Quote of the Day
Honesty is the first chapter in the book of wisdom.
Let us remember: One book, one pen, one child, and one teacher can change the world.
The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.
There is no end to education. It is not that you read a book, pass an examination, and finish with education. The whole of life, from the moment you are born to the moment you die, is a process of learning.
Experts on romance say for a happy marriage there has to be more than a passionate love. For a lasting union, they insist, there must be a genuine liking for each other. Which, in my book, is a good definition for friendship.
Today I begin to understand what love must be, if it exists... When we are parted, we each feel the lack of the other half of ourselves. We are incomplete like a book in two volumes of which the first has been lost. That is what I imagine love to be: incompleteness in absence.
Edmond de Goncourt
You can't get a cup of tea big enough or a book long enough to suit me.
C. S. Lewis
You're never too old, too wacky, too wild, to pick up a book and read to a child.
I never feel lonely if I've got a book - they're like old friends. Even if you're not reading them over and over again, you know they are there. And they're part of your history. They sort of tell a story about your journey through life.
If I had a personal wish for the new ideas in this new book it would be that every parent, every counselor, every teacher, every professor, every sports coach that deals with young people would understand the three circle concept.
I'm writing a book. I've got the page numbers done.
You cannot open a book without learning something.
I would never want a book's autograph. I am a proud non-reader of books.
There is nothing is more musical than a sunset. He who feels what he sees will find no more beautiful example of development in all that book which, alas, musicians read but too little - the book of Nature.
Every book you pick up has its own lesson or lessons, and quite often the bad books have more to teach than the good ones.
Someone asked me, if I were stranded on a desert island what book would I bring... 'How to Build a Boat.'
If you're smart, you'll always be humble. You can learn all you want, but there'll always be somebody who's never read a book who'll know twice what you know.
With every book, you go back to school. You become a student. You become an investigative reporter. You spend a little time learning what it's like to live in someone else's shoes.
You that would judge me, do not judge alone this book or that, come to this hallowed place where my friends' portraits hang and look thereon; Ireland's history in their lineaments trace; think where man's glory most begins and ends and say my glory was I had such friends.
William Butler Yeats
A classic is a book that doesn't have to be written again.
W. E. B. Du Bois
I'm always depressed when a book ends, because those are my friends for however long the book takes to write. Since I spend so many hours with these fictional people, I sometimes see them more than my real friends. And then they're gone, and we'll never be together like that again.
What I see in the Bible, especially in the book of Psalms, which is a book of gratitude for the created world, is a recognition that all good things on Earth are God's, every good gift is from above. They are good if we recognize where they came from and if we treat them the way the Designer intended them to be treated.
Outside of a dog, a book is a man's best friend. Inside of a dog it's too dark to read.
The new year stands before us, like a chapter in a book, waiting to be written. We can help write that story by setting goals.
To read a book, to think it over, and to write out notes is a useful exercise; a book which will not repay some hard thought is not worth publishing.
Martin Luther King, Jr.

If you could get up the courage to begin, you have the courage to succeed.
