Cue the Quotes! Lazy Sunday post.

Lazy Sunday! A few of my favourite quotes about books.

 

1. “Borrowers of books – those mutilators of collections, spoilers of the symmetry of shelves, and creators of odd volumes.” ~Charles Lamb

 

2. “Who kills a man kills a reasonable creature, God’s image; but he who destroys a good book, kills reason itself, kills the image of God, as it were in the eye.” ~ John Milton

 

3. “We all know that books burn – yet we have the greater knowledge that books cannot be killed by fire.  People die, but books never die.  No man and no force can abolish memory…In this war, we know, books are weapons.” ~Franklin D. Roosevelt

 

4. “A good book is the precious life-blood of a master spirit, embalmed and treasured up on purpose to a life beyond life.” ~John Milton
