Famous quotes containing the word books:

    A friend of mine spoke of books that are dedicated like this: “To my wife, by whose helpful criticism ...” and so on. He said the dedication should really read: “To my wife. If it had not been for her continual criticism and persistent nagging doubt as to my ability, this book would have appeared in Harper’s instead of The Hardware Age.”
    Brenda Ueland (1891–1985)

    My only books Were woman’s looks And folly’s all they taught me.
    Thomas Moore (1779–1852)

    If only I could manage, without annoyance to my family, to get imprisoned for 10 years, “without hard labour,” and with the use of books and writing materials, it would be simply delightful!
