Outside of a dog a book is a men's best friend, inside a dog it is too dark too read. - Groucho Marx
Some say life is the thing, but I prefer reading. --Ruth Rendell
What refuge is there for the victim who is oppressed with the feeling that there are a thousand new books he ought to read while life is only long enough for him to attempt to read a hundred.
~Oliver Wendell Holmes Snr 1809-1894, Over the Teacups (1891)
"The Bookworm's Prayer"

Now I read me off to sleep
I pray the Lord my place to keep
If I should roll before I wake
I pray the Lord my book won't break.

-- John F. Eldredge -- eldredge@poboxes.com (in the rec.arts.sf.written newsgroup)
[...] this is but another proof that the Written Word is a Fairy, as mocking
and elusive as Willy Wisp, speaking lying words to us in a feigned voice. So
let all readers of books take warning! And with this final exhortation this
book shall close.
       --  Last words of Hope Mirrlees' Lud-in-the-Mist
