The Brahmins say that in their books there are many predictions of times in which it will rain. But press those books as strongly as you can, you can not get out of them a drop of water. So you can not get out of all the books that contain the best precepts the smallest good deed.
Leo Nikolaevich Tolstoy
It is chiefly through books that we enjoy the communion with superior minds... In the best books, authors talk to us, give us their most precious thoughts, and pour their souls into ours. God be thanked for books.
William Ellery Channing

And how I felt it beat under my pillow, in the morning's dark. An hour before the sun would let me read! My books
Elizabeth Barrett Browning
