Not really news but still information I guess, I quite like finding quotes about things.
A book is the only place in which you can examine a fragile thought without breaking it, or explore an explosive idea without fear it will go off in your face. It is one of the few havens remaining where a man’s mind can get both provocation and privacy. ~Edward P. Morgan
It is what you read when you don’t have to that determines what you will be when you can’t help it. ~Oscar Wilde
You know you’ve read a good book when you turn the last page and feel a little as if you have lost a friend. ~Paul Sweeney

Outside of a dog, a book is man’s best friend. Inside of a dog it’s too dark to read. ~Groucho Marx
Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counselors, and the most patient of teachers. ~Charles W. Eliot
I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. ~Anna Quindlen, “Enough Bookshelves,” New York Times, 7 August 1991
