"A library is thought in cold storage"--Herbert Samuel; "A mans library is a sort of harem, and tender readers have a great pudency in showing their books to a stranger"--Ralph Waldo Emerson; "A circulating library in a town is, as an evergreen tree of diabolical knowledge!"--Richard Brinsley Sheridan. This is a sampling of quotes under Libraries, one of over 450 topics. These quotes and anecdotes represent many countries, cultures and periods of history: 4,600+ profound, provocative or witty education-related utterances, some of historical interest, others insightful into todays world--most by noneducators--alphabetical by topic (from Ability to Zeal).
