Dorothy Parker
“This is not a novel to be tossed aside lightly. It should be thrown with great force.”
Dorothy Parker, The Algonquin Wits

James Baldwin
“You think your pain and your heartbreak are unprecedented in the history of the world, but then you read. It was books that taught me that the things that tormented me most were the very things that connected me with all the people who were alive, or who had ever been alive.”
James Baldwin

Kurt Vonnegut
“And on the subject of burning books: I want to congratulate librarians, not famous for their physical strength or their powerful political connections or their great wealth, who, all over this country, have staunchly resisted anti-democratic bullies who have tried to remove certain books from their shelves, and have refused to reveal to thought police the names of persons who have checked out those titles.

So the America I loved still exists, if not in the White House or the Supreme Court or the Senate or the House of Representatives or the media. The America I love still exists at the front desks of our public libraries.”
Kurt Vonnegut, A Man Without a Country

Louisa May Alcott
“She is too fond of books, and it has turned her brain.”
Louisa May Alcott, Work: A Story of Experience

Horace Mann
“A house without books is like a room without windows.”
Horace Mann
