Any book that helps a child to form a habit of reading, to make reading one of his deep and continuing needs, is good for him. –Richard McKenna
Books are the carriers of civilization. Without books, history is silent, literature dumb, science crippled, thought and speculation at a standstill. –Barbara Tuchman
In a real sense, people who have read good literature have lived more than people who cannot or will not read. It is not true that we have only one life to live; if we can read, we can live as many more lives and as many kinds of lives as we wish. –S. I. Hayakawa
In the case of good books, the point is not how many of them you can get through, but rather how many can get through to you. –Mortimer J. Adler
My books are water; those of the great geniuses are wine–everybody drinks water. –Mark Twain

I love the group of quotes! I love the Adler and Twain quotes. Frankly, Twain rocks.
The Alder and Twain quotes are my favorites, too. Twain is a major thirst quencher.
You can count me a Twain fan, as well!
