“At one magical instant in your early childhood, the page of a book — that string of confused alien ciphers — shivered into meaning.  Words spoke to you, gave up their secrets; at that moment, whole universes opened up.   You became, irrevocably, a reader.” — Alberto Manguel

Library Related Quotation

I would walk into the Carnegie Library and I would see the pictures of Booker T and pictures of Fredrick Douglass and I would read. I would go into

the stacks and see all of the newspapers from all over the country. Did I dream that I would be on the Supreme Court? No. But I dreamt that there was a world out there

that was worth pursuing.

 

                                                                           — Clarence Thomas,

                                                                                 US Supreme Court Justice


 

 

Library Quotation


My alma mater was books, a good

library… I could spend the rest of my life reading, just satisfying my curiosity.

 

       — Malcolm X

                                from

                                                 “The Autobiograpy of Malcolm X”


 

Library Quotations

Books constitute capital. A library book lasts as long as a house, for hundreds of years. It is not, then, an article of mere consumption but fairly of capital, and often in the case of professional men, setting out in life, it is their only capital.

             — Thomas Jefferson

 

Library Quotations

The library is not a shrine for the worship of books. It is not a temple where literary incense must be burned or where one’s devotion to the bound book is expressed in ritual. A library, to modify the famous metaphor of Socrates, should be the delivery room for the birth of ideas – a place where history comes to life .

— Norman COUSINS (1915- 1990)
