To jump start your Imagination… Quotable library quotes
When I got my library card, that's when my life began. ~Rita Mae Brown
Libraries: The medicine chest of the soul. ~Library at Thebes, inscription over the door
A library is thought in cold storage. ~Herbert Samuel
The best of my education has come from the public library... my tuition fee is a bus fare and once in a while, five cents a day for an overdue book. You don't need to know very much to start with, if you know the way to the public library. ~Lesley Conger
Perhaps no place in any community is so totally democratic as the town library. The only entrance requirement is interest. ~Lady Bird Johnson
As a child, my number one best friend was the librarian in my grade school. I actually believed all those books belonged to her. ~Erma Bombeck
We may sit in our library and yet be in all quarters of the earth. ~John Lubbock
A library is but the soul's burial-ground. It is the land of shadows. ~Henry Ward Beecher
To those with ears to hear, libraries are really very noisy places. On their shelves we hear the captured voices of the centuries-old conversation that makes up our civilization. ~Timothy Healy
If you have a garden and a library, you have everything you need. ~Cicero
Here is where people,
One frequently finds,
Lower their voices
And raise their minds.
~Richard Armour, "Library"
A great library contains the diary of the human race. ~George Mercer Dawson
I love the place; the magnificent books; I require books as I require air. ~Sholem Asch
The richest person in the world - in fact all the riches in the world - couldn't provide you with anything like the endless, incredible loot available at your local library. ~Malcolm Forbes
My books are very few, but then the world is before me - a library open to all - from which poverty of purse cannot exclude me - in which the meanest and most paltry volume is sure to furnish something to amuse, if not to instruct and improve. ~Joseph Howe, 1824
I have always imagined that Paradise will be a kind of library. ~Jorge Luis Borges
There is not such a cradle of democracy upon the earth as the Free Public Library, this republic of letters, where neither rank, office, nor wealth receives the slightest consideration. ~Andrew Carnegie
A good library will never be too neat, or too dusty, because somebody will always be in it, taking books off the shelves and staying up late reading them. ~Lemony Snicket
The library is not a shrine for the worship of books. It is not a temple where literary incense must be burned or where one's devotion to the bound book is expressed in ritual. A library, to modify the famous metaphor of Socrates, should be the delivery room for the birth of ideas - a place where history comes to life. ~Norman Cousins
No possession can surpass, or even equal a good library, to the lover of books. Here are treasured up for his daily use and delectation, riches which increase by being consumed, and pleasures that never cloy. ~John Alfred Landford
Librarians are almost always very helpful and often almost absurdly knowledgeable. Their skills are probably very underestimated and largely underemployed. ~Charles Medawar
Libraries are reservoirs of strength, grace and wit, reminders of order, calm and continuity, lakes of mental energy, neither warm nor cold, light nor dark.... In any library in the world, I am at home, unselfconscious, still and absorbed. ~Germaine Greer
Librarian is a service occupation. Gas station attendant of the mind. ~Richard Powers
The student has his Rome, his Florence, his whole glowing Italy, within the four walls of his library. He has in his books the ruins of an antique world and the glories of a modern one. ~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Nutrimentum spiritus (food for the soul). ~Berlin Royal Library, inscription
The library connects us with the insight and knowledge, painfully extracted from Nature, of the greatest minds that ever were, with the best teachers, drawn from the entire planet and from all our history, to instruct us without tiring, and to inspire us to make our own contribution to the collective knowledge of the human species. I think the health of our civilization, the depth of our awareness about the underpinnings of our culture and our concern for the future can all be tested by how well we support our libraries. ~Carl Sagan, Cosmos
I have always imagined that Paradise will be a kind of library. ~Jorge Luis Borges (1899-1986)
