My books hold between their covers every story I've ever known and still remember, or have now forgotten, or may one day read; they fill the space around me with ancient and new voices.
Alberto Manguel
Digestion of words as well; I often read aloud to myself in my writing corner in the library, where no one can hear me, for the sake of better savouring the text, so as to make it all the more mine.
Alberto Manguel
I don't remember ever feeling lonely; in fact, on the rare occasions when I met other children I found their games and their talk far less interesting than the adventures and dialogues I read in my books.
Alysha Speer
When a poet settled down to write a poem, could he foresee the lines he would write? Did his head constantly spin with riddles and rhymes and was his only job to put them down? What if he couldn't get them to make sense, and no one, not even the person he cared for most, could have pleasure in reading it? What would he do?
Amaka Imani Nkosazana

It's amazing how the more you read, the less you know.
Anthony T. Hincks
When you read between the lines, you must have bloody good eyesight because I can't see a bloody thing!
Ari Berk
He passed his hands over some of the fine embossed bindings as he thought, I am a book also, words and thoughts and stories held together by flesh. We open and close ourselves to the world. We are read by others or put away by them. We wait to be seen, sitting quietly on shelves for someone to bother having a look inside us.
Arturo Pérez-Reverte
A medida que transcurría el tiempo, se afirmaba en la certeza de que el mundo y la vida eran más fáciles de entender a través de un libro.
Ben Oliveira
[...] She knew it a book it was not just a book. Everything had a meaning. There was an invisible web that connected the words. It was like magic
Besa Kosova
A homeless man visited my store today. The few quarters that he had in his pocket he invested on books. I offered him free books, but he insisted on giving me his quarters. He walked away filled with joy as if he possessed the world's riches in his hands. In a way, he did. He left me smiling and knowing that he was wealthier than many others... (01-21-10)
Betty Smith
The library was a little old shabby place. Francie thought it was beautiful. The feeling she had about it was as good as the feeling she had about church. She pushed open the door and went in. She liked the combined smell of worn leather bindings, library past and freshly inked stamping pads better than she liked the smell of burning incense at high mass.
Bill Maher
To most Christians, the Bible is like a software license. Nobody actually reads it. They just scroll to the bottom and click 'I agree'.
Brad Jensen
Fall into the cavern of my mind, and together there, we will dine.
Brad Jensen
Pull back the curtain and jump down the rabbit hole.
Carol Emshwiller
Ah, but is it not the mind that is the real grace of Homo sapiens? All the things to think about! All the things to read and appreciate! All the arts! All the things of the spirit!
Charles Haddon Spurgeon
Give yourself unto reading. The man who never reads will never be read; he who never quotes will never be quoted. He who will not use the thoughts of other men's brains, proves that he has no brains of his own. You need to read.
Christian Bauman
Reading was a joy, a desperately needed escape -- I didn't read to learn, I was reading to read.
Christina Engela
Villainessa Tittel was a hired killer, an assassin by trade. She had enjoyed the best education and had been trained by assassins who had (until then at least) been considered the best in the business. She had turned to 'cleaning' as an occupation because she really enjoyed endings more than beginnings
Clifton Fadiman
Reading to small children is a specialty.
Craig Ferguson
School did give me one of the greatest gifts of my life, though. I learned how to read, and for that I remain thankful. I would have died otherwise. As soon as I was able, I read, alone. Under the covers with a flashlight or in my corner of the attic

Darnell Lamont Walker
I don't trust people without books or questions.
David Denby
If you don't read books, and if you don't get consumed by the physical and moral life of men and women in fiction and history, too many facets of yourself may never come into being.
Dejan Stojanovic
To hear never-heard sounds, To see never-seen colors and shapes, To try to understand the imperceptible Power pervading the world; To fly and find pure ethereal substances That are not of matter But of that invisible soul pervading reality. To hear another soul and to whisper to another soul; To be a lantern in the darkness Or an umbrella in a stormy day; To feel much more than know. To be the eyes of an eagle, slope of a mountain; To be a wave understanding the influence of the moon; To be a tree and read the memory of the leaves; To be an insignificant pedestrian on the streets Of crazy cities watching, watching, and watching. To be a smile on the face of a woman And shine in her memory As a moment saved without planning.
Denise Robbins
Life's adventures make great reading!
Deyth Banger
Reading is not like this... read and read without understanding you just want to finish the book... I had such moments but it's the worst decision ever made. The reading should be process in which you go deeper and deeper, you understand it... you like it... you try to be the same character.... you enjoy it and you want more and more... you have more and more curiousity.
Edward Bunker
Sono convinto che chi non legge resta uno stupido. Anche se nella vita sa destreggiarsi, il fatto di non ingerire regolarmente parole scritte lo condanna ineluttabilmente all'ignoranza, indipendentemente dai suoi averi e dalle sue attività.
Enock Maregesi
Novelists and the literary world play an important part in shaping languages. The Swahili they write influence the readers and their languages. The literary obstacle in Tanzania is not that people do not read, but that they don't read because there are no interesting writers.
Enock Maregesi
Write as much as you can. Read as much as you can. Use the library and the internet carefully for research and talk to people about things that matter. If you have an idea in your head talk it to people as a normal conversation, to get their natural opinions. And don't forget to jot down discreetly any new ideas you get from people. God may use other people to convey messages to you, that may add more information to the ideas you already have.
Erik Pevernagie
What a wonderful world it could be, when spiritual factions would choose to read sacred writings as colorful metaphors and not as bloody declarations of war. (Is heaven a place in the sky?)
Ernest Hemingway

Eudora Welty
Two by two, I read library books as fast as I could go, rushing them home in the basket of my bicycle. From the minute I reached our house, I started to read. Every book I seized on stood for the devouring wish to read being instantly granted. I knew this was bliss, knew it at the time. Taste isn't nearly so important; it comes in its own time. I wanted to read immediately. The only fear was that of books coming to an end.
Gabrielle Dubois
What's happiness for a reader? Be pleasantly surprised by a book from which he expected nothing.
Gabrielle Dubois

Gabrielle Dubois
Desire may cease once the desired person or object is acquired. The desire of reading doesn't cease once a book is read, however extraordinary this one was.
Gabrielle Dubois
The reader leaves his mark on the book, as the book leaves its mark on the reader.
Genesis Quihuis
My next option is to only write a list of the books I like, but then again, I don't read a book I don't like so it doesn't solve any of my problems.
George R.R. Martin

Men are mere mortals but their quest for knowledge leads them to the brink of immortality.Excerpt from novel You Can't Escape Love by Grace Willows
Heather Demetrios
I thought of all the summer evenings I'd spent sitting in the chairs under the trees beside the trailer, reading books that helped me escape Creek View, at least for a little while. Magical kingdoms, Russian love triangles, and the March sisters couldn't have been further away from the trailer park.

You can't give what you don't have. To write, you must read. To write well, read well.
J. Wrice Sr.
If you can't participate in someone else's good fortune and show them love. How can you get offended when they don't partake in yours. Good fortunes are made to be enjoyed. Like a old wise pimp will say Don't hate, participate.
James D. Sass
I would rather read a mediocre book than waste time sitting around with people making small talk.

Jennifer Loren
No, but I do read a lot. I love to read. I could read for days and never stop. I use to be such a bookworm. I would barely look up to notice much of anything.

Books are like ice cream; there is a flavor for everyone!
Kamand Kojouri
I began to write because of love. I wrote to understand what I felt and what I knew.
Kamand Kojouri
Think not of the fragility of life, but of the power of books, when mere words can change our lives simply by being next to each other.
Kamand Kojouri
She might not have read many books. But when she reads a book, she swallows the very words. If you open the books on her shelves, you will find that the front and back covers encase white pages.
Kamand Kojouri
Because at nightwhen others are sleeping, I drown myself in poetry.
Kamand Kojouri
If I had to choose between all the books in the world and you, then I would choose to read your body for the rest of my life.
Kamand Kojouri
If you write then you are reborn because by writing about the moment, you can relive it for a second time.
Kamand Kojouri
Oh, how scary and wonderful it is that words can change our lives simply by being next to each other.
Kamand Kojouri
What is life? Life is living in this moment, experiencing and experimenting but experience isn't life. Life is reflecting and meditating but reflection isn't life. Life is helping and guiding but philanthropy isn't life. Life is eating and drinking but food isn't life. Life is reading and dancing but art isn't life. Life is kissing and pleasuring but sex isn't life. Life is winning and losing but competition isn't life. Life is loving and caring but love isn't life. Life is birthing and nurturing but children aren't life. Life is letting go and surrendering but death isn't life. Life is all these things but all these things aren't life. Life is always more.
Kamand Kojouri
There is no revelation in my words. I am merely stating what others have forgotten to write down.
Kamand Kojouri
Sit here, so I may writeyou into a poem and make you eternal.
Kamand Kojouri
Sometimes, when inspiration runs dry, I drink classical music until my words spill out.
Kamand Kojouri
It is a dangerous thing to substitute reading or writing for living. Live first, then write.
Kamand Kojouri
For what was it about books that once finished left the reader in a bit of a haze and made them reread the last few sentences in order to continue the ringing in their hearts a while longer, so as not to let the silence illumine the fact that reading, they had gained something
Kamand Kojouri
Think not of the fragility of life, but of the power of books, when mere words have the ability to change our lives simply by being next to each other.
Kamand Kojouri
I am going to build a fortress of books.Will you come inside and live with me?
Kamand Kojouri
Reading poetry is like undressing before a bath. You don't undress out of fear that your clothes will become wet. You undress because you want the water to touch you. You want to completely immerse yourself in the feeling of the water and to emerge anew.
Kamand Kojouri
We are all born as storytellers. Our inner voice tells the first story we ever hear.

It had been a good day, all things considered. I had managed rather well on my own. I opened Grandfather's Bible. This is what it would be like when I had my own shop, or when I traveled abroad. I would always read before sleeping. One day, I'd be so rich I would have a library full of novel to choose from. But I would always end the evening with a Bible passage.

Liz Newman
I run my fingers down the spines of old books and ancient tales. I smell the ink and feel the pages as I delicately peer at the words and paragraphs. Each book home to a story, giving its characters immortality. I smile and think that perhaps someday, I will make a home out of these pages too. And sit on a shelf, ready and waiting to share my story with the next reader.

Without knowing it, the adults in our lives practiced a most productive kind of behavior modification. After our chores and household duties were done we were give permission to read. In other words, our elders positioned reading as a privilege - a much sought-after prize, granted only to those goodhardworkers who earned it. How clever of them.

My mother, who taught me how to read and write and home-schooled me for the first 12 years of my life, whose presence shaped me as much as her absence did, who imbibed in me the values of empathy and fearlessness and hard work, looks down on me today with great pride.
