A Quote by Alfred Edward Newton on reading and books

Even when reading is impossible, the presence of books acquired (by passionate devotion to them) produces such an ecstasy that the buying of more books than one can peradventure read is nothing less than the soul reaching towards infinity ... we cherish books even if unread, their mere presence exudes comfort, their ready access, reassurance.

A Quote by Alfred Edward Newton on discovery and happiness

A Quote by Alfred Edward Newton on confidence, happiness, home, life, love, and world

If this world affords true happiness, it is to be found in a home where love and confidence increase with the years, where the necessities of life come without severe strain, where luxuries enter only after their cost has been carefully considered.
