C.N. Douglas, comp.  Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical.  1917.
William Godwin
  He that loves reading has everything within his reach. He has but to desire, and he may possess himself of every species of wisdom to judge and power to perform.  1
  He that revels in a well-chosen library has innumerable dishes, and all of admirable flavor.  2
  In a well-written book we are presented with the maturest reflections, or the happiest flights of a mind of uncommon excellence. It is impossible that we can be much accustomed to such companions without attaining some resemblance to them.  3
  Literature, taken in all its bearings, forms the grand line of demarcation between the human and the animal kingdoms.  4
