On Writing and Books

“A small drop of ink produces that which makes thousands think.” Lord Byron

“I cannot remember a time when I was not in love with them—with the books themselves, cover and binding and the paper they were printed on, with their smell and their weight and with their possession in my arms, captured and carried off to myself.” Eudora Welty

“A real book is not one that we read but one that reads us.” W. H. Auden

“The contents of someone’s bookcase are part of his history, like an ancestral portrait.” Anatole Broyard

“The good book is always a book of travel; it is about a life’s journey.” H. M. Tomlinson

“There is no worse robber than a bad book.” Italian proverb
