Let books be your dining table,
And you shall be full of delights
Let them be your mattress
And you shall sleep restful nights.

I'm a riddle in nine syllables,
An elephant, a ponderous house,
A melon strolling on two tendrils.
O red fruit, ivory, fine timbers!
This loaf's big with its yeasty rising.
Money's new-minted in this fat purse.
I'm a means, a stage, a cow in calf.
I've eaten a bag of green apples,
Boarded the train there's no getting off.

A good book on your shelf is a friend that turns its back on you and remains a friend.
