Historians & their books


Homage to the Book

You think your pain and your heartbreak are unprecedented in the history of the world, but then you read. It was books that taught me that the things that tormented me most were the very things that connected me with all the people who were alive, who had ever been alive.” – James Baldwin

One book calls to another unexpectedly, creating alliances across different cultures and centuries. ”

― Alberto Manguel

Books are everywhere; and always the same sense of adventure fills us. Second-hand books are wild books, homeless books; they have come together in vast flocks of variegated feather, and have a charm which the domesticated volumes of the library lack – Virginia Woolf  

A room without books is like a body without a soul. – Cicero

A book is like a garden carried in the pocket. – Chinese Proverb

A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies. The man who never reads lives only one. – George Martin
