"Good as it is to inherit a library, it is better to collect one" -Augustine Birrell
"Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend. Inside of a dog it's too dark to read" -Groucho Marx
"The man who does not read good books has no advantage over the man who can't read them." -Mark Twain
"The smallest bookstore still contains more ideas of worth than have been presented in the entire history of television" -Andrew Ross
"Never lend books, for no one ever returns them; the only books I have in my library are books that other folks have lent me" -Anatole France
"No entertainment is so cheap as reading, nor any pleasure so lasting" -Mary Wortley Montague
