“ Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counselors, and the most patient of teachers. ”
Books are the plane, and the train, and the road. They are the destination, and the journey. They are home.
I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves.
Books don't offer real escape, but they can stop a mind scratching itself raw.
No man can be called friendless who has God and the companionship of good books.
