Books are all very well in their way, and we love them at Sagamore Hill; but children are better than books.
 Theodore Roosevelt, Theodore Roosevelt; an Autobiography (1913). copy citation

Context

“I often enjoy a story by some living author so much that I write to tell him so—or to tell her so; and at least half the time I regret my action, because it encourages the writer to believe that the public shares my views, and he then finds that the public doesn't.
Books are all very well in their way, and we love them at Sagamore Hill; but children are better than books. Sagamore Hill is one of three neighboring houses in which small cousins spent very happy years of childhood. In the three houses there were at one time sixteen of these small cousins, all told, and once we ranged them in order of size and took their photograph.” source
