„I cannot remember a time when I was not in love with them--with the books themselves, cover and binding and the paper they were printed on, with their smell and their weight and with their possession in my arms, captured and carried off to myself.“

—  Eudora Welty, buch One Writer's Beginnings

One Writer's Beginnings(1984)
Kontext: It had been startling and disappointing to me to find out that story books had been written by people, that books were not natural wonders, coming up of themselves like grass. Yet regardless of where they came from, I cannot remember a time when I was not in love with them -- with the books themselves, cover and binding and the paper they were printed on, with their smell and their weight and with their possession in my arms, captured and carried off to myself.

„A book, once it is printed and published, becomes individual.“

—  James Branch Cabell American author 1879 - 1958

"A Note on Cabellian Harmonics" in Cabellian Harmonics (April 1928)
Kontext: A book, once it is printed and published, becomes individual. It is by its publication as decisively severed from its author as in parturition a child is cut off from its parent. The book "means" thereafter, perforce, — both grammatically and actually, — whatever meaning this or that reader gets out of it.

„Books are not lumps of lifeless paper, but minds alive on shelves!“

—  Gilbert Highet British academic 1906 - 1978

The Immortal Profession: The Joys of Teaching and Learning (1976)
Kontext: These are not books, lumps of lifeless paper, but minds alive on the shelves. From each of them goes out its own voice, as inaudible as the streams of sound conveyed by electric waves beyond the range of our hearing; and just as the touch of button on our stereo will fill the room with music, so by opening one of these volumes, one can call into range a voice far distant in time and space, and hear it speaking, mind to mind, heart to heart.
