Books are the carriers of civilization...They are companions, teachers, magicians, bankers of the treasures of the mind. Books are humanity in print.”

- Barbara Tuchman (1912-89)

If you only read the books that everyone else is reading, you can only think what everyone else is thinking.
–Haruki Murakami
 
A book is a version of the world. If you do not like it, ignore it or offer your own version in return.
–Salman Rushdie
 
What an astonishing thing a book is. It’s a flat object made from a tree, with flexible parts on which are imprinted lots of funny, dark squiggles. But one glance at it, and you’re inside the mind of another person, maybe somebody dead for thousands of years. Across the millennia, an author is speaking clearly and silently inside your head, directly to you. Writing is perhaps the greatest of human inventions, binding together people who never knew each other, citizens of distant epochs. Books break the shackles of time. A book is proof that humans are capable of working magic.

Carl Sagan
