History books which contain no lies are extremely dull. (Anatole France) All books are divisible into two classes: the book of hour, and the book of all time. (John Ruskin) Reading is to the mind what exercise is to the body. (Richard Steele) A man ought to read just as inclination leads him; for what he reads as a task will do him little good. (Samuel Johnson) A classic is something that everybody wants to have read and nobody wants to read. (Mark Twain) Reading is a vital form of communication with all of mankind, and wisdom of many ages. (Olzhas Suleymenov) Books and friends should be few but good. (a proverb) There;s an old saying that all the world loves a lover. It doesn;t. What all the world loves is a scrap. It wants to see two lovers struggling for one woman. (Annymous)
