608 – “Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counselors, and the most patient of teachers.”

–Charles W Eliot

Quote Number:  769

Source Notes: While alone this is a really nice quote, in the context of the rest of the work it is kind of elitist, although not significantly more than any educated person would have held at publication.
