The reading of books, and the writing of books, despite current prognostications, appear to have plenty of life in them, and as long as the writing of books continue there will be a need for those silent sentinels, bookmarks to "mark a place. ― Frank X. Roberts, Ph.D., Essays on Bookmarks and Related Topics.

As well as being a functional tool, a bookmark denotes human effort as decisively as a flagstaff planted on Everest. The sliver of paper silently congratulates the conqueror of a world of letters. Deep in a story, suddenly you turn a page and find the marker nagging at your curiosity, like a message in a bottle from a forgotten traveller. ― Nancy Campbell, Thoughts from the Cornfields (blog)

She read her way around the library, hungry for journeys, adventures, laughter and passion. She took each new book to bed like a lover, savouring every chapter, going too far some nights until the letters danced like insects and she was groggy next day at work.

It becomes clear quickly, especially when looking at the home-made bookmarks that there is an intensive and yet largely unexplored relation of the human being to the bookmark. The bookmark changed in the course of time from the mere text marker to a carrier of communication; from a marker for reading it turned into a mark which can be read for itself.― Heidemarie Fischer-Kesselmann
