Library Quotations

A library is the delivery room for the birth of ideas, a place where history comes to life.
Norman Cousins

Marcus Tullius Cicero

My Alma mater was books, a good library... I could spend the rest of my life reading, just satisfying my curiosity.
Malcolm X

P. J. O'Rourke

As a kid, I would get my parents to drop me off at my local library on their way to work during the summer holidays, and I would walk home at night. For several years, I read the children's library until I finished the children's library. Then I moved into the adult library and slowly worked my way through them.
Neil Gaiman
