The true university these days is a collection of books.
- Thomas Carlyle
Make thy books thy companions. Let thy cases and shelves be thy pleasure grounds and gardens.
- Judah ibn-Tibbon (12th century)
To add a library to a house is to give that house a soul.
No place affords a more striking conviction of the vanity of human hopes than a public library.
- Samuel Johnson
I myself spent hours in the Columbia library as intimidated and embarrassed as a famished gourmet invited to a dream restaurant where every dish from all of the world's cuisines, past and present, was available on request.
- Luigi Barzini
Second hand books are wild books, homeless books; they have come together in vast flocks of variegated feather, and have a charm which the domesticated volumes of the library lack.
- Virginia Woolf
