Citações sobre Livros

Hoje deixo aqui mais umas citações curiosas sobre livros que descobri quando andava a juntar citações para este post. Gosto especialmente da 1ª, 6ª e 9ª.

  1. If one cannot enjoy reading a book over and over again, there is no use in reading it at all. - Oscar Wilde
  2. Books constitute capital. A library book lasts as long as a house, for hundreds of years. It is not, then, an article of mere consumption but fairly of capital, and often in the case of professional men, setting out in life, it is their only capital. - Thomas Jefferson
  3. You can't get a cup of tea big enough or a book long enough to suit me. - C. S. Lewis
  4. Literature is my Utopia. Here I am not disenfranchised. No barrier of the senses shuts me out from the sweet, gracious discourses of my book friends. They talk to me without embarrassment or awkwardness. - Helen Keller
  5. Life-transforming ideas have always come to me through books. - Bell Hooks
  6. There is no mistaking a real book when one meets it. It is like falling in love. - Christopher Morley
  7. A room without books is like a body without a soul. - Cicero
  8. Most new books are forgotten within a year, especially by those who borrow them. - Evan Esar
  9. How many a man has dated a new era in his life from the reading of a book. - Henry David Thoreau
