I recently ran across these ancient Chinese proverbs about books and thought I'd share them. Don't expect too much, as they're fairly simple. But elegant.
A book holds a house of gold.
A book is like a garden carried in the pocket.
A book tightly shut is but a block of paper.
Kindle users can maybe adapt that last proverb into something like "A Kindle not switched on is but an expensive paperweight."
