Quotes about Libraries

I came upon a book at our library staff meeting today, the Librarian's Book of Quotes. A few gems from this collection: 

From his refined accent, quiet voice and apparent omniscience, I took him for a librarian. 
George Orwell, Author

A university is just a group of buildings gathered around a library. The Library is the University.
Shelby Foote, author

You must live feverishly in a library. Colleges are not going to do you any good unless you are raised and live in a library every day of your life. 
Ray Bradbury, author
This is a library. Kids and adventurers welcome. All others STAY OUT.
Dean Koontz, author

And one I heard myself, walking through the halls several years ago:
     "Oh, the library. Where the serious people go." (Anonymous)
