Words Linked Together CAN Speak Volumes

If you're looking for that perfect holiday quote to include inside your holiday greeting card, visit the Quotations About Librarians site. Here are three of my favorites. (via The Laughinglibrarian)

"Most people don't realize how important librarians are. I ran across a book recently which suggested that the peace and prosperity of a culture was solely related to how many librarians it contained. Possibly a slight overstatement. But a culture that doesn't value its librarians doesn't value ideas and without ideas, well, where are we?"
Neil Gaiman
(The Sandman. Line spoken by Lucien, Librarian of the Dreaming.
Submitted by Trey Bunn.)

"A librarian is a person who helps peopleand dinosaurs — at the library."
Mark S. Bernthal
(Barney and Baby Bop Go to the Library. Lyrick, 1999)

"Man, who'd have thought being a librarian could be so tough?"
  (Andromeda episode, "Harper 2.0."
 Line spoken by Gordon Michael Woolvett as Seamus Harper.
 Submitted by C.E. of Texas)
