Kill The Book quotes by Sam Raimi
#1. Every filmmaker knows that when you make a book into a movie, the first thing you have to do is kill the book, unfortunately. You've got to recreate it. #Quote by Sam Raimi
Kill The Book quotes by Tom Perrotta
#2. Actually, he hadn't just complained; she'd come home from school one afternoon and found him stabbing his paperback edition with a steak knife, the tip of the blade penetrating the cover and sinking far enough down into the early chapters that he sometimes had trouble pulling it out. When she asked him what he was doing, he explained in a calm and serious voice that he was trying to kill the book before it killed him. #Quote by Tom Perrotta
Kill The Book quotes by Jessica Lange
#3. Digital doesn't interest me. It's too many steps removed from the actual tactile thing. I still read books. I don't read online. #Quote by Jessica Lange
Kill The Book quotes by Bobby Fischer
#4. Maybe I should publish the book. The world is coming to an end anyway! #Quote by Bobby Fischer
Kill The Book quotes by Robert Baldwin Ross
#5. Telling one's friends to buy a book is a waste of time. One has to produce it from one's pocket and press it into their hands. The least one can hope for is that they'll leave it lying about in their drawing-rooms and talk as though they'd read it. #Quote by Robert Baldwin Ross
Kill The Book quotes by Bobby Fischer
#6. I read a book lately by Nietzsche and he says religion is just to dull the senses of the people. I agree. #Quote by Bobby Fischer
Kill The Book quotes by Deb Caletti
#7. We are all a volume on a shelf of a library, a story unto ourselves, never possibly described with one word or even very accurately with thousands. A person is never as quiet or unrestrained as they seem, or as bad or good, as vulnerable or as strong, as sweet or as fiesty; we are thickly layered, page upon lying page, behind simple covers. And love - it is not the book itself, but the binding. It can rip us apart or hold us together. #Quote by Deb Caletti
Kill The Book quotes by J.R. Ward
#8. Rehvenge bowed his head. "I'm just glad you'll have me."
The words were so quiet and humble, at odds with the incredible breadth of his shoulders.
"How could I not?"
He shook his head back and forth slowly. "Ehlena…"
Her name was spoken roughly, as if there were a lot more words behind it, words he couldn't bear to speak.
She didn't understand, but she knew what she wanted to do.
Ehlena took her foot from him, got down on her own knees, and wrapped her arms around him.
She held him as he leaned into her, running one hand up the back of his neck to his mohawk's stripe of soft hair.
He seemed so fragile as he gave himself up to her, and she realized that if anyone tried to hurt him, even though he could more than take care of himself, she would commit murder.
To protect him, she would kill.
The conviction was as solid as the bones beneath her skin: Even the powerful needed protection sometimes.

-Rehv & Ehlena #Quote by J.R. Ward
Kill The Book quotes by Michael Skolnik
#9. Go to countries where you don't speak the language. Eat food that looks like you may not like it. Read all of the holy books. #Quote by Michael Skolnik
Kill The Book quotes by Frances Hardinge
#10. Just for a moment it reminded not-Triss of drawings she had seen in magazines and on book jackets, of pastel-colored parties where languid, fashionable women slunk and posed, slim and elegant as fish, and gentlemen passed them flutes of fat-bubbled champagne.
The impression did not last long, however. The scene around her was too jarringly and robustly real. The accents were all too Ellchester, and some of the girls had knobbly ankles. #Quote by Frances Hardinge
Kill The Book quotes by Jamaica Kincaid
#11. Of course his life could be found in the pages of a book; I had just begun to notice that the lives of men always are. #Quote by Jamaica Kincaid
Kill The Book quotes by Sandra Tsing Loh
#12. You go into the book store, there's the cut-out of Dr. Phil, and then the dreaded women's health section where every book, instead of the menopause book with the fanged Medusa head on the cover that might be more pertinent, you always see a flower and a poppy and a daisy and a stethoscope. #Quote by Sandra Tsing Loh
Kill The Book quotes by Adrian McKinty
#13. 'The Man in the High Castle' was not the first alternative history novel, nor even the first Nazis-win-the-war novel, but it is still probably the most influential book in the genre. #Quote by Adrian McKinty
Kill The Book quotes by Mark Thompson
#14. Imagine that you are stuck on a long train ride and must choose one of two books to read in order to pass the time: the first is a novel whose main character is an office worker who is essentially working to pay his monthly cable bill; the second is about someone who decides to travel in South America (and of course encounters various setbacks in the process), but who pushes beyond the boundaries of conventional American life. Which ... book would you pick up to read? Indeed, which of the two characters would you rather be? #Quote by Mark Thompson
Kill The Book quotes by Allan Rufus
#15. Negative Thoughts, Actions
and Deeds Create Emotions,
and these Emotions WILL


"Positive Thoughts,
Actions and Deeds

Choose Wisely! #Quote by Allan Rufus
Kill The Book quotes by Ella Frank
#16. I focus on the words in front of me and continue reading the book that has now turned me into a voyeur through no fault of its own. #Quote by Ella Frank
Kill The Book quotes by Celeste Ng
#17. All their lives Nath had understood, better than anyone, the lexicon of their family, the things they could never truly explain to outsiders: that a book or a dress meant more than something to read or something to wear; that attention came with expectations that - like snow - drifted and settled and crushed you with their weight. All the words were right, but in this new Nath's voice, they sounded trivial and brittle and hollow. The way anyone else might have heard them. Already her brother had become a stranger. #Quote by Celeste Ng
Kill The Book quotes by Joel Osteen
#18. If you are worried that no one has sent you nice notes, given you credit, or offered a compliment that you can put in an Encouragement File, I have a solution. Write yourself some nice letters. Write down what you like about yourself. List your strengths. List your accomplishments. List some of the good things you've done for others.
When nobody else celebrates you, learn to celebrate yourself. When nobody else compliments you, compliment yourself. It's not up to other people to keep you encouraged. It's up to you. It should come from the inside.
This is what God did. He praised Himself. We're told in the book of Genesis that God created the waters and He said, "That was good." He created the sky and He said, "That was good." He created the fish and the animals and He stepped back and said, "That was good." He created you and me and said, "That was really good."
I love the fact that God praised Himself. Most of the time we are so critical of ourselves, and so focused on what we've done wrong, we never even think about complimenting ourselves. #Quote by Joel Osteen
Kill The Book quotes by Chloe Thurlow
#19. 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
Kill The Book quotes by Kate Avery Ellison
#20. You're ruining that book!" He pointed to the page I'd torn out. "That's a perfectly good book!" Holding his gaze, I reached down and ripped another page out. "I'm making roses." "Well, it's my book." "Sorry." I tore out another. #Quote by Kate Avery Ellison
Kill The Book quotes by F.B. Meyer
#21. No other style of preaching can so completely guarantee immunity from an indulgence in special crochets and fads. The Bible is an exceedingly broad book in its treatment of life and, he who successfully preaches through, even one small section of it, will find a variety of subjects and principles and lessons
so great a variety that if he is fair with all he will be saved from the error of over-emphasis and of neglecting certain broad tracts of truth. #Quote by F.B. Meyer
Kill The Book quotes by Nancy S.  Thompson
#22. The lyrics,
'Tell me would you kill to save a life...would you kill to prove you're right?'
They've often made me wonder, what would make a good man do know, really awful, like kill or whatever. And well, now...I guess I have my answer don't I? #Quote by Nancy S. Thompson
Kill The Book quotes by George Orwell
#23. The past is a curious thing. It's with you all the time. I suppose an hour never passes without your thinking of things that happened ten or twenty years ago, and yet most of the time it's got no reality, it's just a set of facts that you've learned, like a lot of stuff in a history book. Then some chance sight or sound or smell, especially smell, sets you going, and the past doesn't merely come back to you, you're actually IN the past. It was like that at this moment. #Quote by George Orwell
Kill The Book quotes by Mercedes Lackey
#24. A book's alright when the weather's foul and there's nothing else to do, but why sit and read when the wind is calling your name? #Quote by Mercedes Lackey
Kill The Book quotes by Dan Wells
#25. Cavity embalming has the same general purpose as arterial embalming: you take the old fluids out and put new fluids in, to kill bacteria and halt decomposition long enough for a viewing and a funeral. But whereas arterial embalming used the body's natural circulatory system to make the job easy, cavity embalming involved a lot of individual organs and unconnected spaces that had to be dealt with one by one. We accomplished this with a tool called a trocar - basically a long, bladed nozzle attached to a vacuum. We used the trocar to puncture a body and suck out the gunk, a process called 'aspiration', and then once we'd sucked everything out we cleaned the trocar and attached it to a different tube, so it could drizzle in another chemical cocktail similar to the one we put in the arteries. #Quote by Dan Wells
Kill The Book quotes by Christopher Hitchens
#26. To return to my point about the immense power that his enemies attribute to him, Orwell once wrote about the 'large, vague renown' that constituted the popular memory of Thomas Carlyle. His own reputation has long been of that kind, if not rather greater and more precise. But this is not the same as moving millions to despair and apathy (Deutscher), or spoiling the morale of a whole generation (Williams), or authoring a work of fiction that was in fact, in rather cunning disguise, the work of an entire 'culture' (Thompson). In some semi-articulated way, many major figures of the Left have thought of Orwell as an enemy, and an important and frightening one.

This was true to a somewhat lesser extent in his own lifetime. And, again, the dislike or distrust can be illustrated by a simple - or at any rate a simple-minded - confusion of categories. It was widely said, and believed, of Orwell that he had written the damning sentence: 'The working classes smell.' This statement of combined snobbery and heresy was supposedly to be found in The Road to Wigan Pier; in other words - since the book was a main selection of Victor Gollancz's Left Book Club - it could be checked and consulted. But it obviously never was checked or consulted, because in those pages Orwell only says that middle-class people, such as his own immediate forebears, were convinced that the working classes smelled. Victor Gollancz himself, though hopelessly at odds with Orwell in matters of politics, issu #Quote by Christopher Hitchens
Kill The Book quotes by Italo Calvino
#27. You fasten your seatbelt. The plane is landing. To fly is the opposite of traveling: you cross a gap in space, you vanish into the void, you accept not being in any place for a duration that is itself a kind of void in time; then you reappear, in a place and in a moment with no relation to the where and the when in which you vanished. Meanwhile, what do you do? How do you occupy this absence of yourself from the world and of the world from you?" You read; you do not raise your eyes from the book between one airport and the other, because beyond the page there is the void, the anonymity of stopovers, of the metallic uterus that contains you and nourishes you, of the passing crowd always different and always the same. You might as well stick with this other abstraction of travel, accomplished by the anonymous uniformity of typographical characters: here, too, it is the evocative power of the names that persuades you that you are flying over something and not nothingness. You realize that it takes considerable heedlessness to entrust yourself to unsure instruments, handled with approximation; or perhaps this demonstrates and invincible tendency to passivity, to regression, to infantile dependence. (But are you reflecting on the air journey or on reading?) #Quote by Italo Calvino
Kill The Book quotes by James  McLaughlin
#28. The only thing better than a good book is a really good book! #Quote by James McLaughlin
Kill The Book quotes by John Cheever
#29. The secret of keeping young is to read children's books. You read the books they write for little children and you'll keep young. You read novels, philosophy, stuff like that and it makes you feel old. #Quote by John Cheever
Kill The Book quotes by Barbara Bergmann
#30. The liberation of women from exclusive domesticity did not originate in feminist books, or a war, or a big inflation, although they contributed to its progress. The rising enrollment of women in the paid labor force is a straightforward consequence of the industrial revolution of two hundred years ago. #Quote by Barbara Bergmann
Kill The Book quotes by Hajjah Amina Adil
#31. I leave you two things, which, if you hold fast to them shall preserve you from all error: the Book of Allah, and my Sunna. Your downfall begins with your departure from these two. #Quote by Hajjah Amina Adil
Kill The Book quotes by Edward Ruscha
#32. Traveling to Europe and traveling in the U.S.A. was a much different experience. 'On the Road' exemplified everything glamorous that was happening on this side of the planet. The book puts off some kind of sweet melody - part hope for the world, part nostalgic. #Quote by Edward Ruscha
Kill The Book quotes by Gautama Buddha
#33. All tremble at violence; all fear death. Putting oneself in the place of another, one should not kill nor cause another to kill. #Quote by Gautama Buddha
Kill The Book quotes by Cath Crowley
#34. I'm up for a Shadow hunt." She tries to let us out, but the lock's stuck. "That's weird."
"Is this like an omen?" Daisy asks.
Jazz unzips her boot and takes it off so she can slam it at the lock. "It's not an omen." Slam. "Tonight." Slam. "Is going to be great." Slam. "I've got a feeling." Slam. She puts her book back on and looks at us. "Okay, we'll have to climb out of here."
She stands on the toilet seat and from there to the toilet-roll holder and then heaves herself over the wall.
"Impresive," I say, and then we hear her slam to the ground.
"Less impressive," Daisy says.
"It doesn't mean anything," Jazz calls. "Trust me. I'm a psychic. #Quote by Cath Crowley
Kill The Book quotes by Daniel Kizlyk
#35. Every time I read a book I try to put myself in the shoes of the king of the track, Ussain Bolt. The man who blew minds has no trouble clearing his own mind and keeping it open. #Quote by Daniel Kizlyk
Kill The Book quotes by Hanya Yanagihara
#36. I have never wanted a family. I don't believe in marriage, though I obviously believe it should be legal for everyone who wants to do it. But it is not something I believe in, nor do the characters in my book, nor do any of my friends. #Quote by Hanya Yanagihara
Kill The Book quotes by Abdu'l- Baha
#37. The human spirit may be likened to the bounty of the sun shining on a mirror. The body of man, ... grows and develops through the animal spirit. #Quote by Abdu'l- Baha
Kill The Book quotes by Barack Obama
#38. From Obama's book, "The Audacity of Hope:" "I am not willing to have the state deny American citizens a civil union that confers equivalent rights on such basic matters as hospital visitation or health insurance coverage simply because the people they love are of the same sex - nor am I willing to accept a reading of the Bible that considers an obscure line in Romans to be more defining of Christianity than the Sermon on the Mount." #Quote by Barack Obama
Kill The Book quotes by Ilona Andrews
#39. Like a primitive savage, who sets out to tame the wilderness armed with nothing but a knife and his indomitable will, I will persevere. I will wrestle victory from the greedy jaws of defeat. I shall rise like a bird of prey upon the current of the wind, my talons raised for the kill, and I shall strike true.
Oh wow. I hope the inn filmed that. #Quote by Ilona Andrews
Kill The Book quotes by Rebecca Solnit
#40. Writers are solitaries by vocation and necessity. I sometimes think the test is not so much talent, which is not as rare as people think, but purpose or vocation, which manifests in part as the ability to endure a lot of solitude and keep working. Before writers are writers they are readers, living in books, through books, in the lives of others that are also the heads of others, in that act that is so intimate and yet so alone. #Quote by Rebecca Solnit
Kill The Book quotes by Hansie Cronje
#41. The very quick and high sales of the book caught us off guard, but fortunately we got the second edition from the printers at the end of last week and the shops should now be stocked again. #Quote by Hansie Cronje
Kill The Book quotes by Andrea Dworkin
#42. All this talk, for and against and about babies, " wrote Charlotte Perkins Gilman, "is by men. One would think the men bore the babies, nursed the babies, reared the babies.. . . The women bear and rear the children. The men kill them. Then they say: 'We are running short of children - make some more. #Quote by Andrea Dworkin
