote by Zadie Smith
Library quotes by Jon Oringer
#85. While the scale of our library is certainly attractive to our users, equally important is the quality of the content we provide and our state-of-the-art processing operation that vets every single piece of content that's submitted to ensure only the most suitable content is included. #Quote by Jon Oringer

#86. A library is such a potent symbol of a town's values: each one closed down might as well be six thousand stickers plastered over every available surface, reading WE CHOSE TO BECOME MORE STUPID AND DULL. #Quote by Caitlin Moran
Library quotes by Kate Capshaw
#87. The best preparation for acting is life - observing life and people and observing yourself. All that becomes your library. So when you have to research a part, a scene or an emotion, you go into the library and get what you need. #Quote by Kate Capshaw
Library quotes by Isaac Asimov
#88. Congratulations on the new library, because it isn't just a library. It is a space ship that will take you to the farthest reaches of the Universe, a time machine that will take you to the far past and the far future, a teacher that knows more than any human being, a friend that will amuse you and console you-and most of all, a gateway, to a better and happier and more useful life. #Quote by Isaac Asimov
Library quotes by Ursula K. Le Guin
#89. I hope you'll understand that I am not quoting those great words lightly. I do mean it. Knowledge sets us free, art sets us free. A great library is freedom. #Quote by Ursula K. Le Guin
Library quotes by Vartan Gregorian
#90. The library is our house of intellect, our transcendental university, with one exception: no one graduates from a library. No one possibly can, and no one should. #Quote by Vartan Gregorian
Library quotes by Bjarne Stroustrup
#91. The standard library saves programmers from having to reinvent the wheel. #Quote by Bjarne Stroustrup
Library quotes by T. S. Eliot
#92. The very existence of libraries affords the best evidence that we may yet have hope for the future of man #Quote by T. S. Eliot
Library quotes by Sarah Jessica Parker
#93. When I go to a premiere I like to borrow lovely clothes and shoes from designers. It's like the library: if you return them in good condition, you get to borrow more. I'm very lucky. #Quote by Sarah Jessica Parker
Library quotes by Joyce Dennys
#94. Last week posters appeared up and down the street which said "GIVE A GOOD BOOK IN AID OF THE RED CROSS". I was pleased when I saw them, for I thought it must mean books of a religious nature were needed, and as I haven't got any it absolved me from all responsibility.
To part with even one of the tattered and incongruous volume which form what I am pleased to call my library is, for me, worse than losing a front tooth. Sometimes I wake in the night and writhe to think of the books I have lent to people and never seen again. Once I groaned aloud and woke Charles. "What is the matter Henrietta?" he said, "Have you got a pain?"
"No, Charles, but I keep thinking of that copy of Barchester Towers which I lent somebody and never got back."
"For crying out loud!" said Charles, and went to sleep again. #Quote by Joyce Dennys
Library quotes by Anthony Hecht
#95. There's not a good poet I know who has not at the beck and call of his memory a vast quantity of poetry that composes his mental library. #Quote by Anthony Hecht
Library quotes by Sydney Smith
#96. Some men have only one book in them, others a library. #Quote by Sydney Smith
Library quotes by Emma Chase
#97. The main roadway is nearly deserted and there's not a single person in front of the dimly lit library. As I follow Mick up the ivory stone steps, for a moment I wonder, is this stalker territory? Does it cross a line? A boundary? But then - fuck it, I'm a prince, we don't have boundaries - it's one of the perks. Anyone who says otherwise is doing it wrong. #Quote by Emma Chase
Library quotes by Edith Wharton
#98. Some men," Flamel irresistibly added, "think of books merely as tools, others as tooling. I'm between the two; there are days when I use them as scenery, other days when I want them as society; so that, as you see, my library represents a makeshift compromise between looks and brains, and the collectors look down on me almost as much as the students. #Quote by Edith Wharton
Library quotes by Thomas S. Kuhn
#99. When it repudiates a past paradigm, a scientific community simultaneously renounces, as a fit subject for professional scrutiny, most of the books and articles in which that paradigm had been embodied. Scientific education makes use of no equivalent for the art museum or the library of classics, and the result is a sometimes drastic distortion in the scientist's perception of his discipline's past. More than the practitioners of other creative fields, he comes to see it as leading in a straight line to the discipline's present vantage. In short, he comes to see it as progress. No alternative is available to him while he remains in the field. #Quote by Thomas S. Kuhn
Library quotes by Richelle Mead
#100. I went to the library seeking information on what might bring hearing back, but now I wonder if there's a way to make it go away again. I can't see why our ancestors thought hearing was such a great thing, why they mourned its loss so much. It's jarring and distracting, making it impossible to focus on anything else. #Quote by Richelle Mead
Library quotes by Ray Bradbury

Library quotes by Herbert S. White
#103. We cannot have good libraries until we first have good librarians-properly educated, profesionally recognized and fairly rewarded. #Quote by Herbert S. White
Library quotes by Oscar Wilde
#104. A sentimentalist is simply one who wants to have the luxury of an emotion without paying for it. We think we can have our emotions for nothing. We cannot. Even the finest and most self-sacrificing emotions have to be paid for. Strangely enough, that is what makes them fine. The intellectual and emotional life of ordinary people is a very contemptible affair. Just as they borrow their ideas from a sort of circulating library of thought - -the Zeitgeist of an age that has no soul - -and send them back soiled at the end of each week, so they always try to get their emotions on credit, and refuse to pay the bill when it comes in. You should pass out of that conception of life. As soon as you have to pay for an emotion you will know its quality, and be the better for such knowledge. And remember that the sentimentalist is always a cynic at heart. Indeed, sentimentality is merely the bank holiday of cynicism. #Quote by Oscar Wilde
Library quotes by Richard Russo
#105. Bookstores, like libraries, are the physical manifestation of the wide world's longest, most thrilling conversation. #Quote by Richard Russo
Library quotes by Walter Dean Myers
#106. I was teased if I brought my books home. I would take a paper bag to the library and put the books in the bag and bring them home. Not that I was that concerned about them teasing me - because I would hit them in a heartbeat. But I felt a little ashamed, having books. #Quote by Walter Dean Myers
Library quotes by Andy Miller
#107. ...It's [kindle] a useful addition to our library, not a replacement for it. #Quote by Andy Miller
Library quotes by H.P. Lovecraft
#108. The strange things of the past which I learnt during those nocturnal meetings with the dead he dismisses as the fruits of my lifelong and omnivorous browsing amongst the ancient volumes of the family library. Had it not been for my old servant Hiram, I should have by this time become quite convinced of my madness. But #Quote by H.P. Lovecraft
Library quotes by Joseph Fink
#109. 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
Library quotes by Swami Vivekananda
#110. A fool may buy all the books in the world, and they will be in his library; but he will be able to read only those that he deserves to. #Quote by Swami Vivekananda
Library quotes by Justin Trudeau
#111. I remember the bad times as a succession of painful emotional snapshots: Me walking into the library at 24 Sussex, seeing my mother in tears, and hearing her talk about leaving while my father stood facing her, stern and ashen. #Quote by Justin Trudeau
Library quotes by John Donne
#112. Death is an ascension to a better library. #Quote by John Donne
Library quotes by Mervyn Peake
#113. There was a library and it is ashes. Let its long length assemble. Than its stone walls its paper walls are thicker; armoured with learning, with philosophy, with poetry that drifts or dances clamped though it is in midnight. Shielded with flax and calfskin and a cold weight of ink, there broods the ghost of Sepulchrave, the melancholy Earl, seventy-sixth lord of half-light. #Quote by Mervyn Peake
Library quotes by Alberto Manguel
#114. Like Petrach's, my books know infinitely more than I do, and I'm grateful that they even tolerate my presence. At times I feel that I abuse the privilege. #Quote by Alberto Manguel
Library quotes by James Gleick
#115. The brain does not own any direct copies of stuff in the world. There is no library of forms and ideas against which to compare the images of perception. Information is stored in a plastic way, allowing fantastic juxtapositions and leaps of imagination. Some chaos exists out there, and the brain seems to have more flexibility than classical physics in finding the order in it. #Quote by James Gleick
Library quotes by Sara Sheridan
#116. Books exist for me not as physical entities with pages and binding, but in the province of my mind. #Quote by Sara Sheridan
Library quotes by Charlie N. Holmberg

Library quotes by Leonard Ravenhill
#118. Books on prayer are good, but not good enough. As books on cooking are good but hopeless unless there is food to work on, so with prayer. One can read a library of prayer books and not be one whit more powerful in prayer. We must learn to pray, and we must pray to learn to pray. #Quote by Leonard Ravenhill
Library quotes by Saib Tabrizi

Library quotes by Erin Jade Lange
#120. If you want to stay, I can meet you after the scrimmage. You could come to my house or I could come to yours or we could meet at the library or a coffee shop or..."
Stop talking, asshole.
"Or we could go somewhere with Wi-Fi or somewhere outside or..."
Oh my God, I hate myself right now. #Quote by Erin Jade Lange
Library quotes by Maya Angelou
#121. Information helps you to see that you're not alone. That there's somebody in Mississippi and somebody in Tokyo who all have wept, who've all longed and lost, who've all been happy. So the library helps you to see, not only that you are not alone, but that you're not really any different from everyone else. #Quote by Maya Angelou
Library quotes by Kimberly Long Cockroft
#122. 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
Library quotes by Jill Lepore
#123. I was obsessed with George Orwell for years. I remember going to the town library and having to put in interlibrary loan requests to get the compilation of his BBC radio pieces. I had to get everything he ever wrote. #Quote by Jill Lepore
Library quotes by David Harsanyi
#124. If the library's rarest frequenters are the ones we'd like to see in them the most, then libraries are failing. #Quote by David Harsanyi
Library quotes by Will Durant

Library quotes by Colman Domingo
#126. I had no inclination to perform as a kid. I was a shy child - I always had my nose in a library book. I didn't start acting until I went to college. Once I started, it seemed to fit like a glove. I felt completely at home on stage. It was the perfect way for me to express myself, even better than writing. #Quote by Colman Domingo
Library quotes by Ludwig Von Mises
#127. Library of the Works of Ludwig von Mises". Here is an article he wrote in 1951, some two years after his magnum opus Human Action appeared, where is lays out his case in a more popular form. The money sentences are "Economic theory has demonstrated in an irrefutable way that a prosperity created by an expansionist monetary and credit policy is illusory and must end in a slump, an economic crisis. It has happened again and again in the past, and it will happen in the future, too. #Quote by Ludwig Von Mises
Library quotes by Robert Darnton
#128. In 2002, Google began an ambitious project to digitize every book in the world. It was intended as a search project: type in a query, and Google would show you snippets. They asked university libraries for books, which they would scan for free. At Harvard we didn't permit them to take works under copyright, but other libraries gave them everything. #Quote by Robert Darnton
Library quotes by Sabrina Jeffries
#129. Mr. Pinter!"
He turned to find Lady Celia approaching. "Yes, my lady?"
To his surprise, she glanced nervously at the open door to the library and lowered her voice. "I must speak to you privately. Do you have a moment?"
He ruthlessly suppressed the leap in his pulse. Lady Celia had never asked to talk to him alone. The singularity of that made him nod curtly and gesture to a nearby parlor.
She preceded him, then stood looking about her with uncharacteristic anxiousness as he entered and left the door open, wanting no one to accuse him of impropriety.
"What is it?" he asked, trying not to sound impatient. Or intrigued. He'd never seen Lady Celia looking unsure of herself. It tugged annoyingly at his sympathies.
"I had a dream last night. That is, I'm not sure if it actually was a dream. I mean, of course it was a dream, but..."
"What's your point, madam?"
Her chin came up, and a familiar martial light entered her gaze. "There's no need to be rude, Mr. Pinter."
He couldn't help it; being this close to her was doing uncomfortable things to him. He could smell her perfume, a tempting mix of...whatever flowery things noblewomen wore to enhance their charms.
Her charms needed no enhancement. #Quote by Sabrina Jeffries
Library quotes by Barack Obama
#130. You know, sometimes I'll go to an 8th-grade graduation and there's all that pomp and circumstance and gowns and flowers. And I think to myself, it's just 8th grade ... An 8th-grade education doesn't cut it today. Let's give them a handshake and tell them to get their butts back in the library! #Quote by Barack Obama
Library quotes by Ray Bradbury
#131. So you go in a library, and you pull a book off the shelf, and you open it, and what are you looking for? A mirror. All of a sudden, a mirror is there and you see yourself. #Quote by Ray Bradbury
Library quotes by Shannon Claire Morelli
#132. Perhaps you'd like to see the library," Sean commented with a wave of his hand. "Tim said you like books."

"How fabulous!" Emily exclaimed at the doorway to a book-lined room. #Quote by Shannon Claire Morelli
Library quotes by Terry Pratchett
#133. There are many horrible sights in the multiverse. Somehow, though, to a soul attuned to the subtle rhythms of a library, there are few worse sights than a hole where a book ought to be.
Someone had stolen a book. #Quote by Terry Pratchett
Library quotes by Amos Bronson Alcott
#134. 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 quotes by John Lubbock

Library quotes by John Bright
#137. What is a great love of books? It is something like a personal introduction to the great and good men of all past times. Books, it is true, are silent as you see them on their shelves; but, silent as they are, when I enter a library I feel as if almost the dead were present, and I know if I put questions to these books they will answer me with all the faithfulness and fulness which has been left in them by the great men who have left the books with us. #Quote by John Bright
Library quotes by Alice Hoffman
#138. I only had access to him when we were together in the library, and I loved them both -the library and my father- equally and without question. #Quote by Alice Hoffman
Library quotes by Arthur Schopenhauer
#139. A library may be very large; but if it is in disorder, it is not so useful as one that is small but well arranged. In the same way, a man may have a great mass of knowledge, but if he has not worked it up by thinking it over for himself, it has much less value than a far smaller amount which he has thoroughly pondered. #Quote by Arthur Schopenhauer
Library quotes by Patricia Cornwell
#140. the suit, if there is one, we still lose because of the publicity." I was scarcely hearing a word of it. Horrible images were playing crazily inside my mind. The 911 call, the fact it was aborted, made me see it. I knew what happened. Lori Petersen was exhausted after her ER shift, and her husband had told her he would be in later than usual that night. So she went to bed, perhaps planning to sleep just awhile, until he got home - as I used to do when I was a resident and waiting for Tony to come home from the law library at Georgetown. She woke up at the sound of someone inside the house, perhaps the quiet sound of this person's footsteps coming down the hallway toward the bedroom. Confused, she called out the name of her husband. No one answered. In that instant of dark silence that must have seemed an #Quote by Patricia Cornwell
Library quotes by Fran Lebowitz
#141. My other hobby, because I just love any job with a gavel, is auctioneer. And I so often have presided over charity auctions in New York that many years ago Sotheby's sent me my own gavel. Now, the Sotheby's gavel is infinitely more elegant
it came in a little velvet bag, with "Sotheby's" inscribed in gold. It hangs in my library. I feel that everyone has occasion to use a gavel at various times everyday, they just don't think of it. #Quote by Fran Lebowitz
Library quotes by Karen Witemeyer
#142. Really, Mr. Grant. One would think that after living in this town for nearly a week and making numerous visits to my library, you would extend me the courtesy of learning my name." "I know your name, Eden." Her eyes shot to his. "I know your name." The intensity in his gaze left no doubt of his sincerity. #Quote by Karen Witemeyer

Library quotes by Max Hawthorne
#145. I saw a post the other day, where someone wrote that, when they walk through a library, they touch the spines of all the books they've read , as a way of greeting their favorite characters . . .

Try that with one of my novels, and you'll walk away counting your fingers! #Quote by Max Hawthorne
Library quotes by Garry Disher
#146. A curious thing happened: the terrains of England began to impinge on my consciousness, altering, then effacing, the world outside the library window ... I was wrapped in a pleasurable dreaminess. I was in a better place. If true life existed elsewhere, then I had almost found it. #Quote by Garry Disher
Library quotes by Paul McAuley
#147. The multiverse, she said, was like an old library whose shelves were packed with books arranged by a cataloguing system that ranked them according to similarity, each book containing within its covers a story that varied only slightly from the stories of its immediate neighbours, but by increasing degrees from those of increasingly distant books. #Quote by Paul McAuley
Library quotes by Joshua Ferris
#148. Hank Nearly was an avid reader. He arrived early in his brown corduroy coat, with a book taken from the library, copied all the pages on the Xerox machine, and sat at his desk reading what looked passebly like the honest pages of business. He's make it through a three-hundred-page novel every two or three days. #Quote by Joshua Ferris
Library quotes by Nicholas Carr
#149. The Net grants us instant access to a library of information unprecedented in its size and scope, and it makes it easy for us to sort through that library - to find, if not exactly what we were looking for, at least something sufficient for our immediate purposes. What the Net diminishes is Johnson's primary kind of knowledge: the ability to know, in depth, a subject for ourselves, to construct within our own minds the rich and idiosyncratic set of connections that give rise to a singular intelligence. #Quote by Nicholas Carr
Library quotes by Noam Chomsky
#150. It is easier to go to the Internet than to go to the library, undoubtedly. But the shift from no libraries to the existence of libraries was a much greater shift than what we've seen with the Internet's development. #Quote by Noam Chomsky
Library quotes by Sandra Cisneros
#151. I think that it's not enough to do the little Band-Aid things of having celebrities come and read to children. Not that we don't need to read to children, but we don't need to just do it one time and feel good about it. I think we need to think long range about poor people and their relationship to libraries. #Quote by Sandra Cisneros
Library quotes by John Palfrey
#152. Library users tell survey researchers that they want access to more ebooks and they want libraries to offer more technologically up-to-date services. #Quote by John Palfrey
Library quotes by Neil Postman
#153. Since intelligence is primarily defined as one's capacity to grasp the truth of things, it follows that what a culture means by intelligence is derived from the character of its important forms of communication. In a purely oral culture, intelligence is often associated with aphoristic ingenuity, that is, the power to invent compact sayings of wide applicability. the wise Solomon, we are told in First Kings, knew three thousand proverbs. In a print culture, people with such a talent are thought to be quaint at best, more likely pompous bores. In a purely oral culture, a high value is always placed on the power to memorize, for where there are no written words, the human mind must function as a mobile library. To forget how something is to be said or done is a danger to the community and a' gross form of stupidity. In a print culture, the memorization of a poem, a menu, a law or most anything else is merely charming. It is almost always functionally irrelevant and certainly not considered a sign of high intelligence. #Quote by Neil Postman
Library quotes by Douglas Self
#154. Sleepless nights, infinite random thoughts, Remembering those moments, he had much to say, an urge to talk to someone, to be cared, to be loved, to be understood !! She was gone by now, And he was lost !! There it was, A white paper note, a pen, and the dark clouds forcing him to spill out !! Yes Words did most of talking, the unsaid words took the paper form .. Strange it was, the way Love was lost somewhere in the Library stacks !! #Quote by Douglas Self

Library quotes by Sherman Alexie
#157. 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 quotes by Elizabeth Hunter
#158. Oh, wow."
"What do you think?"
"I tried to imagine, but
I mean ... it's so much more
"
"Think it's large enough to keep you satisfied for a while?"
"It's so much bigger than I expected"
He backed away, leaving Beatrice to gaze in wonder at the library that took up half of the second floor.
"I think I'll just leave you two alone for a bit," he said with a chuckle. #Quote by Elizabeth Hunter
Library quotes by Brad Wilk
#159. I think it's really important, and it's a lesson I didn't learn until my late teens: Whatever bands that you love, go find out what bands they love, and what bands turned them on, and then you really start getting into the human aspect of it because the further back you go in time the less technology you had, and consequently the better records you had. There's this incredible library of music thank god. #Quote by Brad Wilk
Library quotes by Sabrina Jeffries
#160. Hetty was awakened from a doze in a chair by the sound of a door opening. She was about to make herself known to whoever had entered the library when someone else entered, too, and she heard Minerva say, "Well? What do you think? Am I right about Oliver and Miss Butterfield?"
Shrinking into the chair, she prayed she wouldn't be noticed in the corner.
"It certainly looks that way." It was Jarret's voice. "He does seem to have genuine feelings for her. I've never witnessed him act like that over a woman. You should have seen him-ready to strike me when I suggested going after her myself."
"What a brilliant touch!" Minerva cried. "I told you he liked her. And I'll hazard a guess that she likes him, too. I went up to her room after they got back, and she blushed furiously when I asked if Oliver had behaved himself."
"That's the problem. Liking her is one thing, but whether he'll act on the attraction honorably is another matter entirely. Oliver isn't used to being around a woman he's not allowed to…er…"
"Take to bed."
Hetty blinked.
"My God, Minerva, don't say things like that! You're not supposed to know about such matters."
"Pish posh. I could hardly grow up with a rogue for a father and three rogue brothers without hearing a few things."
Hetty had to chomp on the inside of her cheek to stifle her laugh.
"Well, at least pretend you don't know, will you?" Jarret grumbled. "One day you'll say something like that in public and give #Quote by Sabrina Jeffries

Library quotes by Umberto Eco
#164. 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
Library quotes by Akira Mizuta Lippit
#165. Borges's extreme architecture attempts to visualize the universe by assigning to every object real and unreal, now and yet to come, a code or sign, a corresponding figure within the Library. It seeks to render totality visible, to effect a total visibility and visuality. The Library of Babel is a view of the universe inside and out, an X-ray of the universe and universal X-ray, seen from within and without. It is a representation of everywhere: a perfect duplication of the universe. And of you: universal. An endless and eternal cinema, an imaginary archive that extends into the universe until it is indistinguishable from it, until you are indistinguishable from the universe. #Quote by Akira Mizuta Lippit
Library quotes by Julia Quinn
#166. She exhaled, and then looked back to Nigel, who was still lying on the floor, moaning incoherently.
Simon looked down, too, and for several seconds they just stood there, staring at the unconscious man, until the girl said, "I really didn't hit him very hard."
"Maybe he's drunk."
She looked dubious. "Do you think? I smelled spirits on his breath, but I've never seen him drunk before."
Simon had nothing to add to that line of thought, so he just asked, "Well, what do you want to do?"
"I suppose we could just leave him here," she said, the expression in her dark eyes hesitant.
Simon thought that was an excellent idea, but it was obvious she wanted the idiot cared for in a more tender manner. And heaven help him, but he felt the strangest compulsion to make her happy.
"Here is what we're going to do," he said crisply, glad that his tone belied any of the odd tenderness he was feeling. "I am going to summon my carriage - "
"Oh, good," she interrupted. "I really didn't want to leave him here. It seemed rather cruel."
Simon thought it seemed rather generous considering the big oaf had nearly attacked her, but he kept that opinion to himself and instead continued on with his plan. "You will wait in the library while I'm gone."
"In the library? But - "
"In the library," he repeated firmly. "With the door shut. Do you really want to be discovered with Nigel's body should anyone happen to wander down this hallway?"
#Quote by Julia Quinn
Library quotes by Terry Pratchett
#167. Firstly," said Ponder, "Mr Pessimal wants to know what we do here."
"Do? We are the premier college of magic!" said Ridcully.
"But do we teach?"
"Only if no alternative presents itself," said the Dean. "We show 'em where the library is, give 'em a few little chats, and graduate the survivors. If they run into any problems, my door is always metaphorically open."
"Metaphorically, sir?" said Ponder.
"Yes. But technically, of course, it's locked."

#168. She has confided to her Aunt Daisy, for instance, that she can understand the genealogical phenomenon that as burst forth all around her. She finds it moving, she says to see men and women - though, oddly, they mostly women - tramping through cemeteries or else huddled over library tables in the university's records room, turning over the pages of county histories, copying names and dates into small spiral notebooks and imagining, hoping, that their unselfish labors will open up into a fabric of substance and comity. all they want is for their to be revealed as simple, honest, law-abiding folks, quiet in their accomplishments, faithful in their vows, cheerful, solvent, and well intentioned, and that their robustly rounded lives will push up against, and perhaps pardon, the contemporary plagues of displacement and disaffection. #Quote by Carol Shields
Library quotes by Natalie Portman
#169. I think the New York Public Library is so, so amazing. It's literally the coolest place - It's good shelter from the sun and it's the most beautiful building. It's really, really fun. #Quote by Natalie Portman
Library quotes by E.K. Johnston
#170. Let me get this straight...You are sending me out in a minivan whose date of manufacture predates the year of my birth, so that I can watch two dragon slayers track down enormous fire-breathing animals, in an effort to prevent me from spending time in the library? #Quote by E.K. Johnston
Library quotes by Belle (Beauty & The Beast)
#171. Your library makes our small corner of the world feel big... #Quote by Belle (Beauty & The Beast)
Library quotes by Christopher Morley
#172. We have all sorts of conditions of booksellers: one is fanatic on the subject of libraries. He thinks that every public library should be dynamited. Another thinks that moving pictures will destroy the book trade. What rot! Surely everything that arouses people's minds, that makes them alert and questing, increases their appetite for books. - Roger Mifflin #Quote by Christopher Morley
Library quotes by Jack Benny
#173. Any man who would walk five miles through the snow, barefoot, just to return a library book so he could save three cents - that's my kind of guy. #Quote by Jack Benny
Library quotes by Sophie Divry

Library quotes by Diana Gabaldon
#175. The room was as big as the Duke of Pardloe's library and had at least as many books, and yet the feeling of it was more akin to a small cluttered hole (Pardloe's)
You could tell from the books whether a library was meant for show or not, Books that were usedhad an open, interested feel to them, even when closed and neatly lined up on a shelf in strict order. You felt as though the book took on as much interest in you as you did in it and it was willing you to reach for it. #Quote by Diana Gabaldon
Library quotes by Studs Terkel
#176. All you need in life is truth and beauty and you can find both at the Public Library. #Quote by Studs Terkel
Library quotes by Kimberly Krey
#177. It smelled like a library – the initial whiff of something bitter, followed by the scent lingering in every book there – dusty, sweet, and full of possibilities. #Quote by Kimberly Krey
Library quotes by John Sandford
#178. MARLYS WAS A WOMAN of ordinary appearance, if seen in a supermarket or a library, dressed in homemade or Walmart dresses or slacks, a little too heavy, but fighting it, white-haired, ruddy-faced. In her heart, though, she housed a rage that knew no bounds. The rage fully possessed her at times, and she might be seen sitting in her truck at a stoplight, pounding the steering wheel with the palms of her hands, or walking through the noodle aisle at the supermarket with a teeth-baring snarl. She had frightened strangers, who might look at her and catch the flames of rage, quickly extinguished when Marlys realized she was being watched. The rage was social and political and occasionally personal, based on her hatred of obvious injustice, the crushing of the small and helpless by the steel wheels of American plutocracy. #Quote by John Sandford
Library quotes by Roger Rosenblatt
#179. If a man spends enough time in a library, he may actually change his mind. I have seen it happen. #Quote by Roger Rosenblatt

Library quotes by John Dos Passos
#181. U. S. A. is the slice of a continent. U. S. A. is a group of holding companies, some aggregations of trade unions, a set of laws bound in calf, a radio network, a chain of moving picture theatres, a column of stockquotations rubbed out and written in by a Western Union boy on a blackboard, a public-library full of old newspapers and dogeared historybooks with protests scrawled on the margins in pencil. U. S. A. is the world's greatest rivervalley fringed with mountains and hills, U. S. A. is a set of bigmouthed officials with too many bankaccounts. U. S. A. is a lot of men buried in their uniforms in Arlington Cemetery. U. S. A. is the letters at the end of an address when you #Quote by John Dos Passos

Library quotes by Kellie Elmore
#183. Maybe Heaven will be a library. Then I will be able to finish my to-read list. #Quote by Kellie Elmore
Library quotes by Eric Schlosser
#184. Basically, I'm a perpetual student. I start by finding a subject I really don't know very much, but that I'm curious about. I learn about it through books in a library, by doing interviews with people who know a lot about the subject, and by going out on my own and seeing for myself what's happening. #Quote by Eric Schlosser
Library quotes by Avi
#185. Every night, I was read to. Every Friday, we were taken to the library. I always received at least one book for my birthday. I have a few of them yet. Early on, I had my own collection of books. I loved to read. Still do. #Quote by Avi
Library quotes by Ernest Hemingway,
#186. But she was delightful and charming and welcoming and behind her, as high as the wall and stretching out into the back room which gave onto the inner court of the building, were the shelves and shelves of the richness of the library. #Quote by Ernest Hemingway,
Library quotes by Kurt Masur
#187. I worked on scores. I went to the musical library in Berlin which is very famous. I discovered that we had scores of Beethoven, printed scores of Beethoven, that are full of mistakes. Not the wrong or false notes, but the wrong dynamic, understandable things. #Quote by Kurt Masur
Library quotes by Bertrand Meyer
#188. Careful as they may be, developers of Eiffel libraries will always run into cases in which, after releasing a library class, they suddenly experience what in French is called esprit de l'escalier or wit of the staircase: a great thought which unfortunately is an afterthought, like a clever reply that would have stunned all the other dinner guests - if only you had thought of it before walking down the stairs after the party is over. #Quote by Bertrand Meyer
Library quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#189. A man's library is a sort of harem. #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Library quotes by Peter Lerangis
#190. Dan's skin was beginning to lose color. "Oh, har-har. A library, right? Just to make me crazy. 'Cause there's no reason we would go to a library. Right? I mean, we don't need to research Peoria, do we?"
Amy began heading for the building. "Not Peoria. Something else."
"Not funny, Amy!" Dan called as she pushed open the heavy brass doors. "Amy...Amy? #Quote by Peter Lerangis
Library quotes by Dominique Venner
#191. To exist is to defy all that threatens you. To be a rebel is not to accumulate a library of subversive books or to dream of fantastic conspiracies or of taking to the hills. It is to make yourself your own law. To find in yourself what counts. To make sure that you're never "cured" of your youth. To prefer to put everyone up against the wall rather than to remain supine. To pillage whatever can be converted to your law, without concern for appearance. #Quote by Dominique Venner
Library quotes by Pete McCarthy
#192. I like reading in a pub rather than a library or study, as it's generally much easier to get a drink. #Quote by Pete McCarthy
Library quotes by James A. Haught
#193. In the year 415, the woman scientist Hypatia, head of the legendary Alexandria library, was beaten to death by Christian monks who considered her a pagan. The leader of the monks, Cyril, was canonized a saint. #Quote by James A. Haught
Library quotes by Craig Padawer
#194. Earlier that day, a typewriter bomb had exploded at a black market skin house over on Eel Street, sending words raining through the cardboard walls of the boudoirs and tattooing copies of the Machinist's 'Twelve Terms' on the bodies of whores and patrons alike. Forty pieces of merch ruined. Their bodies had been obliterated by language, all traces of their sexuality buried beneath a storm of words. There was something horrific about the sight of those who had survived a typewriter attack. Their faces scarred with text, as if they had become hostages to some awful advertisement. A few of the victims took to working the streets around the library where bibliophiles sometimes paid them to satisfy their fantasies amid the desolate hush of the reading rooms and the deserted stacks where the only witnesses to this erotic pantomime of the blank body and its printed partner were other words. #Quote by Craig Padawer
Library quotes by Wai Chim
#195. No one lives in the library.'

Library quotes by Margaret Atwood
#199. The door of Reverend Verringer's impressive manse is opened by an elderly female with a face like a pine plank; the Reverend is unmarried, and has need of an irreproachable housekeeper. Simon is ushered into the library. It is so self-consciously the right sort of library that he has an urge to set fire to it. #Quote by Margaret Atwood
Library quotes by Ray Bradbury
#200. His library was a fine dark place bricked with books, so anything could happen there and always did. All you had to do was pull a book from the shelf and open it and suddenly the darkness was not so dark anymore. #Quote by Ray Bradbury
