Famous quotes containing the word wells:

    The books we think we ought to read are poky, dull, and dry;
    The books that we would like to read we are ashamed to buy;
    The books that people talk about we never can recall;
    And the books that people give us, oh, they’re the worst of all.
    —Carolyn Wells (1870–1942)
