Books

Famous quotes containing the word books:

    All books are either dreams or swords,
    You can cut, or you can drug, with words.
    Amy Lowell (1874–1925)

    The future? Like unwritten books and unborn children, you don’t talk about it.
    Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau (b. 1925)

    So here they are, the dog-faced soldiers, the regulars, the fifty-cents-a-day professionals riding the outposts of the nation, from Fort Reno to Fort Apache, from Sheridan to Stark. They were all the same. Men in dirty-shirt blue and only a cold page in the history books to mark their passing. But wherever they rode and whatever they fought for, that place became the United States.
    Frank S. Nugent (1908–1965)
