franklin Benjamin Franklin: The Autobiography
[Frederick:] "... Literature is the whole world; it is the expression of the gross, the fatuous, and the foolish, and it is the pleasure of the gross, the fatuous, and the foolish, as well as the expression and the pleasure of the wise, the fine, the elect. Let the multitude have their truck, their rubbish, their rot; it may not be the truck, the rubbish, the rot that it would be to us, or may slowly and by natural selection become to certain of them. But let there be no artificial selection, no survival of the fittest my main force—the force of the spectator, who thinks he knows better than the creator of the ugly and the beautiful, the fair and foul, the evil and good."

howells Zitate William Dean Howells
"Am liebsten las ich Reise und Entdeckungsberichte, flog auf meinen Pantoffeln um die ganze Welt, durchquerte fieberverseuchte Kontinente, erforschte Vulkane, geriet in Taifune und verlief mich in fernöstlichen Städten mit scharf riechenden Pfeffermagazinen, dämmrigen Opiumhöhlen und wüsten Hafenkaschemmen."

Der Vater des Ich-Erzählers in Tanzende Araber sitzt im Gefängnis und ist dankbar für eine sechsmonatige Haftverlängerung um die er selbst gebeten hatte. In der Gefängnisbibliothek gibt es noch soviele Bücher, die es noch zu lesen gilt. In einem Brief an seine Mutter bittet er um ein englisch-hebräisches Wörterbuch. Er schreibt ihr, dass er die Gefängnisbibliothek nur verlässt, wenn jemand mit ihm Schach spielt.

Zurück zur Rezension von Modick Klaus Modick: Vierundzwanzig Türen
"The library itself was doing a bustling business, mostly with women bringing their young children in to look at books, but also the usual collection of homeless and elderly that a library gathers. It's a respectable destination. It's warm, you can be with other people. All reasons why the Web cannot take the place of your branch library. Also it had books. And an archivist who knew and loved his collection."
Paretsky Sara Paretsky: Blacklist, S. 145-46 – Paretsky weitere Zitate daraus
Pierre Pierre Péju: Die kleine Kartäuserin, handelt von einem Buchhändler, der einem Mädchen im Koma Literatur vorträgt.
And most important there was a most excellent english library with all sorts of strange biographies which were to Gertrude Stein a source of endless pleasure. She once told me that when she was young she had read so much, read from the Elizabethans to the moderns, that she was terribly uneasy lest some day she would be without anything to read. For years this fear haunted her but in one way and another although she always reads and reads she seems always to find more to read. Her eldest brother used to complain that although he brought up from Florence every day as many books as he could carry, there always were just as many to take back.
