Ideally a book would have no order to it, and the reader would have to discover his own.
There is no such thing as a moral or an immoral book. Books are well written, or badly written.
O Day of days when we can read! The reader and the book, either without the other is naught.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
You cannot open a book without learning something.
A truly good book teaches me better than to read it. I must soon lay it down, and commence living on its hint. What I began by reading, I must finish by acting.
Henry David Thoreau
Don’t join the book burners. Do not think you are going to conceal thoughts by concealing evidence that they ever existed.
Dwight D. Eisenhower
Literature is my Utopia. Here I am not disenfranchised. No barrier of the senses shuts me out from the sweet, gracious discourses of my book friends. They talk to me without embarrassment or awkwardness.
