The reading of all good books is like a conversation with the finest minds of past centuries.— Rene Descartes
Mind-blowing best book quotes that are about the secret book
A single conversation across the table with a wise man is better than ten years mere study of books.
If you are open-minded and ready to learn, there are many things which you can learn not only from books and instructors but from the very life experience itself.
The Bible is not the light of the world, it is the light of the Church.
But the world does not read the Bible, the world reads Christians! “You are the light of the world.”
Don’t you love the Oxford Dictionary? When I first read it, I thought it was a really really long poem about everything.
The great book, always open and which we should make an effort to read, is that of Nature.
Today I begin to understand what love must be, if it exists.
.. When we are parted, we each feel the lack of the other half of ourselves. We are incomplete like a book in two volumes of which the first has been lost. That is what I imagine love to be: incompleteness in absence.
I like writing books. I'd rather be at home with my wife. I can write, take a break, come out, have a glass of tea, give my wife a kiss, and go back in and write some more. It's not so bad. I am really lucky.
Invention, my dear friends, is 93% perspiration, 6% electricity, 4% evaporation, and 2% butterscotch ripple
A single line in the Bible has consoled me more than all the books I ever read besides.
A room without books is like a body without a soul.
Give me a flagon of red wine, a book of verses, a loaf of bread, and a little idleness. If with such store I might sit by thy dear side in some lonely place, I should deem myself happier than a king in his kingdom.

I believe the Bible is the best gift God has ever given to man.
All the good from The Savior of the world is communicated to us through this Book.
The first step in liquidating a people is to erase its memory.
Destroy its books, its culture, its history. Then have somebody write new books, manufacture a new culture, invent a new history. Before long that nation will begin to forget what it is and what it was... The struggle of man against power is the struggle of memory against forgetting.
Times are bad. Children no longer obey their parents, and everyone is writing a book.
Reading about nature is fine, but if a person walks in the woods and listens carefully, he can learn more than what is in books, for they speak with the voice of God.
The Bible was not given for our information but for our transformation.
The first aim of a good college is not to teach books, but the meaning and purpose of life. Hard study and the learning of books are only a means to this end. We develop power and courage and determination and we go out to achieve Truth, Wisdom and Justice. If we do not come to this, the cost of schooling is wasted.
My heart has become capable of every form: It is a pasture for gazelles And a monastery for Christian monks, And the pilgrim's Ka'ba, And the tablets of the Torah, And the book of the Koran. I follow the religion of Love: Whatever way love's camel takes, That is my religion, my faith.
The value of things is not the time they last, but the intensity with which they occur. That is why there are unforgettable moments and unique people!
All know that the drop merges into the ocean but few know that the ocean merges into the drop.
Be careful about reading health books. You may die of a misprint.
The question is, are we happy to suppose that our grandchildren may never be able to see an elephant except in a picture book?
The Bible is no lazy man's book! Much of its treasure, like the valuable minerals stored in the bowels of the earth, only yield up themselves to the diligent seeker.
