  1. I love the one about the old coat. Every time I ponder a purchase I consider how many books I could buy with the money.

  2. I love the quote - "knowledge is free at the library, just bring your own bag" - that is just so true!!!

  3. Ya gotta love Groucho Marx! Thanks for the great quotes :)

  4. I love that Groucho Marx quote, too. One of my coworkers has it for his email sig line!

  5. Excellent quotes. I like the O'Rourke one best!

  6. What a great list of quotes, some of them are going up on my wall!

  7. Glad y'all enjoyed some of the quotes. They say a lot about readers and their relationships with books and libraries, don't they?

  8. Let me add one of my favs from Winston Churchill "A man (person) can move a mountain with words." Sam, your words move people to books that move mountains.

  9. That's a great Churchill quote, Howard...and thanks for your kind words.
