A book is a friend; a good book is a good friend. It will talk to you when you want it to talk, and it will keep still when you want it to keep still – and there are not many friends who know enough to do that.

Lyman Abbott 1835-1922

quoted in Thoughts That Inspire, (2009) Vol II, compiled by George H Knox
