Quotes About Reading / Books

"A house without books is like a room without windows.  No man has a right to bring up his children without surrounding them with books, if he has the means to buy them.  It is a wrong to his family. Children learn to read by being in the presence of books.  The love of knowledge comes with reading and grows upon it.  And the love of knowledge, in a young mind, is almost a warrant against the inferior excitement of passions and vices."

Horace Mann

"We ought to reverence books; to look on them as useful and mighty things.— If they are good and true, whether they are about religion, politics, farming, trade, law, or medicine, they are the message of Christ, the maker of all things—the teacher of all truth."

Charles Kingsley
