15 wonderful quotes about libraries… in libraries (pictures)

Quotes about libraries - Mark Twain - Stuttgart City Library

These brilliant images combine human wisdom with where it originates from.

All quotes were collected and images designed by Daniel Dalton, writer and editor from Sydney, Australia.

Daniel originally shared a couple of library quotes on Tumblr last year. Due to a huge popularity, he created new images. The entire collection (28 quotes altogether) is available on Buzzfeed. You’ll find there also the names of the beautiful libraries used in the images.

Our new favorite library quote is:

Libraries will get you through times of no money better than money will get you through times of no libraries.

–Anne Herbert
