Books

Famous quotes containing the word books:

    My main wish is to get my books into other people’s rooms, and to keep other people’s books out of mine.
    Samuel Butler (1835–1902)

    After I discovered the real life of mothers bore little resemblance to the plot outlined in most of the books and articles I’d read, I started relying on the expert advice of other mothers—especially those with sons a few years older than mine. This great body of knowledge is essentially an oral history, because anyone engaged in motherhood on a daily basis has no time to write an advice book about it.
    Mary Kay Blakely (20th century)

    There are books ... which take rank in your life with parents and lovers and passionate experiences, so medicinal, so stringent, so revolutionary, so authoritative.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
