Books that have become classics

“Books that have become classics - books that have had their day and now get more praise than perusal - always remind me of retired colonels and majors and captains who, having reached the age limit, find themselves retired on half pay.” -

Thomas Bailey Aldrich in Leaves from a Notebook, Ponkapog Papers (1903)

Quoted from A Dictionary of Library and Information Science Quotations. Edited by Mohamed Taher & L S Ramaiah (New Delhi , Aditya, 1994) p. 6. See
