Famous quotes containing the word library:

    ... the subjective viewpoint is the only one to use regarding a library. Your true library is a collection of the books you want. You may have deplorably poor taste or bad judgment. Never mind. Correct those traits before you exchange your books.
    Carolyn Wells (1862–1942)

    Madam, a circulating library in a town is as an evergreen tree of diabolical knowledge; it blossoms through the year. And depend on it ... that they who are so fond of handling the leaves, will long for the fruit at last.
    Richard Brinsley Sheridan (1751–1816)

    Knowing I loved my books, he furnished me
    From mine own library with volumes that
    I prize above my dukedom.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
