Germaine Greer
“A library is a place where you can lose your innocence without losing your virginity.”
Germaine Greer

Lewis Carroll
“She generally gave herself very good advice, (though she very seldom followed it).”
Lewis Carroll, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland / Through the Looking-Glass

Kurt Vonnegut Jr.
“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

Marcus Tullius Cicero
“A room without books is like a body without a soul.”
Marcus Tullius Cicero

Thea Astley
“The more you try to be interested in other people, the more you find out about yourself.”
Thea Astley
