One of the reasons I love quotes about librarians (besides the fact that I am one of course) is that they break down the hair bun, sensible shoes, glasses wearing stereotype of librarians. Most of us are not like that.
Here are some of my favorites.
~Louis Stanley Jast~ Perhaps the two most valuable and satisfactory products of American civilization are the librarian on the one hand and the cocktail in the other. (JR is getting a T-shirt with this quote on it)
~Spider Robinson~ Librarians are the secret masters of the world. They control information. Don’t ever piss one off. (This is the truth. We can make things very difficult for you)
~ Joseph Brodsky ~There are worse crimes than burning books. One of them is not reading them.
~ Emilie Buchwald ~ Children are made readers on the laps of their parents. (Very true. Please read to your kids)
My all time favorite quote was one that was given to me after having a lovely dinner and visit with The Stiletto Mom. A truly lovely evening made even better with this ending.
~ John Keats ~
