Library Quotes

A great library easily begets affection, which may deepen into love.

Augustine Birrell

I have always imagined that paradise will be a kind of library.

Jorge Luis Borges

The best place to find things: the public library.

Edward Bernays

What I write is full of infirmities. I have been in solitary confinement for twelve months and in a death cell for three months, deprived of all facilities. I have written much of this by resting the paper on my thigh in unbearable heat. I have no reference material or library, I have rarely seen the blue sky. The quotations are from the few books I was permitted to read and from the journals and newspapers you and your mother bring once a week during your visits to my suffocating cell. I am not making excuses for my deficiencies but it is very difficult to rely on a fading memory in such physical and mental conditions. I am fifty years old and you are exactly half my age. By the time you reach my age, you must accomplish twice as much as I have achieved for the people.

Zulfikar Ali Bhutto

Being a writer in a library is rather like being a eunuch in a harem.

John Gerard Braine

Like all those possessing a library, Aurelian was aware that he was guilty of not knowing his in its entirety.
