Book in Hand Is Worth Two in the Library Quotations on Books and Librarianship






Publisher:  McFarland & Company, Incorporated Publishers
Summary: Over the years, political leaders, literary figures, philosophers, and yes, the most quoted person of all, "anonymous, " have had a lot to say about libraries and books. Some are semiserious: "Blessings upon Cadmus, the Phoenicians, or whoever it was that invented books"--Thomas Carlyle (1795-1881); some biting: "What is responsible for the success of many works is the rapport between the mediocrity of the authors id...eas and the mediocrity of the publics"--Nicholas Chamfort (1741-1794). And a few are surprisingly revealing: "A library makes me sick"--Friedrich Nietzsche (1844-1900). Collected here are hundreds of quotes about libraryland.
