Famous quotes by carolyn wells:

    It is the interest one takes in books that makes a library. And if a library have interest it is; if not, it isn’t.
    Carolyn Wells (1862–1942)

    ... advice is one of those things it is far more blessed to give than to receive.
    Carolyn Wells (1862–1942)

    ... as beauty is in the eye of the beholder, the ideal library is in the wish of its maker.
    Carolyn Wells (1862–1942)

    I hate to do what everybody else is doing. Why, only last week, on Fifth Avenue and some cross streets, I noticed that every feminine citizen of these United States wore an artificial posy on her coat or gown. I came home and ripped off every one of the really lovely refrigerator blossoms that were sewn on my own bodices.
    Carolyn Wells (1862–1942)

    I view askance a book that remains undisturbed for a year. Oughtn’t it to have a ticket of leave? I think I may safely say no book in my library remains unopened a year at a time, except my own works and Tennyson’s.
    Carolyn Wells (1862–1942)
