Famous quotes containing the word books:

    It is not all books that are as dull as their readers.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    A transition from an author’s books to his conversation, is too often like an entrance into a large city, after a distant prospect.

    Samuel Johnson (1709–1784)

    They lard their lean books with the fat of others’ works.
    Robert Burton (1577–1640)
