|“Second hand books are wild books, |
they have come together in vast flocks of variegated feather,
and have a charm which the domesticated volumes of the library lack.”
|“I declare after all there is no enjoyment like reading! |
How much sooner one tires of any thing than of a book!
When I have a house of my own, I shall be miserable if I have not an
excellent library.” Jane Austen Pride and Prejudice
|If you have a garden and a library, |
you have everything you need.
Marcus Tullius Cicero
|I couldn't live a week without a private library - indeed, |
I'd part with all my furniture and squat and sleep on the floor before i'd let go of the books I possess
H P Lovecraft
