Muriel Barbery
“Personally I think that grammar is a way to attain beauty.”
Muriel Barbery, The Elegance of the Hedgehog

Groucho Marx
“Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend. Inside of a dog it's too dark to read.”
Groucho Marx, The Essential Groucho: Writings For By And About Groucho Marx

Carlos Ruiz Zafón
“I stepped into the bookshop and breathed in that perfume of paper and magic that strangely no one had ever thought of bottling.”
Carlos Ruiz Zafón, The Angel's Game

Muriel Barbery
“I thought: pity the poor in spirit who know neither the enchantment nor the beauty of language.”
Muriel Barbery, The Elegance of the Hedgehog

Hilary Thayer Hamann
“Mr. O'Donnell was at the library counter, performing the sort of grim rituals librarians perform with index cards and stumpy pencils and those rubber stamps with columns of rotating numbers. "Ms. Auerbach! What will it be today? Camus? Cervantes?" "Actually I'm looking for a book of poetry by Emily Dickinson"

He paused somberly, toying with the twirled tip of his mustache. No matter how seriously librarians are engaged in their work, they are always glad to be interrupted when the theme is books. It makes no difference to them how simple the search is or how behind on time either of you might be running - they consider all queries scrupulously. They love to have their knowledge tested. They lie in wait, they will not be rushed.”
Hilary Thayer Hamann, Anthropology of an American Girl
