My Alma mater was books, a good library... I could spend the rest of my life reading, just satisfying my curiosity.
The Bible and several other self help or enlightenment books cite the Seven Deadly Sins. They are: pride, greed, lust, envy, wrath, sloth, and gluttony. That pretty much covers everything that we do, that is sinful... or fun for that matter.
I know that books seem like the ultimate thing that's made by one person, but that's not true. Every reading of a book is a collaboration between the reader and the writer who are making the story up together.
Be true to yourself. Make each day a masterpiece. Help others. Drink deeply from good books. Make friendship a fine art. Build a shelter against a rainy day.
It's in the history books, the Holocaust. It's just a phrase. And the truth is it happened yesterday. It happened to my mother. I never met my grandmothers or my grandfathers. They were all wiped up in the gas chambers of Nazi Germany.
Study how water flows in a valley stream, smoothly and freely between the rocks. Also learn from holy books and wise people. Everything - even mountains, rivers, plants and trees - should be your teacher.
Real education should consist of drawing the goodness and the best out of our own students. What better books can there be than the book of humanity?
We are the children of a technological age. We have found streamlined ways of doing much of our routine work. Printing is no longer the only way of reproducing books. Reading them, however, has not changed.
Lawrence Clark Powell
I do not write for this generation. I am writing for other ages. If this could read me, they would burn my books, the work of my whole life. On the other hand, the generation which interprets these writings will be an educated generation; they will understand me and say: 'Not all were asleep in the nighttime of our grandparents.'
Have you ever heard the expression: Walk a mile in my shoes, and then judge me? And write your own books.
When I was a boy, I always saw myself as a hero in comic books and in movies. I grew up believing this dream.
To read too many books is harmful.
If my books can help children become readers, then I feel I have accomplished something important.
It is an awfully sad misconception that librarians simply check books in and out. The library is the heart of a school, and without a librarian, it is but an empty shell.
Jarrett J. Krosoczka
The book salesman should be honored because he brings to our attention, as a rule, the very books we need most and neglect most.
You don't have to burn books to destroy a culture. Just get people to stop reading them.
One of the most memorable things I hear is when someone tells me that my books got a reluctant reader to read.
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.
The best way to obtain truth and wisdom is not to ask from books, but to go to God in prayer, and obtain divine teaching.
Joseph Smith, Jr.
Whatever hardships there have been in my life I still live in a very privileged position. Fear is not knowing where your next meal is coming from. Fear is seeing a child get hurt. Fear is watching someone you love waste away. Fear is knowing you are going to die yourself. But there's no fear in what I do. I write books.
My books are like water; those of the great geniuses are wine. (Fortunately) everybody drinks water.
There are many little ways to enlarge your child's world. Love of books is the best of all.
I love comic books and I love anime.
Samuel L. Jackson
Nobody wants to read about the honest lawyer down the street who does real estate loans and wills. If you want to sell books, you have to write about the interesting lawyers - the guys who steal all the money and take off. That's the fun stuff.
Those who decide to use leisure as a means of mental development, who love good music, good books, good pictures, good plays, good company, good conversation - what are they? They are the happiest people in the world.
William Lyon Phelps
Leonardo da Vinci
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
