Famous quotes containing the word books:

    When I am dead, I hope it may be said:
    ‘His sins were scarlet, but his books were read.’
    Hilaire Belloc (1870–1953)

    Some time ago a publisher told me that there are four kinds of books that seldom, if ever, lose money in the United States—first, murder stories; secondly, novels in which the heroine is forcibly overcome by the hero; thirdly, volumes on spiritualism, occultism and other such claptrap, and fourthly, books on Lincoln.
    —H.L. (Henry Lewis)

    Certain books seem to have been written not for the purpose that we learn something from them but that we know that the author was a knowledgeable person.
    Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe (1749–1832)
