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

I never known any trouble that an hour's reading didn't assuage.
Charles De Secondat

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. Elliot

Wear that old coat and buy the new book.
Austin Phelps

Books to the ceiling
Books to the sky,
My pile of books is a mile high.
How I love them! How I need them!
I'll have a long beard by the time I read them.
Anna Quindlen

Dale Carnegie (1888 - 1955)
