How can we live a life without books?! Books are mentioned in lots of proverbs, in all languages. Here I would like to list some in Chinese.
hǎo shū rú zhì yǒu
A good book is a good friend.
yī běn hǎo shū, xiāng bàn yī shēng
A good book is the best of friends， the same today and forever.
dú shū rú jiāo yǒu, yìng qiú shǎo ér jīng
Books and friends should be few but good.
shú shū shǐ rén chōng shí, jiāo tán shǐ rén jīng míng
By reading we enrich the mind， by conversation we polish it
zé shū rú zé yǒu
Choose an author as you choose a friend.
