There are books which have fallen into oblivion undeservedly; nevertheless, there is none who came undeservedly again to recollection.
(Wystan Hugh Auden)
The more one reads, the better one is informed about the book offer, the clearer one becomes one, like few many books in the remaining twenty, thirty, forty, fifty, sixty, seventy years can still read. This presses the mind. There passes itself to the most willing book reader the appetite.
Joseph von Westphalen
The humanity is a book which is put on over and over again by new one, without view to become one day a best-seller.
»The Missliche in new books is that they stop us from reading the old ones.«
»However, the usual, but passionate reader may forget, come back disloyally his with other authors, and be delighted by new one.«
