For The Love Of Libraries

FOR THE LOVE OF LIBRARIES

“From places to go for kindly advice to havens of hush, libraries play a special role in cultural life. Here are 10 classic quotes:
Without libraries we have no past and no future.” – Ray Bradbury

“A public library is the most enduring of memorials, the trustiest monument for the preservation of an event or a name or an affection; for it, and it only, is respected by wars and revolutions, and survives them.” – Mark Twain

“With a library you are free, not confined by temporary political climates. It is the most democratic of institutions because no one – but no one at all – can tell you what to read and when and how.” – Doris Lessing

“I have always imagined that Paradise will be a kind of library.” – Jorge Luis Borges

“The very existence of libraries affords the best evidence that we may yet have hope for the future of man.” – TS Eliot

“I ransack public libraries, and find them full of sunk treasure.” – Virginia Woolf

“The only thing that you absolutely have to know, is the location of the library.” –Albert Einstein

“Whatever the cost of our libraries, the price is cheap compared to that of an ignorant nation.” – Walter Cronkite

“I always knew from that moment, from the time I found myself at home in that little segregated library in the South, all the way up until I walked up the steps of the New York City library, I always felt, in any town, if I can get to a library, I’ll be OK. It really helped me as a child, and that never left me.” – Maya Angelou

“People can lose their lives in libraries. They ought to be warned.” – Saul Bellow
