O followers of the Book! indeed Our Apostle has come to you making clear to you much of what you concealed of the Book and passing over much; indeed, there has come to you light and a clear Book from Allah; / With it Allah guides him who will follow His pleasure into the ways of safety and brings them out of utter darkness into light by His will and guides them to the right path. (Quote by - quran)

Every day that goes by shortens our opportunity of booking it successfully. Whether it's members pulling their condos for personal use, whether it's a convention booking our conference center, whether it's golf packages being booked .. not hearing makes it that much harder to accommodate them. (Quote by - Jay Overton)

The true University of these days is a Collection of Books. (Quote by - Thomas Carlyle)

Everything in this store benefits my kids. Those books go into the classroom. I had a little boy who wanted a book a day for a home library. He could not wait to pick up (another) book. (Quote by - Barbara Bosser)

Books are the quietest and most constant of friends and the most patient of teachers. (Quote by - Charles W. Eliot)

I do not hesitate to read all good books in translations. What is really best in any book is translatable -- any real insight or broad human sentiment. (Quote by - Ralph Waldo Emerson)

A book might be written on the injustice of the just. (Quote by - Anthony Hope)

He it is Who shapes you in the wombs as He likes; there is no god but He, the Mighty, the Wise / He it is Who has revealed the Book to you; some of its verses are decisive, they are the basis of the Book, and others are allegorical; then as for those in whose hearts there is perversity they follow the part of it which is allegorical, seeking to mislead and seeking to give it (their own) interpretation. but none knows its interpretation except Allah, and those who are firmly rooted in knowledge say: We believe in it, it is all from our Lord; and none do mind except those having understanding. (Quote by - quran)

A movie is not a book. If the source material is a book, you cannot be too respectful of the book. All you owe to the book is the spirit. (Quote by - Graham Greene)

Man ceased to be an ape, vanquished the ape, on the day the first book was written. (Quote by - Yevgeny Zamyatin)

The house is, in fact, something of a shrine to the passion that has consumed Corrigan's life, from her literature-saturated childhood in Sunnyside through her current career as a teacher and critic (in addition to her NPR gig, she pens a column on mysteries for The Washington Post and reviews for other publications, including Newsday). As she confesses in the just-published Leave Me Alone, I'm Reading: Finding and Losing Myself in Books .. When I'm in the company of others - even my nearest and dearest - there always comes a moment when I'd rather be reading a book. (Quote by - Random House)

Paperbacks weren't considered real books in the book trade. Up till then it was just murder mysteries, potboilers, 25-cent pocket books sold in newsstands. When the New York publishers started publishing quality paperbacks, there was no place to buy them. (Quote by - Lawrence Ferlinghetti)

Books are but waste paper unless we spend in action the wisdom we get from thought. (Quote by - Edward Bulwer-Lytton)

As good business people, we'd be silly not to tap into every fan of the book and hope they will become a fan of the movie. We don't believe we're making a Christian movie. We believe we're following the story of the book faithfully and allowing everyone to interpret it how they want depending on how they've connected to the book. (Quote by - Dennis Rice)

A lot of people do cakes and just decorate the cake to look like a book. I have made brittle book in the past. There have been books made out of cold cuts and one was made out of chocolate and used a licorice binding. (Quote by - Victoria Heiduschke)

It is easier to buy books than to read them, and easier to read them than to absorb them. (Quote by - William Osler)

The reality is, just like with adult books, a big name makes for an easier booking. Any time you're booking an author for a four-and-a-half to five-minute segment, if you're dealing with someone who's done television or comes with a track record, they are a known quantity. They know they have to have a funny or a touching story. (Quote by - Kristin Matthews)

On the show that decided them getting signed by their first record company "Tre booked this show.. and he booked this show on a mountain top in Mendocino county. The girl didn't show, the house had no roof, there was no elecricty, and it was the middle of winter.. and this is our preformance for Look Out Records. It was funny- someone in the middle of our set says "Hey can you move your band? I need to get my car out of here.". (Quote by - Green Day)

There are books so alive that you're always afraid that while you weren't reading, the book has gone and changed, has shifted like a river; while you went on living, it went on living too, and like a river moved on and moved away. No one has stepped twice into the same river. But did anyone ever step twice into the same book?. (Quote by - Marina Tsvetaeva)

Books are good enough in their own way, but they are a poor substitute for life. (Quote by - Robert Louis Stevenson)

We do not belong to those who only get their thought from books, or at the prompting of books, -- it is our custom to think in the open air, walking, leaping, climbing, or dancing on lonesome mountains by preference, or close to the sea, where even the paths become thoughtful. (Quote by - Friedrich Nietzsche)

He who studies books alone will know how things ought to be, and he who studies men will know how they are. (Quote by - C. C. Colton)

While Ghost Rider .. Another 'Kev' series from Wildstorm, featuring Carlos Ezquerra's best art in years; a third Punisher special, 'The Tyger,' drawn by John Severin; 'Nick Fury in World War Two,' six issues by Darick Robertson; a four-issue 'JLA Classified' arc featuring Tommy Monaghan, effectively the lost Hitman story; a new book from Avatar called 'Wormwood,' starring the Antichrist (he gets a bad rap); 'Back to Brooklyn,' a crime book with Jimmy Palmiotti; a new creator-owned ongoing book with Darick Robertson, 'The Boys'; a western called 'Trail of Tears'-- a much darker, more brutal book than the one about to come out; and just started writing a new limited series for Axel [Alonso] at Marvel. Very pleased with it so far. Finally, of course, there's the regular 'Punisher' book, which is just about to start a new storyline, 'The Slavers.' Frank Castle, the character I was born to write. Who'da thunk it?. (Quote by - Garth Ennis)

The profit of books is according to the sensibility of the reader. The profoundest thought or passion sleeps as in a mine, until an equal mind and heart finds and publishes it. (Quote by - Ralph Waldo Emerson)
