This one is a silly one from the tv show Futurama.

You trying to tell me you didn't hear that shriek? That was something trying to get out of its premature grave, and I don't want to be here when it does. - Phantom of the Paradise (1974)

One glance at a book and you hear the voice of another person, perhaps someone dead for 1,000 years. To read is to voyage through time. - Carl Sagan

I like this quote because this is exactly why I love to collect antique books. It's the closest to the original writer as we can get.

Yes, indeed, so true.

And since we're talking about books, here's something from another great quote source, the one and only Groucho Marx:

"Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend. Inside of a dog it's too dark to read."

Another good one from Maya Angelou:

"If you don’t like something, change it. If you can’t change it, change your attitude. Don’t complain."
