A great book should leave you with many experiences, and slightly exhausted at the end. You live several lives while reading.
Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counselors, and the most patient of teachers.
Books make great gifts because they have whole worlds inside of them. And it’s much cheaper to buy somebody a book than it is to buy them the whole world!
That’s the thing about books. They let you travel without moving your feet.
“If there’s a book that you want to read, but it hasn’t been written yet, then you must write it.”
Classic’ – a book which people praise and don’t read.
