Book Burnings quotes by Geraldine Brooks

Book Burnings quotes by Alena Graedon
#2. tried to understand what I'd seen. I felt as if I'd just stepped out of a limn on twentieth-century book burnings: gaunt, vampiric Goebbels screaming beside a seditious inferno; Stalin; Mao and his Red Guards; Iranian forces in the Republic of Mahabad burning anything in Kurdish; midcentury New York school kids incinerating comics in Binghamton; Ray Bradbury's firemen; apartheid-era librarians; Pinochet; Pol Pot; Serbian nationalists setting fire to the National and University Library. #Quote by Alena Graedon
Book Burnings quotes by Jenny Lawson
#3. Having your book edited is like watching your cat being operated on. It's uncomfortable and someone is probably going to get hurt. Most likely the cat. But in the end, things work out for the best and your cat is better it. And then your cat gets released in hardcover, and you have to read all of his reviews. #Quote by Jenny Lawson

RICHIE:I did decide to write about what i experienced in climbing to the top. And finally when I got there, I discovered what was at the top.You know what was there?

With its two woven threads of joy and pain,
And both were yours before they were begun.. #Quote by Alfred Bruce Douglas

Book 2~Chanson de l'Ange: The Angel's Song #Quote by Paisley Swan Stewart
Book Burnings quotes by James K.A. Smith
#8. You won't be liberated from deformation by new information. God doesn't deliver us from the deformative habit-forming power of tactile rival liturgies by merely giving us a book. Instead, #Quote by James K.A. Smith
Book Burnings quotes by Maralise Andersen
#9. I've learned that instead of sending him to time out for melting down on the ball field, what he really needs is something no behavioral book has recommended, no other parent has suggested.
He really needs me to love him anyway--love him so much that his outbursts are only a small part of the beautiful and gifted person he is. He needs me to see him as more than the sum of his bad behaviors. Sometimes it seems he needs more love than I have to give. But I also feel my capacity expanding. And that gives me hope for my son--and for myself. #Quote by Maralise Andersen
Book Burnings quotes by Samuel Johnson
#10. May, notwithstanding, be questioned whether, except his bible, he ever read a book entirely through. Late in life, if any man praised a book in his presence, he was sure to ask, "Did you read it through?" If the answer was in the affirmative, he did not seem willing to believe it. #Quote by Samuel Johnson
Book Burnings quotes by Tracy Kidder
#11. I tell beginning readers to read a lot and write a lot. If you want to write a book, find a subject that's really worth the time and effort you'll put in. #Quote by Tracy Kidder
Book Burnings quotes by Ibrahim Ibrahim
#12. The inevitable aftermath for being [People Of The Book] is turning into [Worshipers Of The Book]. #Quote by Ibrahim Ibrahim
Book Burnings quotes by Chip Ingram
#13. Slow me down, Lord. Ease the pounding of my heart by the quieting of my mind. Steady my hurried pace with a vision of the eternal reach of time. Give me, amid the confusion of the day, the calmness of the everlasting hills. Break the tensions of my nerves and muscles with the soothing music of the singing streams that live in my memory. Teach me the art of taking minute vacations - of slowing down to look at a flower, to chat with a friend, to pat a dog, to smile at a child, to read a few lines from a good book. Slow me down, Lord, and inspire me to send my roots deep into the soil of life's enduring values, that I may grow toward my greater destiny. Remind me each day that the race is not always to the swift; that there is more to life than increasing its speed. Let me look upward to the towering oak and know that it grew great and strong because it grew slowly and well. #Quote by Chip Ingram
Book Burnings quotes by John J. Ratey
#14. BORN TO RUN In his book Racing the Antelope: What Animals Can Teach Us about Running and Life, biologist Bernd Heinrich describes the human species as an endurance predator. The genes that govern our bodies today evolved hundreds of thousands of years ago, when we were in constant motion, either foraging for food or chasing antelope for hours and days across the plains. Heinrich describes how, even though antelope are among the fastest mammals, our ancestors were able to hunt them down by driving them to exhaustion - keeping on their tails until they had no energy left to escape. Antelope are sprinters, but their metabolism doesn't allow them to go and go and go. Ours does. And we have a fairly balanced distribution of fast-twitch and slow-twitch muscle fibers, so even after ranging miles over the landscape we retain the metabolic capacity to sprint in short bursts to make the kill. #Quote by John J. Ratey
Book Burnings quotes by Laura Lippman
#15. It's what's in the book that matters. Standing in her daughter's room which also had shelves and shelves filled with books, Tess remembered a character in a favorite story saying that to someone who objected to using the Bible as a fan on a hot summer day. But she could no longer remember which story it was.
Did that mean the book had ceased to live for her? The title she was trying to recall could be in this very room, along with all of Tess's childhood favorites, waiting for Carla Scout to discover them one day. But what if she rejected them all, insisting on her own myths and legends, as Octavia has prophesied? How many of these books would be out of print in five, ten years? What did it mean to be out of print in a world where books could live inside devices, glowing like captured genies, desperate to get back out in the world and grant people's wishes? #Quote by Laura Lippman
Book Burnings quotes by Elizabeth Gilbert
#16. The Augusteum warns me not to get attached to any obsolete ideas about who I am, what I represent, whom I belong to, or what function I may once have intended to serve. #Quote by Elizabeth Gilbert
Book Burnings quotes by John Corey Whaley
#17. I actually didn't mind too much that Gabriel had spent the past four nights in my room. He was relatively quiet, didn't go through my things, and liked to listen to my weird book ideas late at night. When I told him that I wanted to write a book about zombies taking over our town, he suggested that I make myself the hero and said nonchalantly, "You could even have to kill me after I get bitten. Wouldn't that be an awesome twist?" I didn't tell him then but I had no intention of ever letting him die in any book. #Quote by John Corey Whaley
Book Burnings quotes by Jocelyn Murray
#18. Books are like bound dreams waiting to be released #Quote by Jocelyn Murray
Book Burnings quotes by Karen Andreola
#19. The habit of grown-ups reading living books and retaining the power to digest them will be lost if we refuse to give a little time for Mother Culture. A wise mother, an admired mother and wife, when asked how, with her weak physical health and many demands on her time, she managed to read so much said, "Besides my Bible, I always keep three books going that are just for me - a stiff book, a moderately easy book, and a novel or one of poetry. I always take up the one I feel fit for. That is the secret: always have something 'going' to grow by. #Quote by Karen Andreola
Book Burnings quotes by Antonio Tabucchi
#20. This story, which takes place one a Sunday in July in a hot, deserted Lisbon, is the Requiem that the character I refer to as "I" was called on to perform in this book. Were someone to ask me why I wrote this story in Portuguese, I would answer simply that a story like this could only be written in Portuguese; it's as simple as that. But there is something else that needs explaining. Strictly speaking, a Requiem should be written in Latin, at least that's what tradition prescribes. Unfortunately, I don't think I'd be up to it in Latin. I realised though that I couldn't write a Requiem in my own language and I that I required a different language, one that was for me A PLACE OF AFFECTION AND REFLECTION. #Quote by Antonio Tabucchi
Book Burnings quotes by Quentin Crisp
#21. Nothing more rapidly inclines a person to go into a monastery than reading a book on etiquette. There are so many trivial ways in which it is possible to commit some social sin. #Quote by Quentin Crisp
Book Burnings quotes by Frank Delaney
#22. 'The Great Gatsby,' by F. Scott Fitzgerald, remains the most perfect novel that has ever come out of the United States. Everything in the book moves as it should, in the manner of a piece by Bach or Mozart. #Quote by Frank Delaney
Book Burnings quotes by Robert Pattinson
#23. I was really unfit last year, so I worked out for a long time, then spent time by myself in Oregon. For about two months the only person I saw was my trainer. Every day I did a lot of running and I just didn't want to talk to anyone for two months. So when I started talking again, it was like you would communicate wrongly, like you wouldn't really remember how to speak. That was one of the key things as well as just reading the book, reading the script a million times, just figuring things out. #Quote by Robert Pattinson
Book Burnings quotes by George W. Bush
#24. We're supposed to have guns. It says so in the Bible; and the second greatest book ever written, the Texas State Constitution. #Quote by George W. Bush
Book Burnings quotes by Haruki Murakami
#25. To be able to talk to your heart's content about a book you like with someone who feels the same way about it is one of the greatest joys that life can offer. #Quote by Haruki Murakami
Book Burnings quotes by Chad Harbach
#26. I sold a book six years after I left an MFA program. In between, there was a lot of endurance of poverty and a lot of fighting off doubt. It's all a part of the process of being or becoming a writer. #Quote by Chad Harbach
Book Burnings quotes by Robert Delgado
#27. Ah, the bliss of Mahotsava!
What joy it brings to every heart!
What a rare and precious chance
To share all knowledge with the wise,
And bless and love all peoples of the Earth!"
- Book of Secrets I, 1 #Quote by Robert Delgado
Book Burnings quotes by Rachael Bermingham
#28. Businesses, like babies and books, need nurturing, time, energy, love, planning and, yes, money to develop, grow and prosper. #Quote by Rachael Bermingham
Book Burnings quotes by Lauren Weisberger
#29. So much of my own life inspires what I write. Whether it's work, family, friends, motherhood, I am a writer who tends to write what she knows. In 'Revenge Wears Prada,' a great deal of my own life finds its way into the book. #Quote by Lauren Weisberger
Book Burnings quotes by Cormac McCarthy
#30. Usually, you don't know where a book comes from ... it's just there, some kind of an itch that you can't quite scratch. #Quote by Cormac McCarthy
Book Burnings quotes by Brian Koppelman
#31. All screenwriting books are bullshit, all. Watch movies, read screenplays. Let them be your guide. #Quote by Brian Koppelman
Book Burnings quotes by Charles L. Whitfield
#32. Through Heaven's Gate and Back speaks to all of us that have been abused as children. Lee Thornton's descriptions of the aftereffects of repeated trauma and a profound Near-Death Experience (NDE) are not only true but explained in a way that the reader can take in. It is rare to find a book so well written that it has both sexual abuse and an NDE under one cover. We definitely will be recommending this book to our patients. #Quote by Charles L. Whitfield
Book Burnings quotes by D.M. Murdock
#33. The commonalities include the following, in the order of the Moses myth as in the Bible. For the exact book or tablet in which these themes appear, please consult the epic itself. #Quote by D.M. Murdock
Book Burnings quotes by Chris Colfer
#34. Being a best-selling author just means the world for me. Some of my happiest memories, growing up, are being at book stores and reading books I couldn't afford, as a kid, and the midnight parties, waiting for the next Harry Potter book. The fact that I have that straw in my cap means more to me than anything I've ever accomplished before. #Quote by Chris Colfer
Book Burnings quotes by Helene Cixous
#35. It is because of this sea between us. The earth has never, up to now, separated us. But, ever since yesterday, there has been something in this nonetheless real, perfectly Atlantic, salty, slightly rough sea that has cast a spell on me. And every time I think about Promethea, I see her crossing this great expanse by boat and soon, alas, a storm comes up, my memory clouds over, in a flash there are shipwrecks, I cannot even cry out, my mouth is full of saltwater sobs. I am flooded with vague, deceptive recollections, I am drowning in my imagination in tears borrowed from the most familiar tragedies, I wish I had never read certain books whose poison is working in me. Has this Friday, perhaps, thrown a spell on me? But spells only work if you catch them. I have caught the Tragic illness. If only Promethea would make me some tea I know I would find some relief. But that is exactly what is impossible. And so, today, I am sinning.
I am sinking beneath reality. I am weighted down with literature. That is my fate. Yet I had the presence of mind to start this parenthesis, the only healthy moment in these damp, feverish hours.
All this to try to come back to the surface of our book...
Phone me quickly, Promethea, get me out of this parenthesis fast!) #Quote by Helene Cixous
Book Burnings quotes by Melissa Febos
#36. I saved letters from my boss. There are things in there that are directly transcribed. I was so glad I did that. Sometimes when I was writing the book I wondered if some little writer hobbit part of my brain was back there puppeteering that action. But it really never, on any conscious level, occurred to me that I would write about it. I will say, I thought probably some day there would be an ancillary character in some novel - not in the one I was currently writing - that would be a dominatrix or something. #Quote by Melissa Febos
Book Burnings quotes by Matt Ridley
#37. It's terrifying the way molecular biology has become more and more jargon ridden. But I strongly believe that my book can be read by the intelligent layman. I want everyone who bought a copy of 'A Brief History of Time' to buy a copy of 'Genome'. #Quote by Matt Ridley
