Reading Books quotes by Matthew Henry
#1. 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

Reading Books quotes by Shaukat Siddiqui
#4. You search for life sitting in closed rooms and reading books, and I have seen life in the brothel. I have seen life in small huts and narrow, dark alleyways... Look at life with the naked eye, and see the extent to which it has become a victim. #Quote by Shaukat Siddiqui

Reading Books quotes by Vernon Howard
#6. Many of us knock on the door but remain outside, because knocking and entering are entirely different actions. Knocking is necessary, consisting of reading books, attending meetings, asking questions. But entrance requires much bolder action. It requires one to enter into himself, to uncover hidden motives, to see contradictions, and to realize his actual power for self-change. #Quote by Vernon Howard
Reading Books quotes by Benito Perez Galdos
#7. Reading was artificial borrowed life, benefiting from ideas and sensations transmitted cerebrally, acquiring the treasures of human truth by purchase or swindle, not by work. #Quote by Benito Perez Galdos

Reading Books quotes by Margaret Geller
#11. I never had a single female professor throughout my whole education, from the beginning of university to the end. Even all the books were about men; I never really liked reading books about the history of science, and I never really understood why. #Quote by Margaret Geller
Reading Books quotes by W.E.B. Du Bois
#12. When you have mastered numbers, you will in fact no longer be reading numbers, any more than you read words when reading books. You will be reading meanings. #Quote by W.E.B. Du Bois

#13. Books, I don't know what you see in them. I can understand a person reading them, but I can't for the life of me see why people have to write them. #Quote by Peter Ustinov

You learn only by receiving blows. #Quote by Swami Prajnanpad

Reading Books quotes by Theodore Roosevelt
#17. The reader, the booklover, must meet his own needs without paying too much attention to what his neighbors say those needs should be. #Quote by Theodore Roosevelt

Reading Books quotes by Daniel Pennac

Reading Books quotes by Daniel D. Maurer
#21. At both school and at home, I lost myself in books. #Quote by Daniel D. Maurer
Reading Books quotes by Philip Hensher
#22. It [fiction] allows us to see the world from the point of view of someone else and there has been quite a lot of neurological research that shows reading novels is actually good for you. It embeds you in society and makes you think about other people. People are certainly better at all sorts of things if they can hold a novel in their heads. It is quite a skill, but if you can't do it then you're missing out on something in life. I think you can tell, when you meet someone, whether they read novels or not. There is some little hollowness if they don't. #Quote by Philip Hensher
Reading Books quotes by C.S. Lewis
#23. Remember that there are only three kinds of things anyone need ever do. (1) Things we ought to do (2) Things we've got to do (3) Things we like doing. I say this because some people seem to spend so much of their time doing things for none of these three reasons, things like reading books they don't like because other people read them. #Quote by C.S. Lewis
Reading Books quotes by Leonard Mlodinow
#24. You're wasting your time," he said. "You don't learn how to discover things by reading books on it. And psychology is a bunch of bullshit. #Quote by Leonard Mlodinow
Reading Books quotes by Haidy Santos
#25. I have always been passionate about travelling. Credits to the books for they were invented. If not, I might not be able to reach my dream. #Quote by Haidy Santos
Reading Books quotes by Wendy Welch
#26. The essential criterion for running a bookstore is less "Do you like books?" than "Do you like people?" Ironically, we find that having unlimited access to more reading material than we ever could have imagined means we read less. Chuck and Dee Robinson own Village Books [...]He once said in an interview with business writer Rober Spector, "If you're opening a bookstore because you love reading books, then become a night watchman because you'll be able to read more books that way." He was right. It's amazing how just the sight of so much intellectual fodder quells the appetite, let alone how little time remains to read once the shelves have been straightened, the day's swap credits assessed and put away, and the sales taxes tallied. #Quote by Wendy Welch
Reading Books quotes by Charles Van Doren
#27. Some of you read with me 40 years ago a portion of Aristotle's Ethics, a selection of passages that describe his idea of happiness. You may not remember too well. #Quote by Charles Van Doren
Reading Books quotes by Marjane Satrapi
#28. Where are you going on vacation?"
"Nowhere. I'm going to read. I love reading. #Quote by Marjane Satrapi
Reading Books quotes by Anis Mansour
#29. What is more important than reading books; is reading people's faces. #Quote by Anis Mansour
Reading Books quotes by Kate Kerrigan
#30. In this way, I was able to place my own concerns aside and curl myself up in the cocoon of somebody else's imagination. My life was suspended - I was in neither one place nor the other. #Quote by Kate Kerrigan
Reading Books quotes by Louise Walters
#31. I find things hidden in books: dried flowers, locks of hair, tickets, labels, receipt, invoices, photographs, postcards, all manner of cards. I find letters, unpublished works by the ordinary, the anguished, the illiterate. Clumsily written or eloquent, they are love letters, everyday letters, secret letters and mundane letters talking about fruit and babies and tennis matches, from people signing themselves as Majorie or Jean....I can't bring myself to dispose of these snippets and snapshots of lives that once meant (or still do mean) so much. #Quote by Louise Walters
Reading Books quotes by Marina Tsvetaeva
#32. There are books so alive that you're always afraid that while you weren't reading, the book has gone and changed, has shifted like a river; while you went on living, it went on living too, and like a river moved on and moved away. No one has stepped twice into the same river. But did anyone ever step twice into the same book? #Quote by Marina Tsvetaeva
Reading Books quotes by Brandon Sanderson
#33. My behavior is nonetheless, deplorable. Unfortunately, I'm quite prone to such bouts of deplorability
take for instance, my fondness for reading books at the dinner table. #Quote by Brandon Sanderson
Reading Books quotes by Leo Tolstoy
#34. Read the best books first, otherwise you'll find you do not have time.
- Henry David Thoreau #Quote by Leo Tolstoy
Reading Books quotes by Mette Hjort
#35. ...human beings are able to attend to issues longer, to think harder about them, to receive deeper impressions that last longer, if information is presented in a context of emotion--a sort of hot dressing--than if it is presented wholly without affect. #Quote by Mette Hjort
Reading Books quotes by Robin Sacredfire
#36. You will never know the purpose of a book in your life until you read it, and you will never know which book you should be reading until you read many others that you shouldn't. #Quote by Robin Sacredfire
Reading Books quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#37. Reading, writing, and personal introspection will not protect us from hardship and suffering, but they might introduce us to critical thinking and expose us to what is good in humankind and beautiful in the world that we share with all of nature. Contemplative thought, especially that supplemented with reading literature and attempting to write our own replies to the echoing voices of writers whom preceded us provide us with the potentiality for change, the possibility of personal illumination that enables us to experience a heighted quality of life. #Quote by Kilroy J. Oldster
Reading Books quotes by Peter O'Toole
#38. My life is littered with copies of Moby Dick. #Quote by Peter O'Toole
Reading Books quotes by Garrett Hedlund
#39. It's funny that I got to do 'On the Road' because the thing that had the biggest impact on me growing up was reading books. I was very inspired by the book and this spirit of Dean Moriarty and how envious we all are of somebody who can be that carefree. #Quote by Garrett Hedlund
Reading Books quotes by Chris Colfer
#40. Being a best-selling author just means the world for me. Some of my happiest memories, growing up, are being at book stores and reading books I couldn't afford, as a kid, and the midnight parties, waiting for the next Harry Potter book. The fact that I have that straw in my cap means more to me than anything I've ever accomplished before. #Quote by Chris Colfer
Reading Books quotes by Lemony Snicket
#41. Some believe that everyone is born with a moral compass already inside them, like an appendix, or a fear of worms. Others believe that a moral compass develops over time, as a person learns about the decisions of others by observing the world and reading books. In any case, a moral compass appears to be a delicate device, and as people grow older and venture out into the world it often becomes more and more difficult to figure out which direction one's moral compass is pointing, so it is harder and harder to figure out the proper thing to do. #Quote by Lemony Snicket
Reading Books quotes by Sarah Van Arsdale
#42. Good fiction often gives us characters in extremity, which ironically gives us a clearer mirror in which to see ourselves. #Quote by Sarah Van Arsdale
Reading Books quotes by Eraldo Banovac
#43. Reading might be the root of ideas and inventions, even in the case of leisure reading. #Quote by Eraldo Banovac
Reading Books quotes by Nora Roberts
#44. Mary Stewart will always be my goddess. I can pick up one of her early books - one I've read a dozen times - and still slide right into the story. #Quote by Nora Roberts
Reading Books quotes by Tiffini Johnson
#45. Books whose topics I thoroughy depsise are accapteble because they often force the reader to think and to examine his own beliefs. In an age where most people are either blindly obedient or radical, exposing oneself to the ideas contained in even the most controversial of books is a good thing. #Quote by Tiffini Johnson
Reading Books quotes by Linda Hilton
#46. People aren't reading self-published authors because people can't even get past the poor quality of the samples. They aren't reading books they don't want to read. #Quote by Linda Hilton
Reading Books quotes by Paula Stokes
#47. Once I accepted the fact that I was bad luck, I shied away from group activities. And groups. And activities. I started spending a lot of time in my room, tucked under my covers reading books. There's only so much damage a book can do, and I wasn't worried about hurting myself. Accidentally hurting yourself is way better than hurting other people.
Sure, I got lonely for a while. But getting invited to slumber parties just wasn't worth the stress of wondering if I might accidentally burn down the house with my flat iron or be the only survivor of a freak sleepover massacre. And loneliness is just like everything else - if you endure it long enough, you get used to it. #Quote by Paula Stokes
Reading Books quotes by Michelle Franklin
#48. In my desperation to try to lull myself into a gentle sloom, I have created a list of things that will often assist my descent into delicious treacle-sleep. The list includes a series of things I can do if I go to bed and wake up early, and includes things like playing games and reading books, but one item that continually seems to work is telling myself:

The faster I go to sleep, the faster I can have cookies for breakfast.

This idea might seem rudimentary, but it staves off the sulks long enough that I can find a few hours of sleep, even on the hottest of days. If only Biscuit Power worked for other insomniacs, cookies might save humanity from itself. #Quote by Michelle Franklin
Reading Books quotes by Tyrean Martinson
#49. Once upon a time in a basement library nook,
I stumbled upon my first favorite book.
Pulled into adventure as the pages unfurled,
I found treasures greater than gold or pearls. #Quote by Tyrean Martinson
Reading Books quotes by Novalis
#50. The true reader must be an extension of the author. He is the higher court that receives the case already prepared by the lower court. The feeling by means of which the author has separated out the materials of his work, during reading separates out again the unformed and the formed aspects of the book - and if the reader were to work through the book according to his own idea, a second reader would refine it still more, with the result that, since the mass that had been worked through would constantly be poured into fresh vessels, the mass would finally become an essential component - a part of the active spirit.

Through impartial rereading of his book the author can refine his book himself. With strangers the particular character is usually lost, because the talent of fully entering into another person's idea is so rare. Often even in the author himself. It is not a sign of superior education and greater powers to justifiably find fault with a book. When receiving new impressions, greater sharpness of mind is quite natural. #Quote by Novalis
Reading Books quotes by Andrew Kaufman
#51. Remember that the truth within yourself will always be greater than the truth found in these pages. These stories are here to guide us - to help us find that truth, not to tell us what it is. #Quote by Andrew Kaufman
Reading Books quotes by Nora Ephron
#52. There is something called the rapture of the deep, and it refers to what happens when a deep-sea diver spends too much time at the bottom of the ocean and can't tell which way is up. When he surfaces, he's liable to have a condition called the bends, where the body can't adapt to the oxygen levels in the atmosphere. All of this happens to me when I surface from a great book. #Quote by Nora Ephron
Reading Books quotes by Mortimer J. Adler
#53. The reader who fails to ponder, or at least mark, the words he does not understand is headed for disaster. #Quote by Mortimer J. Adler
Reading Books quotes by Angelica Hopes
#54. Reading books you like can soothe an invisible wound that irritatingly bleeds one's mood. #Quote by Angelica Hopes
Reading Books quotes by Reese Witherspoon
#55. Robert Pattinson loves to read and watch old movies and he's very smart. #Quote by Reese Witherspoon
Reading Books quotes by Virginia Woolf
#56. We agreed that people are now afraid of the English language. He [T.S. Eliot] said it came of being bookish, but not reading books enough. One should read all styles thoroughly. #Quote by Virginia Woolf
Reading Books quotes by George Orwell
#57. The cost of reading, even if you buy books instead of borrowing them and take in a fairly large number of periodicals, does not amount to more than the combined cost of smoking and drinking. #Quote by George Orwell
Reading Books quotes by Tarryn Fisher
#58. What a hypocrite I am; I spend my whole life reading books that allude to happiness, when I refuse to experience it. Sadness is an emotion you can trust. It is stronger than all of the other emotions. It makes happiness look fickle and untrustworthy. It pervades, lasts longer, and replaces the good feelings with such an eloquent ease you don't even feel the shift until you are suddenly wrapped in its chains. How hard we strive for happiness, and once we finally have the elusive feeling in our grasp, we hold it briefly, like water as it trickles through our fingers. I don't want to hold water. I want to hold something heavy and solid. Something I can understand. I understand sadness, and so I trust it. We are meant to feel sadness, if only to protect us from the brief spiels of happiness. Darkness is all I'll ever know; maybe the key is to make poetry out of it. #Quote by Tarryn Fisher
Reading Books quotes by Lisa Bloom
#59. Read. Read until your eyes are sore. Then read some more. #Quote by Lisa Bloom
Reading Books quotes by Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton
#60. There is no past, as long as books shall live. Books make the past our heritage and our home. #Quote by Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton
Reading Books quotes by Lewis Buzbee
#61. A bran' new book is a beautiful thing, all promise and fresh pages, the neatly squared spine, the brisk sense of a journey beginning. But a well-worn book also has its pleasures, the soft caress and give of the paper's edges, the comfort, like an old shawl, of an oft-read story. #Quote by Lewis Buzbee
Reading Books quotes by Gary Oldman
#62. It's always hard when you're playing someone for a lot of people out there who are going to see the movie after reading the books. There's a communion between a reader and the writer, so people will have an idea who Sirius Black is and I might not be everyone's idea of that. #Quote by Gary Oldman
Reading Books quotes by David Morrell
#63. Remember that just because major publishing is having trouble, that doesn't mean people have stopped reading books. Printed books won't go away, but ebooks won't go away, either. #Quote by David Morrell
Reading Books quotes by Carla H. Krueger
#64. Bravery isn't brandishing a sword. It's standing your moral ground and letting others try their best to take you down. #Quote by Carla H. Krueger
Reading Books quotes by Diane Setterfield
#65. You leave the previous book with idea's and themes - characters even - caught in the fibers of your clothing - and when you open a new book, they are still with you. #Quote by Diane Setterfield
Reading Books quotes by Tyler Hilton
#66. Kids think books are cool, especially when they see that people they think books are cool are reading. #Quote by Tyler Hilton
Reading Books quotes by Marie Kondo
#67. Books are essentially paper - sheets of paper printed with letters and bound together. Their true purpose is to be read, to convey the information to their readers. It's the information they contain that has meaning. There is no meaning in their just being on your shelves. You read books for the experience of reading. Books you have read have already been experienced and their content is inside you, even if you don't remember. #Quote by Marie Kondo
Reading Books quotes by Gregory A. Boyd
#68. I wondered if there was a way to teach people how to use their imaginations in prayer and worship. So I began reading books on cognitive therapy and neuroscience and started studying the devotional traditions of the church. #Quote by Gregory A. Boyd
Reading Books quotes by Helen Humphreys
#69. Maybe reading was just a way to make her feel less alone, to keep her company. When you read something you are stopped, the moment is stayed, you can sometimes be there more fully than you can in your real life. #Quote by Helen Humphreys
Reading Books quotes by Paul Mazursky
#70. I wish in my own mind I were more definite - that I was absolutely convinced I'd never direct someone else's script, but I keep reading scripts, because I might find something. #Quote by Paul Mazursky
Reading Books quotes by Amos Bronson Alcott
#71. Of books in our time the variety is so voluminous, and they follow so fast from the press, that one must be a swift reader to acquaint himself even with their titles, and wise to discern what are worth reading. #Quote by Amos Bronson Alcott
Reading Books quotes by Iain S. Thomas
#72. What's this?"
"It's a napkin used by the saddest girl in the world to dry her tears."
"Let me guess. Sylvia Plath?"
"No, no one famous. But we knew about her. She gave off so much resonance, it turned our entire map black for one city block."
"And she was no one special?"
"You wouldn't recognise her name if I told it to you."
"So just an everyday, normal person carrying their shopping, reading books at night and going for drinks occasionally with her friends, just some person, that's the saddest girl in the world?"
"Yes. Just a regular person. #Quote by Iain S. Thomas
Reading Books quotes by Mark Helprin
#73. I read. The more you read, the more the world opens up to you... and the happier you are and more comforted you feel. It's up to you. No you is educated who cannot educate himself. #Quote by Mark Helprin
Reading Books quotes by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
#74. Because reading books and having them bound represent two enormously different stages of development. First, people gradually get used to reading, over centuries naturally, but they don't take care of their books and toss them around. Having books bound signifies respect for the book; it indicates that people not only love to read, but they view it an important occupation. Nowhere in Russia has that stage been reached. Europe has been binding its books for sometime. #Quote by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Reading Books quotes by Alix E. Harrow
#75. I felt like a woman reading a mystery novel with every fourth line missing. There's really only one thing a person can do when they're hip-deep in a mystery novel: keep reading. #Quote by Alix E. Harrow
Reading Books quotes by John Hodgman
#76. This is one of the defining sorrows of books: that we cannot see one another. #Quote by John Hodgman
Reading Books quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#77. A man who does not read miss great wisdom. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
Reading Books quotes by Ruth Rendell
#78. Some say life is the thing, but I prefer reading. #Quote by Ruth Rendell
Reading Books quotes by Jacques Amyot
#79. Reading that pleases and profits, that together delights and instructs, has all that one should desire. #Quote by Jacques Amyot
Reading Books quotes by Haruki Murakami
#80. I go back to the reading room, where I sink down in the sofa and into the world of The Arabian Nights. Slowly, like a movie fadeout, the real world evaporates. I'm alone, inside the world of the story. My favourite feeling in the world. #Quote by Haruki Murakami
Reading Books quotes by Mark Haddon
#81. Mr. Jeavons, the psychologist at the school, once asked me why 4 red cars in a row made it a Good Day, and 3 red cars in a row made it a Quite Good Day, and 5 red cars in a row made it a Super Good Day, and why 4 yellow cars in a row made it a Black Day, which is a day when I don't speak to anyone and sit on my own reading books and don't eat my lunch and Take No Risks. He said that I was clearly a very logical person, so he was surprised that I should think like this because it wasn't very logical. I said that I liked things to be in a nice order. And one way of things being in a nice order was to be logical. Especially if those things were numbers or an argument. But there were other ways of putting things in a nice order. And #Quote by Mark Haddon
Reading Books quotes by Robin Hawdon
#82. I have started a new blog W.A.R.(Writers Amongst Readers) for all those writing or reading books. Quotes, excerpts, comments from the world's greatest writers. See robinhawdonblog #Quote by Robin Hawdon
Reading Books quotes by Susie Bright
#83. Finding people who get enormous pleasure from reading books is a more and more unusual experience, and so writers just so much want to be heard. #Quote by Susie Bright
Reading Books quotes by Deborah Harkness
#84. I teach 18- to 21-year-olds - the 'Harry Potter' generation. They grew up as voracious readers, reading books in this exploding genre. But at some point, I would love for them to give Umberto Eco or A.S. Byatt a try. I hope 'A Discovery of Witches' will serve as a kind of stepping-stone. #Quote by Deborah Harkness
Reading Books quotes by Jerome K. Jerome
#85. What readers ask nowadays in a book is that it should improve, instruct and elevate. This book wouldn't elevate a cow. I cannot conscientiously recommend it for any useful purposes whatever. All I can suggest is that when you get tired of reading "the best hundred books," you may take this for half an hour. It will be a change. #Quote by Jerome K. Jerome
Reading Books quotes by Amanda Penland
#86. The Lord has taught me so much through books. Maybe that's why I can't stop reading :) #Quote by Amanda Penland
Reading Books quotes by Joseph Delaney
#87. You can't just be reading books all the time and leave the writting of them to others. #Quote by Joseph Delaney
Reading Books quotes by Jack Lasenby
#88. Each time we come to a book we give it a different reading because we bring a different person to it. It is not you who reads the book, the book reads you #Quote by Jack Lasenby
Reading Books quotes by Jimmy Carr
#89. I'm obsessed with TV. How wrong our parents were when they said we should only watch an hour a day. Stop wasting your time reading books. #Quote by Jimmy Carr
Reading Books quotes by Alex Rodriguez
#90. Keep reading books, stay in school. I encourage kids to read as much as they can, I challenge you to read a book every two weeks, like I try to. #Quote by Alex Rodriguez
Reading Books quotes by Lois McMaster Bujold
#91. The book is not an object on the table; it is an event in the reader's mind. It's a process, through which an idea in my mind triggers an idea, more-or-less corresponding, in yours. The words on the page are merely the means to that end, a think-by-numbers set, a bottled daydream. The book, therefore, is only finished when someone reads it. - Sidelines #Quote by Lois McMaster Bujold
Reading Books quotes by Romain Rolland
#92. No one ever reads a book. He reads himself through books, either to discover or to control himself. #Quote by Romain Rolland
Reading Books quotes by Neena H. Brar
#93. After family, books are the things that make me happy. Books are my solace, my sanctuary from the everyday cares. If I could I would make reading my soul occupation. #Quote by Neena H. Brar
Reading Books quotes by Benjamin Alire Saenz
#94. What is it with you and that book?"
Rafael laughed. "We have a personal relationship. #Quote by Benjamin Alire Saenz
Reading Books quotes by Roger Lea MacBride
#95. And reading is a wonderful thing for the mind. I have not been many places in my life. But in books, I have traveled all over the world. #Quote by Roger Lea MacBride
Reading Books quotes by Kristian Goldmund Aumann
#96. I have learned through dreams more wisdom, than by reading hundreds of books. #Quote by Kristian Goldmund Aumann
Reading Books quotes by Lea Davey
#97. Never stop reading, Luke. The words from the pages make me feel like I'm right there, like I can smell the sea and hear the wind. It's my one regret that I didn't read much over the years. How can you learn about all the things happening in the world if you don't read? #Quote by Lea Davey
Reading Books quotes by Richelle E. Goodrich
#98. Every book is its own black hole. Don't fight the pull; find out where it takes you. #Quote by Richelle E. Goodrich
Reading Books quotes by Carl Sagan
#99. And reading itself is an amazing activity: You glance at a thin, flat object made from a tree ... and the voice of the author begins to speak inside your head. (Hello!) #Quote by Carl Sagan
Reading Books quotes by Gracie Allen
#100. I read a book twice as fast as anybody else. First, I read the beginning, and then I read the ending, and then I start in the middle and read toward whatever end I like best. #Quote by Gracie Allen
Reading Books quotes by Swami Vivekananda
#101. Realisation is real religion, all the rest is only preparation - hearing lectures, or reading books, or reasoning is merely preparing the ground; it is not religion. #Quote by Swami Vivekananda
Reading Books quotes by Voltaire
#102. I keep to old books, for they teach me something; from the new I learn very little #Quote by Voltaire
Reading Books quotes by Neil Gaiman

Reading Books quotes by Amy Plum

Reading Books quotes by Ernest Agyemang Yeboah
#107. The book you read and read well, over and over again, lives in you, becomes your thought and thinking pattern, teaches you all the time and keeps reminding about how to act and react towards things and occurrences' in life! #Quote by Ernest Agyemang Yeboah
Reading Books quotes by Romesh Gunesekera
#108. I've met writers who wanted to be writers from the age of six, but I certainly had no feelings like that. It was only in the Philippines when I was about 15 that I started reading books by very contemporary writers of the Beatnik generation. #Quote by Romesh Gunesekera
Reading Books quotes by H.L. Stephens
#109. Though I enjoy the occasional eBook from time to time, I will only stop reading books printed on paper when they pry them from my cold, dead, withered hands, and even then, they will be hard pressed to take them from me. #Quote by H.L. Stephens
Reading Books quotes by Timothy Ferriss
#110. No newspapers, magazines, audiobooks, or nonmusic radio. Music is permitted at all times. No news websites whatsoever (cnn.com, drudgereport.com, msn.com,10 etc.). No television at all, except for one hour of pleasure viewing each evening. No reading books, except for this book and one hour of fiction11 pleasure reading prior to bed. No web surfing at the desk unless it is necessary to complete a work task for that day. Necessary means necessary, not nice to have. #Quote by Timothy Ferriss
Reading Books quotes by John Boyne
#111. I like reading books about kids where there weren't really many adults, where they didn't need an adult to come and solve the problems for them. They could use their own ingenuity, use their own talents to solve whatever the issue was. And I like that still. I think that children want to read about heroic children. They don't want to read about children that have to be saved all the time. #Quote by John Boyne
Reading Books quotes by Annie Dillard
#112. Decade's reading had justified his guess that men and women perceive love identically save for, say, five percent. Reading books by men and women showed only-but it is something- that love struck, in exactly the same way, most, but not all, of those few men and women, since the invention of writing, who wrote something down. An unfair sample. #Quote by Annie Dillard
Reading Books quotes by Charles Bukowski
#113. Beware
Those Who

Reading Books quotes by Linda Sue Park
#114. 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
Reading Books quotes by William Nicholson
#115. We read to know that we are not alone. #Quote by William Nicholson
Reading Books quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#116. Books that are books are all that you want, and there are but a half dozen in any thousand. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Reading Books quotes by Lalla Ward
#117. I think the kind of unexpected I really love is when you open books and the actual way of writing is different and interesting. Like reading Virginia Woolf for the first time or Lawrence Durrell for the first time. #Quote by Lalla Ward
Reading Books quotes by Steven E. Landsburg
#118. Colleges should offer lots of optional life-enriching experiences, like intramural basketball and a place to sunbathe. But reading books, like basketball or sunbathing, is a leisure activity, neither more nor less admirable than any other, and colleges should not pretend otherwise. #Quote by Steven E. Landsburg
Reading Books quotes by J.R.R. Tolkien
#119. A good vocabulary is not acquired by reading books written according to some notion of the vocabulary of one's age group. It comes from reading books above one. #Quote by J.R.R. Tolkien
Reading Books quotes by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
#120. We are improved by reading books not by owning them. #Quote by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
Reading Books quotes by Judith Hill
#121. My creative process involves reading books and magazines, writing outside, and moving around a lot. I like to pace around when I'm writing songs. #Quote by Judith Hill
Reading Books quotes by V.C. Andrews
#122. Through books Cathy and I have lived a zillion lives ... our vicarious way
to feel alive. #Quote by V.C. Andrews
Reading Books quotes by John Ratzenberger
#123. It was the last generation of writers [ the Cheers] that had grown up reading books instead of watching TV. So you weren't getting anything that was derivative of I Love Lucy or Happy Days. You were getting real characters [like those] they read in P.G. Wodehouse or Dickens or somewhere along the line, because they had all grown up with a love of literature. #Quote by John Ratzenberger
Reading Books quotes by Anne Rice
#124. Stephen King in many respects is a wonderful writer. He has made a contribution. People in the future will be able to pick up Stephen King's books and learn a lot about who we were by reading those books. #Quote by Anne Rice
Reading Books quotes by Mike Tyson
#125. Every time there's a revolution, it comes from somebody reading a book about revolution. David Walker wrote a book and Nat Turner did his thing. #Quote by Mike Tyson
Reading Books quotes by Carla H. Krueger
#126. People who love reading get an instantly warm feeling in their bellies when they hear others describe getting comfortable with a good book. #Quote by Carla H. Krueger
Reading Books quotes by Monique Roffey
#127. He had a strange relationship with books. He had the notion that people who wrote novels were also lonely. He believed this more and more, reading between the lines of the novels he'd loved. Most books were about one kind of loneliness or another, about people who couldn't get what they wanted, people who found things hard, who were slow, or sad, or difficult. So he read most evenings, finding a comfort in following words written by someone like him. #Quote by Monique Roffey
Reading Books quotes by Michel Houellebecq
#128. An entire life spent reading would have fulfilled my every desire; I already knew that at the age of seven. The texture of the world is painful, inadequate; unalterable, or so it seems to me. Really, I believe that an entire life spent reading would have suited me best. Such a life has not been granted me ... #Quote by Michel Houellebecq
Reading Books quotes by William Styron
#129. Most books, like their authors, are born to die; of only a few books can it be said that death has no dominion over them; they live, and their influence lives forever. #Quote by William Styron
Reading Books quotes by Epictetus
#130. I cannot call somebody 'hard-working' knowing only that they read and write. Even if 'all night long' is added, I cannot say it – not until I know the focus of all this energy. #Quote by Epictetus
Reading Books quotes by L.J. DeVet
#131. The pages of a book are given life only as they are opened #Quote by L.J. DeVet
Reading Books quotes by Todd Gongwer
#132. I learned a long time ago that the two things that most impact our lives are the people we spend our time with and the things we read. Yep. Relationships and reading. #Quote by Todd Gongwer
Reading Books quotes by George Sorel
#133. For twenty years I strove to free myself from what I retained of my education; I indulged my curiosity by reading books less to learn than to efface from my memory the ideas that had been thrust upon it. #Quote by George Sorel
Reading Books quotes by Nicholaa Spencer
#134. Only a true reader will understand how lovely it is to read a book on rainy days. #Quote by Nicholaa Spencer
Reading Books quotes by Alberto Manguel
#135. For Borges, the core of reality lay in books; reading books, writing books, talking about books. In a visceral way, he was conscious of continuing a dialogue begun thousands of years before and which he believed would never end. #Quote by Alberto Manguel
Reading Books quotes by Mehmet Murat Ildan
#136. If you are not reading and thinking, it means that your windows looking to the ocean are closed! #Quote by Mehmet Murat Ildan
Reading Books quotes by Sergio Troncoso
#137. A narcissist with power will attempt to prove in the world only what is already in his head. He can't 'see' otherwise. For him, the 'outside world' is not beyond him and does not question or challenge him and his ideas. He is the world. Others will assent to his distorted worldview, because he is powerful, not because he is believable. If he possesses any reflection, that will be exactly what will gnaw at the narcissist with power most of all: his 'truths' are inauthentic, and he is a human being without integrity. The very narcissism and power he possesses prevent him from an ongoing relationship with the truth, which begins with self-humility and the curiosity this can create in a person. #Quote by Sergio Troncoso
Reading Books quotes by Saji Ijiyemi
#138. Don't buy books for your shelf, buy them for yourself. #Quote by Saji Ijiyemi
Reading Books quotes by Sophie Barnes
#139. Books are my passion," James told her, "I cannot imagine passing a day without reading. #Quote by Sophie Barnes
Reading Books quotes by George Orwell
#140. And if our book consumption remains as low as it has been, at least let us admit that it is because reading is a less exciting pastime than going to the dogs, the pictures or the pub, and not because books, whether bought or borrowed, are too expensive. #Quote by George Orwell
Reading Books quotes by Simon Rich
#141. By the time I got to college I had stopped reading books because I wanted to "be cool" and started reading books simply because I wanted to read them. I discovered heroes like Roth, King, Dahl, Shirley Jackson, Patricia Highsmith, TC Boyle, Douglas Adams, Neil Gaiman, David Sedaris. These people weren't trying to "rebel against the literary establishment." They were trying to write great, high-quality books that were as entertaining and moving as possible. #Quote by Simon Rich
Reading Books quotes by Mortimer J. Adler
#142. Don't try to resist the effect that a work of imaginative literature has on you. #Quote by Mortimer J. Adler
Reading Books quotes by D.H. Lawrence
#143. A book lives as long as it is unfathomed. #Quote by D.H. Lawrence
Reading Books quotes by Libba Bray
#144. And please, stay away from those books you devour. They are putting the most fantastical tales into your head. #Quote by Libba Bray
Reading Books quotes by Ray Bradbury
#145. I want to hold onto this funny thing. God, it's gotten big on me. I don't know what it is. I'm so damned unhappy, I'm so mad, and I don't know why. I feel like I'm putting on weight. I feel fat. I feel like I'm saving a lot of things, and I don't know what. I might even start reading books. #Quote by Ray Bradbury
Reading Books quotes by Becky Watson
#146. The Bible is a book that every Christian should read, listen to, or have read to him or her throughout his or her lifetime; however, in the event that God has gifted a person with the characteristic for the utter joy that envelopes some during times of, what they would describe as, "pleasure reading" (an often times rare characteristic), it is only acceptable that he or she (particularly) reads His Holy Word at least once during his or her lifetime. At least, that's what I think. #Quote by Becky Watson
Reading Books quotes by Zadie Smith
#147. Cambridge was a joy. Tediously. People reading books in a posh place. It was my fantasy. I loved it. I miss it still. #Quote by Zadie Smith
Reading Books quotes by Carla H. Krueger
#148. People who don't read fiction are scared of what's inside their own heads. #Quote by Carla H. Krueger

Reading Books quotes by A.N.L. Munby
#150. Book collecting is a full-time occupation, and one wouldn't get far if one took time off for frivolities like reading. #Quote by A.N.L. Munby
Reading Books quotes by Cornelia Funke
#151. Meggie thought this first whisper sounded a little different from one book to another, depending on weather or not she already knew the story it was going to tell her. #Quote by Cornelia Funke
Reading Books quotes by Tommy Lee
#152. I also did some jail time a few years ago. Spent a whole summer in jail reading books. I pumped a ton of new knowledge and new thinking into myself. #Quote by Tommy Lee
Reading Books quotes by Orhan Pamuk
#153. Eventually, we come to love certain novels because we have expended so much imaginative labor on them. This is why we hang on to those novels, whose pages are creased and dog-eared. #Quote by Orhan Pamuk
Reading Books quotes by G.K. Chesterton
#154. What are blue-stockings?' asked Tommy.
Naturally you don't know,' replied the other. 'If you did, you would sympathize more with Bluebeard. They were ladies who were always reading books. They even read them aloud. #Quote by G.K. Chesterton
Reading Books quotes by Marie Kondo
#155. You may have wanted to read it when you bought it, but if you haven't read it by now, the book's purpose was to teach you that you didn't need it. There's no need to finish reading books that you only got halfway through. Their purpose was to be read halfway. So get rid of all those unread books. It will be far better for you to read the book that really grabs you right now than one that you left to gather dust for years. #Quote by Marie Kondo
Reading Books quotes by Randy Susan Meyers
#156. Since I could only take six books per visit from the library, I had to time it right, or I'd be stuck on Sundays rereading the five Reader's Digest Condensed Books sitting on our red laquered living room shelf. #Quote by Randy Susan Meyers
Reading Books quotes by Mario Savio
#157. The university is a vast public utility which turns out future workers in today's vineyard, the military-industrial complex. They've got to be processed in the most efficient way to see to it that they have the fewest dissenting opinions, that they have just those characteristics which are wholly incompatible with being an intellectual. This is a real internal psychological contradiction. People have to suppress the very questions which reading books raises. #Quote by Mario Savio
Reading Books quotes by Lynne Sharon Schwartz
#158. Nor can I throw a book away. I have given many away and ripped a few in half, but as with warring nations, destruction shows regard: the enemy is a power to reckon with. Throwing a book out shows contempt for an effort of the spirit. Not that I haven't tried. #Quote by Lynne Sharon Schwartz
Reading Books quotes by Sergio Troncoso
#159. I exercised my mental muscles in the library, and lo and behold, I transformed myself from a casual reader into a focused one. So it was more than just free books, but also free space and a culture that reinforced settling down, deep reading, thinking, imagining, and exploring with my mind. I am no doubt a writer today because I had a place to go as a kid, where I knew stories were essential, and where everybody also reveled in the wonder within books. #Quote by Sergio Troncoso
Reading Books quotes by A.A. Patawaran
#160. And because the world is too big and time is too short and you only have one life to live, read! #Quote by A.A. Patawaran
Reading Books quotes by Paxton Hood
#161. Be as careful of the books you read, as of the company you keep; for your habits and character will be as much influenced by the former as the latter. #Quote by Paxton Hood
Reading Books quotes by Sahara Sanders
#162. When I was a schoolgirl my safe haven was a place at the uninhabited part of my parents' house. I used to climb up to the large windowsill that was facing a spreading plum-tree in the garden. Reading books, or penning my own stories, diaries and poems, it was especially fun to rest there during the warmer seasons of the year with an open window, when the tree was all covered with tender, odorous blossom in spring, and with rich purple fruitage in summer. #Quote by Sahara Sanders
Reading Books quotes by Catherine Jinks
#163. Only because books are better than people, Father. ... Because they are masters who instruct without a rod. If you approach them, they are never asleep; if you are ignorant, they never laugh; if you make mistakes, they never chide. They give to all who ask of them, and never demand payment. ... All the glory of the world would be buried in oblivion, if God hadn't provided us with the remedy of books. #Quote by Catherine Jinks
Reading Books quotes by Roald Dahl
#164. With frightening suddenness he now began ripping the pages out of the book in handfuls and throwing them in the waste-paper basket.
Matilda froze in horror. The father kept going. There seemed little doubt that the man felt some kind of jealousy. How dare she, he seemed to be saying with each rip of a page, how dare she enjoy reading books when he couldn't? How dare she? #Quote by Roald Dahl
Reading Books quotes by Mark Helprin
#165. Read what you find interesting, and then follow your interests. You'll find that in doing so you always generate enough to illuminate the next step. #Quote by Mark Helprin
Reading Books quotes by Michael Caine
#166. I spent my entire time reading books and going to the cinema, just to escape. #Quote by Michael Caine
Reading Books quotes by Jamaica Kincaid
#167. I was given a dictionary when I was seven, and I read it because I had nothing else to read. I read it the way you read a book. #Quote by Jamaica Kincaid
Reading Books quotes by John Mackey
#168. I learned how to cook, began reading books on food. I began to understand about nutrition. It never had occurred to me that what you ate could affect how you felt. It could affect your health. It seems obvious now, but at age 23 or 22 or whatever I was, it wasn't obvious at all. #Quote by John Mackey
Reading Books quotes by Cecelia Ahern
#169. Instead, I read books in the library, huddling on a bean bag in a corner and getting lost in somebody else's victories and troubles. I never had much time for fiction before. I preferred real life. Mathematics. Solutions. Things that actually have a bearing on my life. But I can understand now why people read, why they like to get lost in somebody else's life. Sometimes I'll read a sentence and it will make me sit up, jolt me, because it is something that I have recently felt but never said out loud. I want to reach into the page and tell the characters that I understand them, that they are not alone, that I'm not alone, that it's okay to feel like this. And then the lunch bell rings the book closes and I'm plunged back into reality. #Quote by Cecelia Ahern
Reading Books quotes by First Lady Laura Bush
#170. Reading will give you lasting pleasure. #Quote by First Lady Laura Bush
Reading Books quotes by Pat Conroy
#171. I don't know when reading books became the most essential thing about me, but it happened over the years and I found myself the most willing servant of what I considered a rich habit. #Quote by Pat Conroy
Reading Books quotes by Ron Brackin
#172. SUPPORT LITERACY! A child who cannot read cannot text. #Quote by Ron Brackin
Reading Books quotes by William Godwin
#173. He that loves reading has everything within his reach. #Quote by William Godwin
Reading Books quotes by Joshua Isard
#174. Organizing the books was a fun afternoon. We decided to put the thick hardback books, mostly intro. to philosophy textbooks and Norton literature anthologies, on the top shelves where they looked good but stayed out of reach since there's no reason for opening them ever again. Then we went by genre: mysteries, cozies, modernists, mountains, sci-fi, beloved childhood volumes, books we bought abroad, books required in school we couldn't sell back, books bought for us we'll read soon, books bought for us we have no intention of reading, books we want to read but are too long for a commitment with our current schedules...We're not really done with this organization, and I doubt we ever will be, but that's one great part about it. #Quote by Joshua Isard

Reading Books quotes by Naoki Higashida

Reading Books quotes by Helen Deutsch
#181. They say she was once a grand lady and lived on the hill. But she took to reading books and went from bad to worse. Stuffed her head full of ideas, and now she's a bit addled. #Quote by Helen Deutsch
Reading Books quotes by Slavenka Drakulic
#182. That evening, in her apartment, still in Warsaw, Ana takes down a book from her shelf – a rather thick, ordinary paperback. It looks old, because it's worn out and somehow shabby. But it's not ordinary. I can tell by the way she handles it so carefully, like something unique. 'This is the book I told you about,' she says, holding out the Anthology of Feminist Texts, a collection of early American feminist essays, 'the only feminist book translated into the Polish language,' the only such book to turn to when you are sick and tired of reading about man-eater/man-killer feminists from the West, I think, looking at it, imagining how many women have read this one copy. 'Sometimes I feel like I live on Jupiter, among Jupiterians, and then one day, quite by chance, I discover that I belong to another species. And I discover it in this book. Isn't that wonderful. #Quote by Slavenka Drakulic
Reading Books quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#183. A truly good book ... teaches me better than to read it. I must soon lay it down and commence living on its hint. When I read an indifferent book, it seems the best thing I can do, but the inspiring volume hardly leaves me leisure to finish its latter pages. It is slipping out of my fingers while I read ... What I began by reading I must finish by acting. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Reading Books quotes by Chris Geiger
#184. There is no such thing as a bad book, I just like some books more than others ... #Quote by Chris Geiger

Reading Books quotes by Shaun Hamill
#188. So." She drummed her fingers on the book. "You're a grown man who still reads ghost and monster stories."
"You already knew that about me, he said."
"I guess I didn't think about it until now," she said. "You don't feel sort of ridiculous? Like maybe you should be reading books for grown-ups?"
"I think horror is the most important fiction in the world," he said. #Quote by Shaun Hamill
Reading Books quotes by John W. Foster
#189. Few are sufficiently sensible of the importance of that economy in reading which selects, almost exclusively, the very first order of books. Why, except for some special reason, read an inferior book, at the very time you might be reading one of the highest order? #Quote by John W. Foster
Reading Books quotes by Bill Ackman

Reading Books quotes by A.K. Kuykendall
#193. I'm a person who is unpractical and idealistic. A rebellious dreamer plagued by night terrors. An affinity for the story of Superman, drinking, sex, jazz, writing, drugs, activism, golf, family, cooking, eating good food, reading books and savoring their hypnotic bouquet, for me, is like stumbling over a rock and recovering my equilibrium. This is the story of me. #Quote by A.K. Kuykendall
Reading Books quotes by Rebecca Mead
#194. Of course we all know people who aren't cut out for college, but I know it's a mistake to think of education only as a route to a better career. Reading books, studying history - all these things contribute to making us better citizens, too. #Quote by Rebecca Mead
Reading Books quotes by Haruki Murakami
#195. I think serious readers of books are 5% of the population. If there are good TV shows or a World Cup or anything, that 5% will keep on reading books very seriously, enthusiastically. And if a society banned books, they would go into the forest and remember all the books. So I trust in their existence. I have confidence. #Quote by Haruki Murakami
Reading Books quotes by Morris Gleitzman
#196. In 1969, we emigrated to Australia. It was a big change. The heat, the flies, and the completely different tinned meats. The shock was so great, I stopped reading books for nearly a year. #Quote by Morris Gleitzman
Reading Books quotes by Octavio Paz

Reading Books quotes by Edward Hoagland
#201. He couldn't work, as such, but needed to flex himself somehow in ways that felt like work, he thought. Lacking credentials and sight he could not teach, for example. Even reading a cold-call script would be out, although he'd heard of a resourceful blind man who went to the social security office and suggested, "Give me either a job or just my damned check," and received the former, skillfully handling mediation assignments. #Quote by Edward Hoagland

Reading Books quotes by Dennis Cooper
#204. Dan thought of love as defined by books, cobwebbed and hidden from view by the past. Too bad a love like that didn't actually exist. In the twentieth century one had to fake it. #Quote by Dennis Cooper
Reading Books quotes by Gina Marinello-Sweeney
#205. The luminescent flow of a sunbathed garden - illuminating the shifting colors of its inhabitants - echoed in my memory as I opened the antique bookstore door in the shaft of window light.
The books, like the flowers of the garden, awaited me with the thrill of a new mystery. #Quote by Gina Marinello-Sweeney
Reading Books quotes by Adriana Locke
#206. You know, I like to think my life is kind of like the books I read, only I'm the author. I can write the story I want. The future can be anything I want it to be." He moved his head side to side, considering my words. "That works, as long as your story has a blond stud that fucks like an animal. #Quote by Adriana Locke
Reading Books quotes by Marie Calloway
#207. I first emailed Tao Lin a story I wrote about the experience of losing my virginity sometime in April 2011. He didn't respond until it was later published on Thought Catalog, after which he sent me an email that said something very similar to, "I enjoyed reading this on Thought Catalog. Good job." #Quote by Marie Calloway
Reading Books quotes by Robert A. Heinlein
#208. Remind me," Jubal said to her, "to write a popular article on the compulsive reading of news.

Reading Books quotes by Jane Austen
#214. Pity is for this life, pity is the worm inside the meat, pity is the meat, pity is the shaking pencil, pity is the shaking voice
not enough money, not enough love
pity for all of us
it is our grace, walking down the ramp or on the moving sidewalk, sitting in a chair, reading the paper, pity, turning a leaf to the light, arranging a thorn. #Quote by Jane Austen
Reading Books quotes by Elyn R. Saks
#215. All my life, books had been the life raft, the safe haven, the place I ran to when nothing else worked. #Quote by Elyn R. Saks
Reading Books quotes by Wendell Berry
#216. The idea that people can be improved by being offended will finally have to meet the idea (espoused some of the time by some of the same people) that books, popular songs, movies, television shows, sex videos, and so on are "just fiction" or "just art" and therefore exist "for their own sake" and have no influence. To argue that works of art are "only" fictions or self-expressions and therefore cannot cause bad behavior is to argue also that they cannot cause good behavior. It is, moreover, to make an absolute division between art and life, experience and life, mind and body - a division that is intolerable to anyone who is at all serious about being a human or a member of a community or even a citizen. #Quote by Wendell Berry
Reading Books quotes by Cynthia Ozick
#217. All politicians know that every 'temporary' political initiative promised as a short-term poultice stays on the books forever. #Quote by Cynthia Ozick
Reading Books quotes by E. Norman Torry
#218. A library should fill our leisure with adventure. It is a refuge from the commonplace and the dull, a sanctuary where all the trials, the tribulations, and the boredoms of the outer world are forbidden and where such an evil thing as a tax-collector may be forgotten and, peradventure, forgiven. #Quote by E. Norman Torry
Reading Books quotes by Henry Miller
#219. If I were reading a book and happened to strike a wonderful passage I would close the book then and there and go for a walk. I hated the thought of coming to the end of a good book. I would tease it along, delay the inevitable as long as possible, But always, when I hit a great passage, I would stop reading immediately. Out I would go, rain, hail, snow or ice, and chew the cud. #Quote by Henry Miller
Reading Books quotes by Sedrie Danielle
#220. Sometimes you must slow down to see that the world isnt spinning, rather its your own mind which makes things turn #Quote by Sedrie Danielle
Reading Books quotes by Giacomo Casanova
#221. 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
Reading Books quotes by Meg Cabot
#222. Hey," Dopey said when I was finished reading. "How come they never mentioned me? I'm the one who found the skeleton."
"Oh, yeah," Sleepy said in disgust. "Your role was really crucial. After all, if it wasn't for you, the guy's
skull might still have been intact. #Quote by Meg Cabot

Rafe released the door, letting it close. "What are we talking about?"

I dug my nails into my palms, letting the pain brace me for his answer. "Is he your father?"

Rafe's smile returned. "Nope. I'm not your brother, Lane. I know that's got to be a disappointment." He paused, considering it. "Or maybe not. Now you can throw yourself at me. Just not when Mack's around okay? He's not my dad, but he is the guy who busted me out of an orphan camp when I was ten. #Quote by Kat Falls
Reading Books quotes by Mary McCarthy
#224. A society person who is enthusiastic about modern painting or Truman Capote is already half a traitor to his class. It is middle-class people who, quite mistakenly, imagine that a lively pursuit of the latest in reading and painting will advance their status in the world. #Quote by Mary McCarthy
Reading Books quotes by Julian Barnes
#225. In truth, he was just another man, behaving as men did in books, and she was just another woman for believing otherwise. #Quote by Julian Barnes
Reading Books quotes by E.L. Doctorow
#226. A writer of books has to admit that film is the enemy, and that in my case I have been sleeping with the enemy. #Quote by E.L. Doctorow
Reading Books quotes by Dan Chaon
#227. Beth had been a middle school science teacher and Joni was a librarian and they both had collections of weird stuff they had found. Bizarre, misspelled letters written by lovelorn eighth graders. Obscene Polaroids left in between the pages of library books. They used to call each other on the phone to share their latest discovery, and Critter had always remained a little off to the side, never feeling quite as sharp or ironic as they were. Critter was an electrician, primarily home repair, and so he didn't usually come across anything except bad wiring and faulty lighting fixtures. #Quote by Dan Chaon
Reading Books quotes by Malcolm Gladwell
#228. But let's not forget that if you are reading this book, then you are a reader and that means you've probably never had to think of all the shortcuts and strategies and bypasses that exist to get around reading #Quote by Malcolm Gladwell
Reading Books quotes by Jane Addams
#229. The popular books are the novels, dealing with life under all possible conditions, and they are widely read not only because they are entertaining, but also because they in a measure satisfy an unformulated belief that to see farther, to know all sorts of men, in an indefinite way, is a preparation for better social adjustment
for the remedying of social ills. #Quote by Jane Addams
Reading Books quotes by Shannon Hale
#230. Once she'd thought all the knowledge in the world was contained in the princess academy's thirteen books. Now she faced thousands. She wondered if she should curtsy as if she were entering a chapel. #Quote by Shannon Hale
Reading Books quotes by Grace McCleen
#231. ... there won't be any unbelievers or any war or any famine or any suffering. There won't be any pollution or any towns either. There will be fields, and those who have died will come back to life and those who are living will never die at all and there will be no more sickness, because God will wipe out every tear from our eyes. We know this because God has promised. #Quote by Grace McCleen
Reading Books quotes by Charles Bukowski
#232. I was sentimental about many things: a woman's shoes under the bed; one hairpin left behind on the dresser; the way they said, 'I'm going to pee.' hair ribbons; walking down the boulevard with them at 1:30 in the afternoon, just two people walking together; the long nights of drinking and smoking; talking; the arguments; thinking of suicide; eating together and feeling good; the jokes; the laughter out of nowhere; feeling miracles in the air; being in a parked car together; comparing past loves at 3am; being told you snore; hearing her snore; mothers, daughters, sons, cats, dogs; sometimes death and sometimes divorce; but always carring on, always seeing it through; reading a newspaper alone in a sandwich joint and feeling nausea because she's now married to a dentist with an I.Q. of 95; racetracks, parks, park picnics; even jails; her dull friends; your dull friends; your drinking, her dancing; your flirting, her flirting; her pills, your fucking on the side and her doing the same; sleeping together #Quote by Charles Bukowski
Reading Books quotes by Zack Snyder
#233. I love comic books - maybe to a fault sometimes. #Quote by Zack Snyder
Reading Books quotes by Ursula K. Le Guin
#234. Even in merely reading a fairytale, we must let go our daylight convictions and trust ourselves to be guided by dark figures, in silence; and when we come back, it may be very hard to describe where we have been. #Quote by Ursula K. Le Guin
Reading Books quotes by Will Rogers
#235. A man only learns in two ways, one by reading, and the other by association with smarter people. #Quote by Will Rogers
Reading Books quotes by Rabindranath Tagore
#236. Mother, the tutor has come, and I have such a bad headache; couldn't I have no lessons to-day?" I hope no child of immature age will be allowed to read this story, and I sincerely trust it will not be used in text-books or primers for junior classes. For what I did was dreadfully bad, and I received no punishment whatever. On the contrary, my wickedness was crowned with success. #Quote by Rabindranath Tagore
Reading Books quotes by Friedrich Max Muller
#237. The true history of the world must always be the history of the few; and as we measure the Himalaya by the height of Mount Everest, we must take the true measure of India from the poets of the Veda, the sages of the Upanishads, the founders of the Vedanta and Sankhya philosophies, and the authors of the oldest law-books, and not from the millions who are born and die in their villages, and who have never for one moment been roused out of their drowsy dream of life. #Quote by Friedrich Max Muller
Reading Books quotes by Kate Walker
#238. I'm always on the lookout for new and interesting places to set my books. But as the characters come first, who they are will usually dictate where a book is set. #Quote by Kate Walker
Reading Books quotes by Roz Chast
#239. I don't think any of my kids' books talk down to kids. #Quote by Roz Chast
Reading Books quotes by Larry Correia
#240. Wait a second, is a snooty book critic actually admitting to judging books by their covers? #Quote by Larry Correia
Reading Books quotes by D.L. Moody
#241. Good way is to study Bible characters - take them right from the cradle to the grave. You find that skeptics often take one particular part of a man's life - say, of the life of Jacob or of David - and judge the whole by that. They say these men were queer saints; and yet God did not punish them. If you go right through these men's lives you will find that God did punish them, according to the sins they committed. A lady once said to me that she had trouble in reading the Bible, that she seemed to not feel the interest she ought. If you don't keep up your interest in one way, try another. Never think you have to read the Bible by courses. PROPER NAMES. Another interesting study is the meaning of proper names. I need hardly remark that every name in the Bible, especially Hebrew names, #Quote by D.L. Moody
Reading Books quotes by Tom Holt
#242. So; in the beginning was the Word, but ten nanoseconds later there was a twelve-volume dictionary, and ten nanoseconds after that a Library of Congress, with 90 per cent of the books in foreign languages. It's probably not possible after such a lapse of time to find out what the original Word was. Given the consequences, however, it could well have been oops. #Quote by Tom Holt

#243. Her hands moved up his arms and tried to ignore the tingling zapping her skin like the metal edges of the Operation game. #Quote by Shannyn Leah, Lakeshore Candy
Reading Books quotes by David Almond
#244. A good bookshop is not just about selling books from shelves, but reaching out into the world and making a difference. #Quote by David Almond
Reading Books quotes by Hanya Yanagihara
#245. But stranger than that was the feeling he had, that everything had been worth it, that all his miseries were going to end, that he was going to a life that would be as good as, perhaps better than, anything he had read about in books. #Quote by Hanya Yanagihara
