Re: [BKARTS] Sayings or proverbs with books?



"When the book is closed the book is closed" meaning our/your/its fate is sealed. Part of the Yom Kippur ritual referring to God's books in which all our names are inscribed and with them, his judgment and our fate for the coming year.

I always liked that quote myself, and try to live by it.

Talking about books on books, what expressions, sayings or proverbs are
there that contain or refer to books?


Like, in German, there's "a book with seven seals" for something or someone
you don't understand, or "like an open book" for someone who doesn't manage
to hide anything.


Cheers,
