Quotations by Lowell, Amy

All books are either dreams or swords,
You can cut, or you can drug, with words.

More quotes by Lowell, Amy

For books are more than books, they are the life
The very heart and core of ages past,
The reason why men lived and worked and died,
The essence and quintessence of their lives.

Amy Lowell (1874-1925) American poet
“The Boston Athenaeum,” A Dome of Many-Coloured Glass (1912)
