Libraries Books And Reading quotes by Charles Kingsley
#6. Except a living man there is nothing more wonderful than a book! A message from the dead - from human souls we never saw, who lived, perhaps, thousands of miles away. And yet these, in those little sheets of paper, speak to us, arouse us, terrify us, comfort us, open their hearts to us as brothers. #Quote by Charles Kingsley
Libraries Books And Reading quotes by Joshua Rogers
#7. Reading is a time machine that allows you to acquire wisdom from the past and to analyze and imagine another person's vision of the future. #Quote by Joshua Rogers
Libraries Books And Reading quotes by Jeff Kinney
#8. Kids and adults have a difference of opinion when it comes to what constitutes legitimate reading. Adults often push books that they loved as children, which, ironically, were often books that their parents weren't particularly keen on. #Quote by Jeff Kinney
Libraries Books And Reading quotes by Derek Thompson
#9. When people read, they hear voices and see images in their head. This production is total synesthesia and something close to madness. A great book is an hallucinated IMAX film for one. The author had a feeling, which he turned into words, and the reader gets a feeling from those words - maybe it's the same feeling; maybe it's not. As Peter Mendelsund wrote in What We See When We Read, a book is a coproduction. A reader both performs the book and attends the performance. She is conductor, orchestra, and audience. A book, whether nonfiction of fiction, is an "invitation to daydream. #Quote by Derek Thompson
Libraries Books And Reading quotes by Wu Cheng'en
#10. I was very fond of strange stories when I was a child. In my village-school days, I used to buy stealthily popular novels and historical recitals. Fearing that my father and my teacher might punish me for this and rob me of these treasures, I carefully hid them in secret places where I could enjoy them unmolested. As I grew older, my love for strange stories became even stronger, and I learned of things stranger than what I had read in my childhood. When I was in my thirties, my memory was full of these stories accumulated through years of eager seeking. l have always admired such writers of the T'ang Dynasty as Tuan Ch'eng-shih [author of the Yu-yang tsa-tsu] and Niu Sheng [author of the Hsuan-kuai lu]. Who wrote short stories so excellent in portrayal of men and description of things. I often had the ambition to write a book (of stories) which might be compared with theirs. But I was too lazy to write, and as my laziness persisted, I gradually forgot most of the stories which I had learned. Now only these few stories, less than a score, have survived and have so successfully battled against my laziness that they are at last written down. Hence this Book of Monsters. I have sometimes laughingly said to myself that it is not I who have found these ghosts and monsters, but they, the monstrosities themselves, which have found me! ... Although my book is called a book or monsters, it is not confined to them: it also records the strange things of the human world and sometimes con #Quote by Wu Cheng'en
Libraries Books And Reading quotes by Neil Gaiman
#11. Often the adult book is not for you, not yet, or will only be for you when you're ready. But sometimes you will read it anyway, and you will take from it whatever you can. Then, perhaps, you will come back to it when you're older, and you will find the book has changed because you have changed as well, and the book is wiser, or more foolish, because you are wiser or more foolish than you were as a child. #Quote by Neil Gaiman
Libraries Books And Reading quotes by Jenny Colgan
#12. In short, she self-medicated with books.

(By the way, as the author of this novel, and one who has herself always self-medicated with books, I cannot rightfully attest or deny whether this is a better way of dealing with 'real life' than any other. In fact, as a reader (all writers are just readers one step to the side), I'm not actually sure I believe in this 'real life'. I know it is a terrible betrayal to say this, but come on, aren't books - whisper it - quite a lot better in real life? In books, baddies get blown up or chopped up or sent to prison. In real life, they're your boss or your ex. In books, you get to know what happened. In real life, sometimes you don't get to know what happened ever. They're not even sure they've found Amelia Earhart. So. Books are absolutely the thing in my opinion, or as the old saying goes: whatever gets you through the night (which I should say is also books. Books get you through the night).) #Quote by Jenny Colgan
Libraries Books And Reading quotes by Gail Carson Levine
#13. There's nothing wrong with reading a book you love over and over. When you do, the words get inside you, become a part of you, in a way that words in a book you've read only once can't. #Quote by Gail Carson Levine
Libraries Books And Reading quotes by Rudolf Flesch
#14. What are we after when we open one of those books? What is it that makes a classic a classic? ... in old-fashioned terms, the answer is that it wll elevate your spirit. And that's why I can't take much stock in the idea of going through a list of books or 'covering' a fixed number of selections, or anyway striving for the blessed state of having read this, or the other. Having read a book means nothing. Reading a book may be the most tremendous experience of your life; having read it is an item in your memory, part of your receding past ... Why we have that odd faith in the magic of having read a book, I don't know. We don't apply the same principle elsewhere: We don't believe in having heard Mendelssohn's violin concerto ...
I say, don't read the classics
try to discover your own classics; every life has its own. #Quote by Rudolf Flesch
Libraries Books And Reading quotes by Milan Kundera
#15. Fortunately, I read (the books) without knowing what I was in for, and the best thing that can ever happen to a reader happened to me: I loved something that, by conviction (or by my nature) I should not have loved #Quote by Milan Kundera
Libraries Books And Reading quotes by Francis Bacon
#16. Read not to contradict and confute; nor to believe and take for granted; nor to find talk and discourse; but to weigh and consider. Some books are to be tasted, others to be swallowed, and some few to be chewed and digested: that is, some books are to be read only in parts, others to be read, but not curiously, and some few to be read wholly, and with diligence and attention. #Quote by Francis Bacon
Libraries Books And Reading quotes by -J. Kelly
#17. Kids say the number one reason they don't read more is that they can't find books they like. We need to find those books. The more kids read, the better readers they become. Reading makes us smarter and wiser, gives us a sense of accomplishment, builds confidence, and stimulates creativity. #Quote by -J. Kelly
Libraries Books And Reading quotes by Tarryn Fisher
#18. That's the nature of the truth, though. What's fun about being dropped into ice water? That's why half the world walks around wearing rose-colored glasses, watching comedies and reading romance books. #Quote by Tarryn Fisher
Libraries Books And Reading quotes by Donalyn Miller
#19. Every book begins and ends with other people- the readers who suggest the book to us and encourage us to read it, the talented author who crafted each word, the fascinating individuals we meet inside the pages- and the readers we discuss and share the book with when we finish. #Quote by Donalyn Miller
Libraries Books And Reading quotes by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
#20. Give yourself unto reading. The man who never reads will never be read; he who never quotes will never be quoted. He who will not use the thoughts of other men's brains, proves that he has no brains of his own. You need to read.
We are quite persuaded that the very best way for you to be spending your leisure time, is to be either reading or praying. You may get much instruction from books which afterwards you may use as a true weapon in your Lord and Master's service. Paul cries, "Bring the books" - join in the cry. #Quote by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
Libraries Books And Reading quotes by Keith Donohue
#21. Write it down, boy. If you come across a passage in your reading that you'd like to remember, write it down in your little book; then you can read it again, memorize it, and have it whenever you wish. #Quote by Keith Donohue
Libraries Books And Reading quotes by Norman Davies
#22. Historians usually focus their attention on the past of countries that still exist, writing hundreds and thousands of books on British history, French history, German history, Russian history, American history, Chinese history, Indian history, Brazilian history or whatever. Whether consciously or not, they are seeking the roots of the present, thereby putting themselves in danger of reading history backwards. As soon as great powers arise, whether the United States in the twentieth century or China in the twenty-first, the call goes out for offerings on American History or Chinese History, and siren voices sing that today's important countries are also those whose past is most deserving of examination, that a more comprehensive spectrum of historical knowledge can be safely ignored. #Quote by Norman Davies
Libraries Books And Reading quotes by Nadine Rose Larter
#23. Loving Sarah was like reading a particularly good book. That pressing and overwhelming need to just devour it as fast as possible is matched only by the need to savour it slowly and completely, lest all come to an end too soon. The all-consuming emotions are so many and varied that it is almost impossible to pick out one for a few minutes attention. They mainly stay jumbled and unattended, and for the most part not entirely understood or satisfied. But then, maybe it is in the understanding of our love for someone that the love itself disappears altogether. If so, then I don't want to understand, and I remain content to simply experience her. Somehow, the more I learn about Sarah, the better I understand myself.
And the more I fall in love. #Quote by Nadine Rose Larter
Libraries Books And Reading quotes by Gordon B. Hinckley
#24. I love libraries. I love books. There is something sacred, I think, about a great library because it represents the preservation of the wisdom, the learning, the pondering, of men and women of all the ages accumulated together under one roof to which we can have access as our needs require. #Quote by Gordon B. Hinckley
Libraries Books And Reading quotes by Timothy Keller
#25. Unless you first do the hard work of answering those questions about a text, your meditations won't be grounded in what God is actually saying in the passage. Something in the passage may "hit" you - but it may hit you as expressing almost the opposite of what the biblical author, inspired by the Spirit, was saying. When that happens, you are listening to your own heart or to the spirit of your own culture, not to God's voice in the Scripture. A great number of books advise "divine reading" of the Bible today, and define the activity uncarefully as reading "not for information but to hear a personal word of God to you." This presents a false contrast. It is certainly true that meditation personalizes the Word, but before we can meditate on what the text personally means to us and our time, we must first need to know as much as possible what the author meant to say to his readers when he wrote it. #Quote by Timothy Keller
Libraries Books And Reading quotes by John Green
#26. Books are beautiful for reading and they're also beautiful for holding. #Quote by John Green
Libraries Books And Reading quotes by Lauren Barnholdt
#27. The thing about me and books is that whichever one I'm reading always reminds me of whatever's happening in my life during that time. #Quote by Lauren Barnholdt
Libraries Books And Reading quotes by Elias Canetti
#28. In five minutes the earth would be a desert, and you cling to books. #Quote by Elias Canetti
Libraries Books And Reading quotes by Richelle E. Goodrich
#29. When a person reaches the end of a book and says, 'I want to read that again,' what he's actually saying is that he wants to mentally merge with his favorite character and stroll among all the other creative personalities, feeding a hungry imagination through the vicarious reliving of each and every wild chapter that stirred his emotions, the whole while surrendering to a safe yet daring existence where any crazy, hopeful thing can and does happen. That's all. #Quote by Richelle E. Goodrich
Libraries Books And Reading quotes by Virginia Woolf
#30. Few people ask from books what books can give us. Most commonly we come to books with blurred and divided minds, asking of fiction that it shall be true, of poetry that it shall be false, of biography that it shall be flattering, of history that it shall enforce our own prejudices. If we could banish all such preconceptions when we read, that would be an admirable beginning. #Quote by Virginia Woolf
Libraries Books And Reading quotes by Peter Guber
#31. My mom used to tell me stories at night, read books to me - and I read 'em over and over and over again. And you know what I learned from that? I went back and looked at everything - Why do I like reading the same stories over and over and over again? What, was I some kind of nincompoop? No - the narrative gave me connection with my mom. #Quote by Peter Guber
Libraries Books And Reading quotes by Sherman Alexie
#32. I didn't belong
Because maybe I never wanted
To belong. When everybody else danced and sang,
I sat silently in my room with books,
Books, and books. I used books for self-defense

And as stealth bombers: I am better than you
Because I have read more books than you; I am
Beloved by these books; I am beloved by words. #Quote by Sherman Alexie
Libraries Books And Reading quotes by Bill Bryson
#33. So I decided to do it [hike the Appalachian Trail]. More rashly, I announced my intention - told friends and neighbors, confidently informed my publisher, made it common knowledge among those who knew me. Then I bought some books ... It required only a little light reading in adventure books and almost no imagination to envision circumstances in which I would find myself caught in a tightening circle of hunger-emboldened wolves, staggering and shredding clothes under an onslaught of pincered fire ants, or dumbly transfixed by the sight of enlivened undergrowth advancing towards me, like a torpedo through water, before being bowled backwards by a sofa-sized boar with cold beady eyes, a piercing squeal, and slaverous, chopping appetite for pink, plump, city-softened flesh. #Quote by Bill Bryson
Libraries Books And Reading quotes by Danika Stone
#34. Trapped on a school bus for an hour each morning and each evening, she devoured book after book. She explored a hundred worlds, indifferent to her peers and the passing of the universe. #Quote by Danika Stone
Libraries Books And Reading quotes by Linda Sue Park
#35. When I was reading books for 'Seesaw Girl,' I came across several references to the fact that in the 11th and 12th centuries, Korean pottery was considered the finest in the world. I liked that - the idea of a little tiny country being the best at something. #Quote by Linda Sue Park
Libraries Books And Reading quotes by Brandon Sanderson
#36. Or you could be a serial killer who specializes in reading books, then seeking out the authors and murdering them in horrible ways. (If you happen to fall into that last category, you should know that my name isn't really Alcatraz Smedry, nor is it Brandon Sanderson. My name is in fact Garth Nix, and you can find me in Australia. Oh, and I insulted your mother once. What're you going to do about it, huh?) #Quote by Brandon Sanderson
Libraries Books And Reading quotes by Diana Wynne Jones
#37. After this, Boy became very curious about the mansion where the clothes and the food came from. He made me describe everything. Then he asked Good Thing 'Are there books in this mansion, too?'
'And pictures and jewels,' Good Thing said through me. 'What does Master wish me to fetch? There is a golden harp, a musical box like a bird, a - '
'Just books,' said Boy. 'I need to learn. I'm still so ignorant. #Quote by Diana Wynne Jones
Libraries Books And Reading quotes by Anna Quindlen
#38. Books are the plane, and the train, and the road. They are the destination, and the journey. They are home. #Quote by Anna Quindlen
Libraries Books And Reading quotes by Neena H. Brar
#39. What does reading mean to me? For me it is like breathing, so vital, so basal, a necessity I cannot live without. Reading is my comfort and my retreat. Without reading I can exist, but I cannot thrive. #Quote by Neena H. Brar
Libraries Books And Reading quotes by Neil Gaiman
#40. I was one those kids who had books on them. Before weddings, Bar Mitzvahs, funerals and anything else where you're actually meant to not be reading, my family would frisk me and take the book away. If they didn't find it by this point in the procedure, I would be sitting over in that corner completely unnoticed just reading my book. #Quote by Neil Gaiman
Libraries Books And Reading quotes by Christopher Moore
#41. [Acknowledgments] I recommend them all for further reading, but when you're finished, you may have to read several of my books and watch a lot of TV just to get stupid enough to function in the modern world again. #Quote by Christopher Moore
Libraries Books And Reading quotes by Jodi Picoult
#42. This must be what an addict feels like, I think,
trying to fight the pull of one last, quick read. My fingers itch toward the binding, and finally, with a sigh of regret, I just grab the book and open it, hungrily reading the story. #Quote by Jodi Picoult
Libraries Books And Reading quotes by Jack Gantos
#43. Since I was trying so hard to make books lead my life, I didn't want to read them and then just put them back on the shelf and say, "good book," as if I was patting a good dog. I wanted books to change me, and I wanted to write books that would change others. #Quote by Jack Gantos
Libraries Books And Reading quotes by Mehmet Murat Ildan
#44. If you are not reading and thinking, it means that your windows looking to the ocean are closed! #Quote by Mehmet Murat Ildan
