Book quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#1. The woodchopper reads the wisdom of the ages recorded on the paper that holds his dinner, then lights his pipe with it. When we ask for a scrap of paper for the most trivial use, it may have the confessions of Augustine or the sonnets of Shakespeare, and we not observe it. The student kindles his fire, the editor packs his trunk, the sportsman loads his gun, the traveler wraps his dinner, the Irishman papers his shanty, the schoolboy peppers the plastering, the belle pins up her hair, with the printed thoughts of men. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Book quotes by Michael Moss
#2. In the end, that is what this book is about. It will show how the makers of processed foods have chosen, time and again, to double down on their efforts to dominate the American diet, gambling that consumers won't figure them out. It will show how they push ahead, despite their own misgivings. And it will hold them accountable for the social costs that keep climbing even as some of their own say, "Enough already. #Quote by Michael Moss
Book quotes by Pauline Kael
#3. A book might be written on the injustice of the just. #Quote by Pauline Kael
Book quotes by Maggie Stiefvater
#4. After everything I'd lived through, I was not going to be reduced to a one-sentence definition. #Quote by Maggie Stiefvater
Book quotes by Saul Alinsky
#5. This book will not
contain any panacea or dogma; I detest and fear dogma." ...
"This is not an ideological book except insofar as argument for change,"...
"ideologies tend to be smelted into rigid dogmas claiming exclusive possession of the truth"...
" An organizer working in and for an open society is in an ideological dilemma. To begin with, he does not have a fixed truth. "...
" In the end he has one conviction - a belief that if people have the power to act, in the long run they will, most of the time, reach the right decisions.
I am not concerned if this faith in people is regarded as a prime truth and therefore a contradiction of what I have already written, for life is a story of contradictions. Believing in people, the radical has the job of organizing them so that they will have the power #Quote by Saul Alinsky
Book quotes by Janet Crain
#6. Each store will fulfil some of your needs, but no individual store can meet all of your needs. Learning how to set realistic expectations now and in future relationships requires you to examine each of the existing stores to see what they can offer. #Quote by Janet Crain
Book quotes by Deyth Banger
#7. People should be courage to read books, it should be made in such way how I changed my opinion how James Patterson did it. It should be done a way in which people should se the advantages of reading a book. #Quote by Deyth Banger
Book quotes by Jean M. Auel
#8. I have been a reader of Science Fiction and Fantasy for a long time, since I was 11 or 12 I think, so I understand it and I'm not at all surprised that readers of the genre might enjoy my books. #Quote by Jean M. Auel
Book quotes by Paul Kane
#9. For English assignments I was constantly coming up with these strange adventure stories ... But I actually wanted to be an artist, or maybe work in the comic book industry. #Quote by Paul Kane
Book quotes by H.G.Wells
#10. If you are in difficulties with a book, try the element of surprise: attack it at an hour when it isn't expecting it. #Quote by H.G.Wells
Book quotes by R.M. Engelhardt
#11. Once you read a book it becomes a part of you forever #Quote by R.M. Engelhardt
Book quotes by Wayne Grudem
#12. It is important to insist on the historical truthfulness of the narrative of the fall of Adam and Eve. Just as the account of the creation of Adam and Eve is tied in with the rest of the historical narrative in the book of Genesis, so also this account of the fall of man, which follows the history of man's creation, is presented by the author as straightforward, narrative history #Quote by Wayne Grudem
Book quotes by Carole Carlton
#13. Upon moving to Cornwall in 1991, I became bewitched by its enchanting timeless beauty, which captured my heart and holds me still. Brooding and mysterious, the south-eastern edge of Bodmin Moor provided the wild backdrop against which the introduction to my magical training and love of nature began. #Quote by Carole Carlton
Book quotes by Melina Marchetta
#14. Do you miss being friends with Santangelo?" I ask her after the lights are out and we're almost asleep.
"What makes you think were friends?"
"Everything."
I hear her yawn.
"Being enemies with him is better." she tells me. There's a long pause and I think she's going to say something more but she doesn't and it's just silence for a long while. #Quote by Melina Marchetta
Book quotes by Christopher Morley
#15. Lord! when you sell a man a book you don't sell just twelve ounces of paper and ink and glue - you sell him a whole new life. Love and friendship and humour and ships at sea by night - there's all heaven and earth in a book, a real book. #Quote by Christopher Morley
Book quotes by Tom Perrotta
#16. He made me think of all the books I hadn't read, and all the ones I'd read but hadn't fully understood. #Quote by Tom Perrotta
Book quotes by John Maynard Keynes
#17. [T]he theory of output as a whole, which is what the following book purports to provide, is much more easily adapted to the conditions of a totalitarian state, than is the theory of production and distribution of a given output produced under the conditions of free competition and a large measure of laissez-faire. #Quote by John Maynard Keynes
Book quotes by Robin Wasserman
#18. I try not to think too much about an audience when I'm writing the first draft of a book - at that stage, the prospect of anyone reading what I've written would be enough to scare me into setting my laptop on fire. #Quote by Robin Wasserman
Book quotes by Chris Hedges
#19. The poison that is war does not free us from the ethics of responsibility. There are times when we must take this poison - just as a person with cancer accepts chemotherapy to live. We can not succumb to despair. Force is and I suspect always will be part of the human condition. There are times when the force wielded by one immoral faction must be countered by a faction that, while never moral, is perhaps less immoral.
We in the industrialized world bear responsibility for the world's genocides because we had the power to intervene and did not. We stood by and watched the slaughter in Chechnya, Sri Lanka, Sierra Leone, Liberia, and Rwanda where a million people died. The blood for the victims of Srebrenica- a designated UN safe area in Bosnia- is on our hands. The generation before mine watched, with much the same passivity, the genocides of Germany, Poland, Hungary, Greece, and the Ukraine. These slaughters were, as in, Gabriel Garcia Marquez's book Chronical of a Death Foretold, often announced in advance #Quote by Chris Hedges
Book quotes by Matthew Henry
#20. If you take a book into your hands, be it 'God's book, or any other useful good book,' rely on God to make it profitable to you. Do not waste time reading unprofitable books. When you read, do so not out of vain curiosity but with love for God's kingdom, compassion for human beings, and the intent to turn what you learn into prayers and praises. #Quote by Matthew Henry
Book quotes by Bridget Hall
#21. I don't remember ever having finished a book. #Quote by Bridget Hall
Book quotes by Keri Hulme
#22. You want to know about anybody? See what books they read, and how they've been read ... #Quote by Keri Hulme
Book quotes by Tony Reinke
#23. The question of this book is simple: What is the best use of my smartphone in the flourishing of my life? To that end, my aim is to avoid both extremes: the utopian optimism of the technophiliac and the dystopian pessimistic of the technophobe. #Quote by Tony Reinke
Book quotes by Eugene Field
#24. Let my temptation be a book. #Quote by Eugene Field
Book quotes by Ang Lee
#25. I think the book struck me in a few ways that I thought very interesting to pick it as my first martial arts film. It has a very strong female character and it was very abundant in classic Chinese textures. #Quote by Ang Lee
Book quotes by Willa Holland
#26. Adapting a Judy Blume book is something I really wanted to do, and you couldn't grow up in the '90s without knowing about 'Tiger Eyes' and reading it. It should've been assigned to all teenage girls. #Quote by Willa Holland
Book quotes by Virginia Woolf
#27. Beneath my eyes opens
a book; I see to the bottom; the heart
I see to the depths. I know what loves are trembling into fire; how jealousy shoots its green flashes hither and thither; how intricately love crosses love; love makes knots; love brutally tears them apart. I have been knotted; I have been torn apart. #Quote by Virginia Woolf
Book quotes by Margot Robbie
#28. It seems to be the way I get jobs - I book a holiday, I get to the other side of the world, then I'll get the job. #Quote by Margot Robbie
Book quotes by Bob Mayer
#29. One thing I often talk about in my business is that an eBook is not like a print book: it's very, very different. It's organic. It's changing. #Quote by Bob Mayer
Book quotes by Rajani LaRocca
#30. Lemon and... blueberries, right? No, hold on- blackberries, I think. And... lavender? Lavender, for... excitement? I think there's an old saying that lavender is good for something like that."
That sounded familiar. "Just a second." I took the book out of my backpack and flipped through the beginning again. "This isn't in alphabetical order, or any kind of order at all. Oh, here it is. Lavender brings luck and adventure for those who choose to embrace it," I said. "You were right."
"What book is that?" asked Vik. "It looks ancient."
"I just found it. It's got all these drawings and descriptions of herbs and spices."
"Cool! Can I take a look?"
I handed him the book, and he spent the next few minutes leafing through it, but then returned to eating the cupcake.
"I love this. It's so different from the usual boring things people make. Although..." He took another bite. "I have a suggestion." He studied the cupcake. "The cake is light, fluffy, and complex, and the creamy, tangy frosting complements it so well. It might be even better with an edible garnish. Like a sugared mint leaf." He took another bite. "Or a sugared violet," he said with his mouth half full. "That would be lovely."
I gaped in surprise. He was right. It would be lovely. I'd thought about topping them with fresh, mouth-puckering blackberries, but these suggestions were so much more elegant. #Quote by Rajani LaRocca
Book quotes by L.R.W. Lee
#31. I've supported the punishment. Your brother needed to pay for what he did. I don't disagree. He was a jealous, scheming fifteen-year-old. But the people did nothing wrong. All these years you have used them to punish him. It is enough. It's time to move on." Imogenia stood up, holding her book. "I'm sorry, Father, but I do not agree. Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to read in my room." At that, she disappeared through the wall. #Quote by L.R.W. Lee
Book quotes by William Least Heat-Moon
#32. It's difficult to write a book where a character is on virtually every page of the book but you cannot refer to his or her gender. It gets rid of every his, her, she and he. #Quote by William Least Heat-Moon
Book quotes by Kim Stanley Robinson
#33. Why read on? Why pick up their book from the far wall where it has been thrown away in disgust and pain, and read on? Why submit to such cruelty, such bad karma, such bad plotting? The reason is simple: these things happened. #Quote by Kim Stanley Robinson
Book quotes by Jessica Brody
#34. When my phone chimes with a text message on Monday morning, I'm still in that dreamy state between sleep and awake where you can pretty much convince yourself of anything. Like that a teen Mick Jagger is waiting in your driveway to take you to school. Or that your favorite book series ended with an actual satisfying conclusion, instead of what the author tried to pass off as a satisfying conclusion. #Quote by Jessica Brody
Book quotes by Edward Sklepowich
#35. Urbino laughed. The Contessa, as usual when it came to things Venetian, was probably right. #Quote by Edward Sklepowich
Book quotes by Anais Nin
#36. I am sure you would not understand if I told you my father is delightfully clear and selfish, tender and lying, formal and incurable. He exhausts all the loves given to him. If I did not leave his house at night to warm myself in Rango's burning hands I would die at my task, arid and barren, sapless, while my father monologues about his past, and I yawn yawn yawn... #Quote by Anais Nin
Book quotes by Barbara Kingsolver
#37. I struggle with confidence, every time. I'm never completely sure I can write another book. Maybe my scope is too grand, my questions too hard, surely readers won't want to follow me here. A novel is like a cathedral, it knocks you down to size when you enter into it. #Quote by Barbara Kingsolver
Book quotes by Kiera Cass
#38. Umm, why is it that we don't have any of this in a book? So we could study?" There was a hint of irritation in her voice. Silvia shook her head. "Dear girls, history isn't something you study. It's something you should just know." Marlee turned to me and whispered, "But clearly we don't." She smiled at her own joke, and then focused again on Silvia. I thought about that, how we all knew different things or had to guess at the truth. Why weren't we given history books? I remembered a few years ago when I went into Mom and Dad's room, since Mom said I could choose what I wanted to read for English. As I went through my options, I spotted a thick, ratty book in the back corner and pulled it out. It was a U.S. history book. Dad came in a few minutes later, saw what I was reading, and said it was okay, so long as I never told anyone about it. When #Quote by Kiera Cass
Book quotes by Ken Dryden
#39. Ya writin' a book? Hey great. Need some help? Want some of my quips? Hey, we could do it together. We'd quip 'em to death. Give 'em quiplash hee hee hee. #Quote by Ken Dryden
Book quotes by Pat McBride
#40. When we are angry, we will use a lie as fast as a truth if we can hurt with it. Anger feels strong but it is actually a disguised weakness. To someone with their eyes closed, all the pictures that you show them will seem the same. It is better to whisper words of love instead of trying to find a better picture. The end of a relationship is not a failure any more than the end of a book is a failure. #Quote by Pat McBride
Book quotes by Sady Doyle
#41. Consider this book, then, a feminist anatomy of the trainwreck. It's an effort to figure out who she is: why she's making us so angry; what, in general, she hath done to offend us. These are questions of more immediate and personal relevance than you may think: When women look hard enough at the trainwreck, we almost invariably end up looking at ourselves. #Quote by Sady Doyle
Book quotes by Sue Grafton
#42. I caution writers all the time to slow down and pay more attention to the work in front of them than to the end result. I don't think you write one book and get anywhere. I think you write five books and then maybe you are finally on the right path. #Quote by Sue Grafton
Book quotes by Harper Lee
#43. I didn't expect the book to sell in the first place. I was hoping for a quick and merciful death at the hands of reviewers but at the same time I sort of hoped that maybe someone would like it enough to give me encouragement. Public encouragement. I hoped for a little, as I said, but I got rather a whole lot, and in some ways this was just about as frightening as the quick, merciful death I'd expected. #Quote by Harper Lee
Book quotes by Carew Papritz
#44. Sometimes I travel just to be overwhelmed – for it's good every now and then to be overwhelmed. #Quote by Carew Papritz
Book quotes by Dragos Bratasanu
#45. We cannot find peace when the mind rages war against the heart, when we fight with our thoughts the pull of our love. #Quote by Dragos Bratasanu
Book quotes by Jarod Kintz
#46. Bestseller doesn't necessarily mean good writer. I think it takes 10,000 book sales to make the bestseller's list, and at about 9 dollars a pop for my book, if I had an extra $90,000 dollars of disposable income, I'd be a bestseller tomorrow. But would I be a better writer? No, I'd be a poorer writer - about $75,000 dollars poorer. #Quote by Jarod Kintz
Book quotes by Galileo Galilei
#47. After an injunction had been judicially intimated to me by this Holy Office, to the effect that I must altogether abandon the false opinion that the sun is the center of the world and immovable, and that the earth is not the center of the world, and moves, and that I must not hold, defend, or teach in any way whatsoever, verbally or in writing, the said false doctrine, and after it had been notified to me that the said doctrine was contrary to Holy Scripture - I wrote and printed a book in which I discuss this new doctrine already condemned, and adduce arguments of great cogency in its favor, without presenting any solution of these, and for this reason I have been pronounced by the Holy Office to be vehemently suspected of heresy, that is to say, of having held and believed that the Sun is the center of the world and immovable, and that the earth is not the center and moves:

Therefore, desiring to remove from the minds of your Eminences, and of all faithful Christians, this vehement suspicion, justly conceived against me, with sincere heart and unfeigned faith I abjure, curse, and detest the aforesaid errors and heresies, and generally every other error, heresy, and sect whatsoever contrary to the said Holy Church, and I swear that in the future I will never again say or assert, verbally or in writing, anything that might furnish occasion for a similar suspicion regarding me; but that should I know any heretic, or person suspected of heresy, I will denounce him #Quote by Galileo Galilei
Book quotes by Scott Westerfeld
#48. The very idea of making shoes by hand boggled her mind. #Quote by Scott Westerfeld
Book quotes by Virginia Woolf
#49. He would give every penny he has (such is the malignity of the germ) to write one little book and become famous; yet all the gold in Peru will not buy him the treasure of a well-turned line. #Quote by Virginia Woolf
Book quotes by Ruth Ozeki
#50. This diary will tell the real life story of my great-grandmother Yasutani Jiko. She was a nun and a novelist and New Woman7 of the Taisho era.8 She was also an anarchist and a feminist who had plenty of lovers, both males and females, but she was never kinky or nasty. And even though I may end up mentioning some of her love affairs, everything I write will be historically true and empowering to women, and not a lot of foolish geisha crap. So if kinky nasty things are your pleasure, please close this book and give it to your wife or co-worker and save yourself a lot of time and trouble. 4. #Quote by Ruth Ozeki
Book quotes by Sarah Dessen
#51. Some things don't last forever, but some things do. Like a good song, or a good book, or a good memory you can take out and unfold in your darkest times, pressing down on the corners and peering in close, hoping you still recognize the person you see there. #Quote by Sarah Dessen
Book quotes by Jerome K. Jerome
#52. I did not intend to write a funny book, at first. I did not know I was a humorist. I have never been sure about it. In the middle ages, I should probably have gone about preaching and got myself burnt or hanged. #Quote by Jerome K. Jerome
Book quotes by John Green
#53. Reading a good book helps us to feel un-alone. #Quote by John Green
Book quotes by Ann Coulter
#54. So for those of you who haven't read any of my five best-selling books: Liberals are driven by Satan and lie constantly. #Quote by Ann Coulter
Book quotes by Adrian Hodges
#55. In the book, D'Artagnan doesn't actually become an official Musketeer until quite near the end, and we make quite a big thing about that. I won't give too much away, but when he finally does make it, they're not going to make it easy for him. That never changes. #Quote by Adrian Hodges
Book quotes by Thomas Wharton
#56. Sometimes you wish to escape to another part of the book.
You stop reading and riffle the pages, catching sight of the story as it races ahead, not above the world but through it, through forests and complications, the chaos of intentions and cities.
As you near the last few pages you are hurtling through the book at increasing speed, until all is a blur of restlessness, and then suddenly your thumb loses its grip and you sail out of the story and back into yourself. The book is once again a fragile vessel of cloth and paper. You have gone everywhere and nowhere. #Quote by Thomas Wharton
Book quotes by Frank Herbert
#57. When I was writing Dune there was no room in my mind for concerns about the book's success or failure. I was concerned only with the writing. Six years of research had preceded the day I sat down to put the story together, and the interweaving of the many plot layers I had planned required a degree of concentration I had never before experienced. #Quote by Frank Herbert
Book quotes by Matt De La Pena
#58. I feel like I have a lot of novel ideas, but they often come up while I'm already in the process of working on a book. You have to watch out with the slutty new idea. #Quote by Matt De La Pena
Book quotes by Chloe Thurlow
#59. I was just getting to the good bit when I heard the sound of his footsteps approaching and wasn't sure whether I would rather be alone with him or alone to finish my book. Men come and go. A good book lasts forever. #Quote by Chloe Thurlow
Book quotes by Philip Pullman
#60. I got a book token for Christmas and exchanged it for a book called A History of Art, and that book (which I still have-battered and falling to pieces) became more precious to me than any Bible. #Quote by Philip Pullman
Book quotes by P.G. Wodehouse
#61. Ah, well,' I said resignedly, 'if that's that, that's that, what?' 'So it would appear, sir.' 'Nothing to do but keep the chin up and the upper lip as stiff as can be managed. I think I'll go to bed with an improving book. Have you read The Mystery of the Pink Crayfish by Rex West? #Quote by P.G. Wodehouse
Book quotes by Kevin Sampsell
#62. I think a lot of awesome stuff is coming out with smaller presses. Small presses don't have to have huge board meetings to talk about how to market their books or what to publish - they can take more chances. They can help new authors grow in a healthier, often more artistic way. #Quote by Kevin Sampsell
Book quotes by Seanan McGuire
#63. She discovered the pure joy of reading for pleasure, and was rarely - if ever - seen without a book in her hand. Even in slumber, she was often to be found clutching a volume with one slender hand, her fingers wrapped right around its spine, as if she feared to wake into a world where all books had been forgotten and removed, and this book might become the last she had to linger over. #Quote by Seanan McGuire
Book quotes by Ethan Canin
#64. If you write a page a day in couple months you have a good chunk of the book and then after a year you have almost a book. It's not that ... hard. #Quote by Ethan Canin
Book quotes by Seth Godin
#65. It's not an accident that successful people read more books. #Quote by Seth Godin
Book quotes by Zig Ziglar
#66. A poet stated it more succinctly when he wrote, "I hear and forget. I see and hear and I remember. However, when I see, hear and do, I understand and succeed." Interestingly enough, you will discover that when you read this book a second time, you will get more thoughts and more ideas than you did the first time. This is especially true if you read a few minutes every day before you start your day's activities and just before you go to sleep. #Quote by Zig Ziglar
Book quotes by Daniel Goleman
#67. The book is a dialogue between The Dalai Lama and a group of scientists about how we can better handle our destructive emotions and how to overcome them. #Quote by Daniel Goleman
Book quotes by Anita R. Sneed-Carter
#68. ATTENTION ALL AUTHORS: Be very careful who you give acknowledgement to in your books. Reason: That acknowledgement is in permanent, ink and they are forever associated with you, that book and your name. -Word to the Wi #Quote by Anita R. Sneed-Carter
Book quotes by Theophile Gautier
#69. It sometimes happens that a man who, up until now has believed himself to be gifted with perfect health, opens a medical book, either by chance or to pass the time, and on reading the pathological description of an illness, recognises that he is afflicted by it; enlightened by a fateful flash of insight, he feels at every symptom mentioned some obscure organ shuddering within him, or some hidden fibre of whose role in the body he had been unaware, and he pales as he realises that a death he thought was still a long way off is so imminent. #Quote by Theophile Gautier
Book quotes by Leni Zumas
#70. I cut hundreds of pages from my book because I felt myself being reiterative or redundant. Sometimes I wanted to leave just hints of things. #Quote by Leni Zumas
Book quotes by Samuel Johnson
#71. The greatest part of a writer's time is spent in reading, in order to write: a man will turn over half a library to make one book. #Quote by Samuel Johnson
Book quotes by Billy Collins
#72. Vade Mecum
I want the scissors to be sharp
and the table perfectly level
when you cut me out of my life
and paste me in that book you always carry. #Quote by Billy Collins
Book quotes by Bob Hartley
#73. I had a dream where I was taken to Heaven and brought into a beautiful library. There I was given two golden books that were covered with dust. The Lord told me they were golden treasure that was needed for the Body of Christ to have the knowledge to proceed and succeed in this hour. #Quote by Bob Hartley
Book quotes by Jose Raul Capablanca
#74. Ninety percent of the book variations have no great value, because either they contain mistakes or they are based on fallacious assumptions; just forget about the openings and spend all that time on the endings. #Quote by Jose Raul Capablanca
Book quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#75. Life is a great Book. We are writing the history of our time. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
Book quotes by Criswell Freeman
#76. The things that we mortals see as setbacks are, in truth,
simply God's way of redirecting our paths toward Him.
And what sometimes seems to be a terrible setback (to us)
can always be transformed into a great victory (for Him).
After all, no problem is too big for God.
Criswell Freeman (the man who helped me write this book) #Quote by Criswell Freeman
Book quotes by Nicky Wire
#77. I think solitude is a really positive thing. I cherish solitude immensely. In today's society, there's so much pressure to communicate, eat out, be friends with people. Why can't you read a book on your own? Why have you got to have a book club? #Quote by Nicky Wire
Book quotes by Kelli O'Hara
#78. It is such a luxury to open a new book that's highly recommended by friends - either an inspirational yet humorously self-deprecating memoir, or a page-turning piece of fiction. #Quote by Kelli O'Hara
Book quotes by Steven Pressfield
#79. I was thirty years old before I had an actual thought. Everything up till then was either what Buddhists call "monkey-mind" chatter or the reflexive regurgitation of whatever my parents or teachers said, or whatever I saw on the news or read in a book, or heard somebody rap about, hanging around the street corner. #Quote by Steven Pressfield
Book quotes by Edward Grey, 1st Viscount Grey Of Fallodon
#80. Two temptations that impair the value of their work inevitably beset public men who write memoirs. One is a tendency to reconstruct the past to suit the present views and feelings of the writer; the other is a natual desire to set his own part in affairs in a pleasing light. #Quote by Edward Grey, 1st Viscount Grey Of Fallodon
Book quotes by Georg C. Lichtenberg
#81. It is a sure evidence of a good book if it pleases us more and more as we grow older. #Quote by Georg C. Lichtenberg
Book quotes by Jim George
#82. God always keeps His promises. #Quote by Jim George

Book quotes by Anonymous
#84. I thought about what I'd just reread in my father's book. About going out and just driving, and how you can only do it when you're young. #Quote by Anonymous
Book quotes by Jezebel Greer
#85. down. "I always think about that night. I wonder if you remember. A few years ago, when we were all laughing about that awful book everyone was reading? But you said you enjoyed it, because you liked bondage. You liked being submissive. Hold out your hands. #Quote by Jezebel Greer
Book quotes by Whitley Strieber
#86. The upheavals of adolescence silenced 'A Christmas Carol' for a few years. I became a firebrand atheist. Christmas - humbug! Too commercial! Then I became an agnostic. Christmas was a pro-forma affair, basically a chore. Buy mother a book, dad a new tie, my brother and sister small gifts. Pretend thanks for the fountain pens and shirts I received. #Quote by Whitley Strieber
Book quotes by Samuel Johnson
#87. When a language begins to teem with books, it is tending to refinement; as those who undertake to teach others must have undergone some labour in improving themselves, they set a proportionate value on their own thoughts, and wish to enforce them by efficacious expressions; speech becomes embodied and permanent; different modes and phrases are compared, and the best obtains an establishment. By degrees one age improves upon another. #Quote by Samuel Johnson
Book quotes by Caroline Kepnes
#88. A book lets you choose how much of the blood you want to see. A book gives you the permission to see the story as you want, as your mind directs. #Quote by Caroline Kepnes
Book quotes by Henry Rollins
#89. Not that the writers weren't good. I believe in those books and those writers very much. It's just that in the climate it's really hard to keep the lights on and the doors open when you're selling poetry and literature that appeals to a fringe audience. #Quote by Henry Rollins
Book quotes by Garth Nix
#90. The Dog was a different matter. She was new, or so old that any book that told of her was long since dust. The creature in the fog thought the latter. #Quote by Garth Nix
Book quotes by Julian Barnes
#91. But life never lets you go, does it? You can't put down life the way you put down a book. #Quote by Julian Barnes
Book quotes by Cassandra Clare
#92. A book that one has not read yet is always more exciting than a book one has memorized. #Quote by Cassandra Clare
Book quotes by Brian Clevinger
#93. I'm STREET. ... I've been ON a street, anyway... #Quote by Brian Clevinger
Book quotes by Jim Bishop
#94. I can look at my books with pleasure from a distance. Four feet is close enough. #Quote by Jim Bishop
Book quotes by Shandy L. Kurth
#95. You are never the same person stepping out of a book, that you were when you first stepped in. #Quote by Shandy L. Kurth
Book quotes by A.M. Homes
#96. Books tell you more about their owners than the owners do. #Quote by A.M. Homes
Book quotes by Edgar Allan Poe
#97. It was well said of a certain German book that 'er lasst sich nicht lesen" - it does not permit itself to be read. #Quote by Edgar Allan Poe
Book quotes by Mehmet Murat Ildan
#98. A good book is a lighthouse; a wise man is a lighthouse; conscience is a lighthouse; compassion is a lighthouse; science is a lighthouse! They all show us the true path! Keep them in your life to remain safe in the rocky and dark waters of life! #Quote by Mehmet Murat Ildan
Book quotes by Earl Nightingale
#99. How are you coming with your home library? Do you need some good ammunition on why it's so important to read? The last time I checked the statistics...I think they indicated that only four percent of the adults in this country have bought a book within the past year. That's dangerous. It's extremely important that we keep ourselves in the top five or six percent.
In one of the Monthly Letters from the Royal Bank of Canada it was pointed out that reading good books is not something to be indulged in as a luxury. It is a necessity for anyone who intends to give his life and work a touch of quality. The most real wealth is not what we put into our piggy banks but what we develop in our heads. Books instruct us without anger, threats and harsh discipline. They do not sneer at our ignorance or grumble at our mistakes. They ask only that we spend some time in the company of greatness so that we may absorb some of its attributes.

You do not read a book for the book's sake, but for your own.

You may read because in your high-pressure life, studded with problems and emergencies, you need periods of relief and yet recognize that peace of mind does not mean numbness of mind.

You may read because you never had an opportunity to go to college, and books give you a chance to get something you missed. You may read because your job is routine, and books give you a feeling of depth in life.

You may read because you did go to college.

Book quotes by Kira Hawke
#100. Just remember: it's worth all the negative reviews to get your book in the hands of those who'll love it. #Quote by Kira Hawke
Book quotes by Sherman Alexie
#101. Every book is a mystery. And if you read all the books ever written, it's like you've read one giant mystery. And no matter how much you learn, you just keep on learning there is so much more you need to learn. #Quote by Sherman Alexie
Book quotes by Liz Kessler
#102. If you looked round the rooms, you wouldn't think there was anything missing. But it's like one of those Spot the difference cartoons in a puzzle book. The changes are so subtle, yet glaringly obvious once you've seen them. A photo missing here, a cup there. A heart a bit more broken than it was before. #Quote by Liz Kessler
Book quotes by Thighpaulsandra
#103. I write all the time, I've got a big, thick, old ledger book that I write stuff down in. I used to watch TV and write things that people would say and now I tend to get it more out of books and from conversations with people I meet. #Quote by Thighpaulsandra
Book quotes by Deborah Johnson
#104. Regina read all this, thinking with each sentence she'd put the book down. But a sentence became a paragraph, which flowed on into a page, two pages, a chapter, more. #Quote by Deborah Johnson

#105. Vision involves more than just seeing or being shown. #Quote by Donis A. Dondis
Book quotes by Alida Nugent
#106. Really, I want you to finish this book feeling like we could become friends, if the timing was right. That's it. Oh, and by the way, you should drink while you're reading this book. If you want to play a drinking game, I suggest you take a shot when you feel like I am abusing commas. #Quote by Alida Nugent
Book quotes by Alexander Chee
#107. Sometimes the writer writes one novel, then another, then another, and the first one he sells is the first one the public sees - but mostly, the debut novel is almost never the first novel the writer wrote. There's a private idea of the writer, known to the writer and whoever rejected him previously, and a public one, visibly only in publication. Each book is something of a mask of the troubles that went into it and so is the writer's visible career. #Quote by Alexander Chee
Book quotes by Meg Cabot
#108. Book light," Grandma grumbles as I hurry her away from Dad's boss and his wife. "Who the hell wants
a book light?"
"Lots of people," I say. "They are very handy things to have. #Quote by Meg Cabot
Book quotes by Michael Chabon
#109. Nothing ever comes out the way I hope it will. That first vision, that initial vision you have of a book, what it's going to be like when it's done, it begins to go wrong the second you start to write. #Quote by Michael Chabon
Book quotes by Michael Korda
#110. Ask a book publisher how many copies a book has sold, and he or she, presuming you're not the author, will probably try to remember the size of the first printing, then double it. If you're the author, the publisher will try to remember the number of copies that were shipped and cut that in half in order to avoid encouraging you to expect a big royalty check. #Quote by Michael Korda
Book quotes by Iain Pears
#111. It is easy to imagine a world where not only can few people read, few need to or want to. Serious reading can become the preserve of a s mall group of specialists, just as shoe-making or farming is for us. Think how much time would be saved. We send children to school and they spend most of their time learning to read and then, when they leave, they never pick up another book for the rest of their lives. Reading is only important if there is something worthwhile to read. Most of it is ephemeral. That means an oral culture of tales told and remembered. People can be immensely sophisticated in thought and understanding without much writing. #Quote by Iain Pears
Book quotes by Eddie Griffin
#112. I believe God wrote the Word in your essence. That's the genius of my Father. You are born knowing right from wrong. You don't need a book to tell you that! #Quote by Eddie Griffin
Book quotes by Sherman Alexie
#113. As a child, I read because books–violent and not, blasphemous and not, terrifying and not–were the most loving and trustworthy things in my life. I read widely, and loved plenty of the classics so, yes, I recognized the domestic terrors faced by Louisa May Alcott's March sisters. But I became the kid chased by werewolves, vampires, and evil clowns in Stephen King's books. I read books about monsters and monstrous things, often written with monstrous language, because they taught me how to battle the real monsters in my life.

And now I write books for teenagers because I vividly remember what it felt like to be a teen facing everyday and epic dangers. I don't write to protect them. It's far too late for that. I write to give them weapons–in the form of words and ideas-that will help them fight their monsters. I write in blood because I remember what it felt like to bleed. #Quote by Sherman Alexie

Book quotes by Anagarika Govinda
#115. Sometimes a glance, a few casual words, fragments of a melody floating through the quiet air of a summer evening, a book that accidentally comes into hands, a poem or memory-laden fragrance may bring about the impulse which changes and determines our whole life. #Quote by Anagarika Govinda
Book quotes by Stephen King
#116. From the Book of Republicans: "Lo, we have many assholes running for President. Let us consider, and pick the biggest. And so it was done. #Quote by Stephen King
Book quotes by Douglas Coupland
#117. Never loan a book to someone if you expect to get it back. Loaning books is the same as giving them away. #Quote by Douglas Coupland
Book quotes by Pliny The Elder
#118. Wonderful is the wit and subtiltie that dumb creatures have & how they shift for themselves and annoy their enemies: which is the only difficultie that they have to arise and grow to so great an height and excessive bignesse. The dragon therefore espying the Elephant when he goeth to releese, assaileth him from an high tree and launceth himselfe upon him; but the Elephant knowing well enough well enough he is not able to withstand his windings and knittings about him, seeketh to come close to some trees or hard rockes, and so forth to crush and squise the dragon between him and them: the dragons ware hereof, entangle and snarle his feet and legges first with their taile: the Elephants on the other side, undoe those knots with their trunke as with a hand: but to prevent that againe, the dragons put in their heads into their snout, and so stop their breath, and withall, fret and gnaw the tenderest parts that they find there.

Book quotes by Jack Gantos
#119. It's like when you read a book and you know that the words are important, but the images blossoming in your imagination are even more important because it's your mind that allows the words to come to life. #Quote by Jack Gantos
Book quotes by Glen Morgan

Book quotes by James Purdy
#121. None of my books are best-sellers. In fact, the only thing that's kept me alive is the books that are in paperback. People find them, they like them, and they pass them on. #Quote by James Purdy
Book quotes by Laurie Halse Anderson
#122. You can tell a book is real when your heart beats faster. Real books make you sweat. Cry, if no one is looking. Real books help you make sense of your crazy life. Real books tell it true, don't hold back and make you stronger. But most of all, real books give you hope. Because it's not always going to be like this and books-the good ones, the ones-show you how to make it better. Now. #Quote by Laurie Halse Anderson
Book quotes by Gustave Flaubert
#123. And indeed, what is better than to sit by one's fireside in the evening with a book, while the wind beats against the window and the lamp is burning? #Quote by Gustave Flaubert
Book quotes by Richard Bach
#124. Kindle Singles is publishing on skates. It prints like lightning; our book meets readers in hours. I've spent so many years waiting for publishers to consider whether they wanted to print a book of mine, making contracts, taking months to fit it into the Fall list or the Spring list, fitting it into an advertising plan. #Quote by Richard Bach
Book quotes by Alberto Manguel
#125. The various qualities of my readings seem to permeate my every muscle, so that, when I finally decide
to turn off the library light, I carry into my sleep the voices and the movements of the book I've just closed. #Quote by Alberto Manguel
Book quotes by Cyc Jouzy
#126. Do You Know That By Just Saying "I WANNA DIE" Or "I WISH I COULD DIE" ... God Can Answer That Prayer???
You Will Be Cancelled In The Book Of Life And At Heaven You Will Be Dead, But You Will Just Be Walking On Earth Waiting To Go To Hell. Thats What Most People Call HELL OF A LIFE ... A Life Of Someone Who Is Not Written In The Book Of Life.
So People Stop Playing With Those Words.
And If You Once Said That, PRAY TONIGHT SO THAT GOD RE-WRITES YOU IN THE BOOK OF LIFE. #Quote by Cyc Jouzy
Book quotes by Roy Blount, Jr.
#127. An author is a person who can never take innocent pleasure in visiting a bookstore again. Say you go in and discover that there are no copies of your book on the shelves. You resent all the other books - I don't care if they are Great Expectations, Life on the Mississippi and the King James Bible that are on the shelves. #Quote by Roy Blount, Jr.

Book quotes by Karen Abbott
#129. I thought both she [Gypsy Rose Lee] and her story would be ill-served by a conventional, birth-to-death narrative, and so I structured the book like one of her stripteases: revealing a peek of shoulder, then a glimpse of knee, pulling back a bit before you go a bit further, until all is revealed at the end. #Quote by Karen Abbott

#134. Put down the book." She wanted to look away, as he seemed distracted from holding the trousers in place, but she couldn't take her eyes off the book. What if he hurt it? What if he followed through with his threat?

"My lord, I apologize for the horse joke. If you put down the book - unharmed! - I will give you a carrot. #Quote by Cynthia Hand
Book quotes by Martin Amis
#135. I think one shouldn't pussyfoot, and just say that you write the stuff that you would like to read. So you write for yourself, no doubt about that. But I do have a sort of romantic idea of someone in their twenties, of a certain bent, and when they pick up a book by me, they think
as I have done on several occasions
'Ah, here is one for me. Here is a writer who I'll have to read all of, because they're speaking directly to me, and they're writing what I want to read.' And sometimes you're doing the signing queue and a reader comes past and you sign the book, and there's a little exchange of the eyes, where you think, 'Ah, that's one of them.' So there is that ideal reader. And it's someone who's discovering literature and homes in on you. I'm aware of such readers. #Quote by Martin Amis
Book quotes by Lemony Snicket
#136. But one type of book that practically no one likes to read is a book about the law. Books about the law are notorious for being very long, very dull, and very difficult to read. This is one reason many lawyers make heaps of money. The money is an incentive - the word "incentive" here means "an offered reward to persuade you to do something you don't want to do - to read long, dull, and difficult books. #Quote by Lemony Snicket
Book quotes by Anna Quindlen
#137. I can't begin to predict how news will be delivered to readers in, say, 100 years. But I do know one thing that hasn't changed: Whatever the delivery system, whether it's a magazine, book or blog, people like vivid writing, strong stories and credible people. So while the venue is changing rapidly, human nature isn't, which I find soothing. #Quote by Anna Quindlen

Book quotes by Richard House
#140. When I started writing the third book, 'The Kill,' the intention was just to write a thriller, a crime novel for myself, really, in which there would be no body, no solution - where you would look at an event from different people's perspectives. #Quote by Richard House

"Oh, and we ran into your captain of the guard in the hallway, and a few other guards, and I may have scared him and he's, um, unconscious. Also. But, really, they'll all be fine. I swear." Her lips twitched into a brief, nervous smile. "Um ... hello, again. By the way. #Quote by Marissa Meyer

Book quotes by Noam Chomsky
#144. It's intellectual freedom when a journalist can understand that 2 + 2 = 4; that's what Orwell was writing about in 1984. Everybody here applauds that book, but nobody is willing to think about what it means. What Winston Smith [the main character] was saying is, if we can still understand that 2 + 2 = 4, they haven't taken everything away. Okay? Well, in the United States, people can't even understand that 2 + 2 = 4. #Quote by Noam Chomsky

Book quotes by Norman Vincent Peale
#147. Sudden I stopped. I was out of breath. I asked myself, "What is this all about? What is the meaning of this ceaseless rush? This is ridiculous!" Then I declared independence, and said, "I do not care if I go to dinner. I do not care whether I make a talk. I do not have to go to this dinner and I do not have to make a speech." So deliberately and slowly I walked back to my room and took my time about unlocking the door. I telephoned the man downstairs and said, "If you want to eat, go ahead. If you want to save a place for me, I will be down after a while, but I am not going to rush any more." So I removed my coat, sat down, took off my shoes, put my feet up on the table, and just sat. Then I opened the Bible and very slowly read aloud the 121st Psalm, "I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills from whence cometh my help." I closed the book and had a little talk with myself, saying, "Come on now, start living a slower and more relaxed life," and then I affirmed, "God is here and His #Quote by Norman Vincent Peale

Book quotes by Lynne Sharon Schwartz
#149. Reading was the stable backdrop against which my life was played. It was what I used to do through long evenings. Never mornings even to one so self-indulgent, it seems slightly sinful to wake up and immediately sit down with a book and afternoons only now and then. In daylight I would pay what I owed the world. Reading was the reward, a solitary, obscure, nocturnal reward. It was what I got everything else (living) out of the way in order to do. Now the lack was taking its toll. I was having withdrawal symptoms. #Quote by Lynne Sharon Schwartz

Book quotes by David Graeber
#153. If we let everyone decide for themselves how they were best fit to benefit humanity, with no restrictions at all, how could they possibly end up with a distribution of labor more inefficient than the one we already have? This is a powerful argument for human freedom. Most of us like to talk about freedom in the abstract, even claim that it's the most important thing for anyone to fight or die for, but we don't think a lot about what being free or practicing freedom might actually mean. The main point of this book was not to propose concrete policy prescriptions, but to start us thinking about arguing about what a genuine free society might actually be like. #Quote by David Graeber
Book quotes by Thomas Carlyle
#154. In books lies the soul of the whole Past Time: the articulate audible voice of the Past, when the body and material substance of it has altogether vanished like a dream. #Quote by Thomas Carlyle

Actually, screenplays were much more detailed than what I did in the book In the book I had to invent a style for communicating what the sensation of looking at a film would be, whereas the screenplays I wrote in Paris were actual blueprints for how to do the film, with every gesture, every little movement noted in exhaustive detail. #Quote by Paul Auster

Book quotes by Michael Hardt
#158. Through luminous and erudite readings of the texts, Hasana Sharp shows us how profound and radical is Spinoza's conception of nature and his claim that humans always remain part of nature, acting solely according to the same rules. She demonstrates the political consequences of adopting this perspective through a provocative intervention in contemporary feminist theory, while along the way opening promising avenues for future work in a variety of other fields, such as animal studies and ecology. This is a challenging and important book. #Quote by Michael Hardt
Book quotes by Giacomo Casanova
#159. The theory of behavior is useful to the life of man only as the index is useful to him who goes through it before reading the book itself; when he has read it, all that he has learned is the subject matter. Such is the moral teaching that we receive from the discourses, the precepts, and the stories we are treated to by those who bring us up. We listen to it all attentively; but when we have an opportunity to profit by the various advice we have been given, we become possessed by a desire to see if the thing will turn out to be what we have been told it will; we do it, and we are punished by repentance. What recompenses us a little is that in such moments we consider ourselves wise and hence entitled to teach others. Those whom we teach do exactly as we did, from which it follows that the world always stands still or goes from bad to worse. #Quote by Giacomo Casanova
Book quotes by J.C. Ryle

Book quotes by Nancy Gibbs
#162. Time dissolves in summer anyway: days are long, weekends longer. Hours get all thin and watery when you are lost in the book you'd never otherwise have time to read. Senses are sharper - something about the moist air and bright light and fruit in season - and so memories stir and startle. #Quote by Nancy Gibbs

Book quotes by Orhan Pamuk
#167. You can't start out again in life, that's a carriage ride you only take once, but with a book in your hand, no matter how confusing and perplexing it might be, once you've finished it, you can always go back to the beginning; if you like, you can read it through again, in order to figure out what you couldn't understand before, in order to understand life. #Quote by Orhan Pamuk

Book quotes by James Campion Conway
#171. The morning after my mother's death, I was surprised to see the sunrise. From behind the curtain of my bedroom window I was surprised to see the people leave their homes and begin the day. Downstairs, the hands of the grandfather clock continued to tick, marking each passing hour with a chime that echoed over the black and white chessboard tiles of the front hall. I was surprised to see the mail come at the same time as the day before and, later that evening, the sun set once more as it did since the beginning of time. My mother's death did not disturb the planets in their courses. And, though everything kept moving like she never existed at all, my world erupted into chaos until the universe swirled around me like a whirlpool of scattering stars. #Quote by James Campion Conway
Book quotes by Jeanette Winterson
#172. Books, for me, are a home. Books don't make a home--they are one, in the sense that just as you do with a door, you open a book, and you go inside. Inside there is a different kind of time and a different kind of space. #Quote by Jeanette Winterson

Book quotes by Catriona Malan
#175. The Book Lover:-

See how I have come up in the World, because of my books.
I pull the covers agape, pages release their cargo and words fly like birds each with its own song.
Listen, and vowels will breathe like flutes in your head,
Consonants tick-tack like woodpeckers, and sibilants, sly as asps, bite the plosives that pop from our pressed lips.
A picture worth a thousand words?
You paint a score of trees, dark needled, stippled and stroked across your canvas:
My book say 'forrest' (Feel that Pine green touch)

You wash your paper with azures and turquoise, set ship after ship, sails wind-pregnant,
As far as the daubed horizon: my books say 'armada'. (Smell that sea-green scent)

Art's shape is their noun, its colour their objective,
Its tone their adverb; my books match the grammar of landscapes.

This book may say 'Socrates' secrets,
Freud's autopsy of actions or Heaney's verses;
Every idea dreamed by man caught, black stamped for all time, within its cardboard confines.
Here the past speaks to us, as the future will, in the language of our senses.

Step up book by book-
In time, you will reach the stars. #Quote by Catriona Malan
Book quotes by Loren Eiseley
#176. Man no longer dreams over a book in which a soft voice, a constant companion, observes, exhorts, or sighs with him through the pangs of youth and age. Today he is more likely to sit before a screen and dream the mass dream which comes from outside. #Quote by Loren Eiseley
Book quotes by Mary Stewart

Book quotes by Richard Grossman
#179. My books are not about different components that fit together like pieces in a jigsaw puzzle, it's about creating the space around the components, which is almost as important as the components themselves. And that space changes and blends depending upon what the components are. #Quote by Richard Grossman

#Quote by Carlos Fuentes
Book quotes by Ezra Taft Benson
#182. One of our Church educators published what he purports to be a history of the Church's stand on the question of organic evolution. His thesis challenges the integrity of a prophet of God. He suggests that Joseph Fielding Smith published his work, Man: His Origin and Destiny, against the counsel of the First Presidency and his own Brethren. This writer's interpretation is not only inaccurate, but it also runs counter to the testimony of Elder Mark E. Petersen, who wrote this foreword to Elder Smith's book, a book I would encourage all to read. Elder Petersen said:

Some of us [members of the Council of the Twelve] urged [Elder Joseph Fielding Smith] to write a book on the creation of the world and the origin of man.... The present volume is the result. It is a most remarkable presentation of material from both sources [science and religion] under discussion. It will fill a great need in the Church and will be particularly invaluable to students who have become confused by the misapplication of information derived from scientific experimentation.


When one understands that the author to whom I alluded is an exponent of the theory of organic evolution, his motive in disparaging President Joseph Fielding Smith becomes apparent. To hold to a private opinion on such matters is one thing, but when one undertakes to publish his views to discredit the work of a prophet, it is a very serious matter.

It is also apparent to all who have the Spirit o #Quote by Ezra Taft Benson

#185. The ultimate luxury is to reread: to revisit a book to see how time has treated it, how memory has distorted it, or how my own passing years have cast a new light on it. #Quote by Michael Upchurch
Book quotes by Edgar Allan Poe
#186. How many good books suffer neglect through the inefficiency of their beginnings! #Quote by Edgar Allan Poe
Book quotes by Clifford Geertz
#187. I'm writing a review of three books on feminism and science, and it's about social constructionism. So I would say I'm a social constructionist, whatever that means. #Quote by Clifford Geertz
Book quotes by Bella Andre
#188. As a lifelong romance reader (who devours up to a book a day when my writing schedule permits!), my favorite romances have always been about families. I love following brothers and sisters and cousins from book to book, not only for the pleasure of watching them fall in love, but also to watch each of their love stories grow deeper and richer throughout the series. #Quote by Bella Andre
Book quotes by J.D. Robb
#189. Abracadabra," Roarke stated, and opened it.
"Now that's more like it." Hunkered down beside him, Eve studied the neat stacks of cash. "This is how he stayed out of a cage so long. No credit, no e-transfers. Cash on the line. And a file box, loaded with discs and vids."
"Best of all." Roarke reached in, took out a PPC. "His personal palm, very likely uninfected and chock-full of interesting data."
"Let's load it up, get it in." She pulled out her memo book.
"What're you doing?"
"Logging the entry. I better not see any of that green stuff or those baubles go into your pockets, Ace."
"Now I'm offended." He straightened, brushed at his shirt. "If I nipped anything, you can bet your ass you wouldn't see me do it. #Quote by J.D. Robb
Book quotes by Andrea Gibson
#190. I'm good at loving books. I'm good at loving soft bed sheets. I'm good at loving coffees and teas. I am good at loving things that can't love me back, that don't have the power to leave. And maybe, that's why I love them. #Quote by Andrea Gibson
Book quotes by Donella H. Meadows
#191. My word processor has spell-check capability, which lets me add words that didn't originally come in its comprehensive dictionary. It's interesting to see what words I had to add when writing this book: feedback, throughput, overshoot, self-organization, sustainability. #Quote by Donella H. Meadows
Book quotes by Vergielyn
#192. When I'm crusty and old, either of these two sentences will be constantly uttered by my wrinkled mouth.

Yes, I was once on the NY Times Best Seller's List,or,Yeah, I wrote that book that only earned a few pennies

Either of the two makes me a writer, and that's what matters. #Quote by Vergielyn
Book quotes by Robert Winston
#193. Much as I like and admire Richard Dawkins, I do think that to call a book 'The God Delusion' is very worrying because the title implies that if you don't believe in what I believe then you are 'deluded.' That, I think, is a dangerous concept and one that is unlikely to win hearts and minds. #Quote by Robert Winston
Book quotes by G.K. Chesterton
#194. Somewhere embedded in every ordinary book are the five or six words for which really all the rest will be written. #Quote by G.K. Chesterton
Book quotes by Matt Haig
#195. And most of all, books. They were, in and of themselves, reasons to stay alive. Every book written is the product of a human mind in a particular state. Add all the books together and you get the end sum of humanity. Every time I read a great book I felt I was reading a kind of map, a treasure map, and the treasure I was being directed to was in actual fact myself. #Quote by Matt Haig
Book quotes by Robin Sacredfire
#196. Nobody fights over the opinion of which book is better. So why do we fight over which religion is better, if they're all based on books? Let us read and learn from them all and unite in our differences and disagreements too. #Quote by Robin Sacredfire
Book quotes by Cornelia Funke
#197. We all know what fun it can be to get right into a book and live there for a while, but falling out of a story and suddenly finding yourself in this world doesn't seem to be much fun at all. #Quote by Cornelia Funke
Book quotes by John C. Maxwell
#198. 42% of college graduates never read a book after college. #Quote by John C. Maxwell
Book quotes by David McCullough
#199. Nothing ever invented provides such sustenance, such infinite reward for time spent, as a good book. #Quote by David McCullough
Book quotes by Charles Lamb
#200. A presentation copy ... is a copy of a book whoch does not sell, sent you by the author, with his foolish autograph at the beginning of it; for which, if a stranger, he only demands your friendship; if a brother author, he expects from you a book of yours, which does not sell, in return. #Quote by Charles Lamb
