Famous quotes containing the word books:

    Human contacts have been so highly valued in the past only because reading was not a common accomplishment.... The world, you must remember, is only just becoming literate. As reading becomes more and more habitual and widespread, an ever-increasing number of people will discover that books will give them all the pleasures of social life and none of its intolerable tedium.
    Aldous Huxley (1894–1963)

    One of the most attractive of those ancient books that I have met with is The Laws of Menu.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    PLAYING SHOULD BE FUN! In our great eagerness to teach our children we studiously look for “educational” toys, games with built-in lessons, books with a “message.” Often these “tools” are less interesting and stimulating than the child’s natural curiosity and playfulness. Play is by its very nature educational. And it should be pleasurable. When the fun goes out of play, most often so does the learning.
    Joanne E. Oppenheim (20th century)
