"Consider what you have in the smallest chosen library A company of the wisest and wittiest men that could be picked out of all civil countries, in a thousand years, have set in best order the results of their learning and wisdom. The men themselves were hid and inaccessible, solitary, impatient of interruption, fenced by etiquette; but the thought, which they did not uncover to their bosom friend, is here written out in transparent words to us, the strangers of another age." - Ralph Waldo Emerson

"Other relaxations are peculiar to certain times, places, and stages of life, but the study of letters is the nourishment of our youth, and the joy of our old age. They throw an additional splendor on prosperity, and are the resource and consolation of adversity; they delight at home, and are no embarrassment abroad; in short, they are company to us at night, our fellow travelers on a journey, and attendants in our rural recesses." - Marcus Tullius Cicero

"There, is first, the literature of knowledge; and, secondly, the literature of power. The function of the first is, to teach; the second is, to move; the first is a rudder, the second an oar or a sail. The first speaks to the mere discursive understanding; the second speaks ultimately to the higher understanding or reason, but always through affections of pleasure and sympathy." - Thomas de Quincey

[Quote No.18647] Need Area: Fun > Books
"Legitimately produced, and truly inspired, fiction interprets humanity, informs the understanding, and quickens the affections. It reflects ourselves, warns us against prevailing social follies, adds rich specimens to our cabinets of character, dramatizes life for the unimaginative, daguerreotypes it for the unobservant, multiplies experience for the isolated or inactive, and cheers age, retirement, and invalidism with an available and harmless solace." - Henry Theodore Tuckerman

[Quote No.18648] Need Area: Fun > Books
"Before I translated the New Testament out of the Greek, all longed after it; when it was done, their longing lasted scarce four weeks. Then they desired the books of Moses; when I had translated these, they had enough thereof in a short time. After that, they would have the Psalms; of these they were soon weary, and desired other books. So it will be with the book of Ecclesiastes, which they now long for, and about which I have taken great pains. All is acceptable until our giddy brains are satisfied; afterwards we let familiar things lie, and seek after new." - Martin Luther

"I had toward the poetic art a peculiar relation which was only practical after I had cherished in my mind for a long time a subject which possessed me, a model which inspired me, a predecessor who attracted me, until at length, after I had molded it in silence for years, something resulted which might be regarded as a creation of mine; and finally, all at once, and almost instinctively, as if it had become ripe, I set it down on paper." - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

"For all good poetry is the spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings: and though this be true, poems to which any value can be attached were never produced on any variety of subjects but by a man who, being possessed of more than usual organic sensibly, had also thought long and deeply. I have said that poetry is the spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings; it takes its origin from emotion recollected in tranquillity; the emotion is contemplated till, by a species of re-action, the tranquillity gradually disappears, and an emotion, kindred to that which was before subject of contemplation, is gradually produced, and does itself actually in the mind." - William Wordsworth

[Quote No.18998] Need Area: Fun > Books
"There are other similarities between poetry and children's speech. Poets tend to look for significant evocative detail - something straight out of life - to carry their meaning, and to avoid the vaguely general or abstract terms. With young children it is not a matter of choice. Their ideas must take a concrete form of expression because they have not mastered the art of masking and handling [Sign - mind] abstraction. A five - year - old boy in an infant's class once said, 'Oh, yes, I know Geography. Its polar bears at the top and penguins at the bottom'." - James Britton
