More quotes about books and reading

I am still meandering through the Dover Thrift book, Books and Reading: a Book of Quotations. If you like this kind of stuff, stop by your favorite book store and pick up a copy. It costs a whopping $2.50!
Here are a few more of my current favorite quotes.
 In the best books, great men talk to us, give us their most precious thoughts, and pour their souls into ours.---William Ellery Channing
 A library is the delivery room for the birth of ideas, a place where history comes to life.---Norman Cousins
Every novel should have a beginning, a muddle, and an end. ---Peter DeVries
I enjoy reading biographies because I want to know about the people who messed up the world.---Marie Dressler
 I always read the last page of a book first, so that if I die before I finish I'll know how it turned out. ---Nora Ephron
There is no reader so parochial as the one who reads this morning's books. Books are not rolls, to be devoured only when they are hot and fresh. A good book retains its interior heat and will warm a generation yet unborn.---Clifton Fadiman
There is no worse robber than a bad book.---Italian Proverb
