"Books: they're bookish, them"
some bloke down t' pub
Of making many books there is no end, and much study wearies the body.
If you only read the books that everyone else is reading, you can only think what everyone else is thinking.
Sorry. It's just the way they pasted from where I found them.Bold statements BOLDLY put.
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.
I like this one in particular!The books that the world calls immoral are books that show the world its own shame.
