Author Quotes

A wise man will select his books, for he would not wish to class them all under the sacred name of friends. Some can be accepted only as acquaintances. The best books of all kinds are taken to the heart, and cherished as his most precious possessions. Others to be chatted with for a time, to spend a few pleasant hours with and laid aside, but not forgotten.

No matter what his rank or position may be, the lover of books is the richest and the happiest of children of men.

The only jewel which you can carry beyond the grave is wisdom.

The only jewel which will not decay is knowledge.
