The 05/20/13 Joy Jar

19 May


Moi loves thumbing through books in the sale bin. It is a bit like panning for gold in a river. Quite often moi takes home several jewels which appeal to her even if they did not appeal to other people. There is nothing like the feel and smell of a book. Today’s deposit into the ‘Joy Jar’ are those lonely little books in the sale bin waiting for people to take them home.

Honesty is the first chapter in the book of wisdom.
Thomas Jefferson

The things I want to know are in books; my best friend is the man who’ll get me a book I ain’t read.
Abraham Lincoln

Any book that helps a child to form a habit of reading, to make reading one of his deep and continuing needs, is good for him.

If one cannot enjoy reading a book over and over again, there is no use in reading it at all.
Oscar Wilde

I am mortified to be told that, in the United States of America, the sale of a book can become a subject of inquiry, and of criminal inquiry too.
Thomas Jefferson

He that composes himself is wiser than he that composes a book.
Benjamin Franklin

There is no friend as loyal as a book.
Ernest Hemingway

You cannot open a book without learning something.
