An Ode to Books

"A room without books is like a body without a soul." ~Cicero

"Properly, we should read for power. Man reading should be man intensely alive. The book should be a ball of light in one's hand." ~Ezra Pound

"Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counsellors, and the most patient of teachers." ~Charles W. Eliot

"Woe be to him that reads but one book." ~George Herbert

"Be as careful of the books you read, as of the company you keep; for your habits and character will be as much influenced by the former as by the latter." ~Paxton Hood
