Reading Truman quotes by D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones
#1. When you are reading your Scriptures in this way - it matters not whether you have read little or much - if a verse stands out and hits you and arrests you, do not go on reading. Stop immediately, and listen to it. It is speaking to you, so listen to it and speak to it. Stop reading at once, and work on this statement that has struck you in this way. #Quote by D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones
Reading Truman quotes by Keith Steinbaum
#2. We did a Tarot
card reading. She told me different things, most of them depressing and
worth forgetting. But what I'll always remember is her prediction of my
death, and how I'd become a kind of ghost, 'wandering' she said, with a
'spiritual restlessness'. #Quote by Keith Steinbaum
Reading Truman quotes by Eliezer Yudkowsky
#3. Not for the first time, the thought occurred to Hirou that if he'd actually known he was going to be transported into a magical universe, informed he was the long-lost heir to the Throne of Bronze, handed the legendary Sword of Good, and told to fight evil, he would have spent less time reading fantasy novels. Joined the army, maybe. Taken fencing lessons, at least. If there was one thing that didn't prepare you for fantasy real life, it was sitting at home reading fantasy fiction. #Quote by Eliezer Yudkowsky
Reading Truman quotes by Mark Jason Dominus
#4. I know exactly what I would do with immortality: I would read every book in the library. #Quote by Mark Jason Dominus
Reading Truman quotes by Jo Walton
#5. Reading is awesome and flexible and fits around chores and earning money and building the future and whatever else I'm doing that day. My attitude towards reading is entirely Epicurean - reading is pleasure and I pursue it purely because I like it. #Quote by Jo Walton
Reading Truman quotes by C.S. Lewis
#6. It is usual to speak in a playfully apologetic tone about one's adult enjoyment of what are called 'children's books'. I think the convention a silly one. No book is really worth reading at the age of ten which is not equally (and often far more) worth reading at the age of fifty – except, of course, books of information. The only imaginative works we ought to grow out of are those which it would have been better not to have read at all. #Quote by C.S. Lewis
Reading Truman quotes by John Irving
#7. The day women stop reading - that's the day the novel dies! #Quote by John Irving
Reading Truman quotes by Kristen Simmons
#8. His green eyes blazed with desire; such a different look than I'd known before. Chase had studied me, reading my feelings. Tucker was only trying to see his own reflection. Disturbing on several levels. #Quote by Kristen Simmons
Reading Truman quotes by Howard Zinn
#9. The willingness to undertake such action cannot be based on certainties, but on those possibilities glimpsed in a reading of history different from the customary painful recounting of human cruelties. In such a reading we can find not only war but resistance to war, not only injustice but rebellion against injustice, not only selfishness but self-sacrifice, not only silence in the fact of tyranny but defiance, not only callousness but compassion.
Human beings show a broad spectrum of qualities, but it is the worst of these that are usually emphasized, and the result, too often, is to dishearten us, diminish our spirit. And yet, historically, that spirit refuses to surrender. #Quote by Howard Zinn
Reading Truman quotes by Abraham Lincoln
#10. A capacity, and taste, for reading, gives access to whatever has already been discovered by others. It is the key, or one of the keys, to the already solved problems. And not only so. It gives a relish, and facility, for successfully pursuing the [yet] unsolved ones. #Quote by Abraham Lincoln
Reading Truman quotes by Ally Carter
#11. How sweet is that? I know I'm no boy expert, but I have heard entire lectures on reading body language, and I have to say that assuming that a person will have forgotten your name is way high on my "indicators of humbleness" list (not that I have one, but I totally have a starting point now). #Quote by Ally Carter
Reading Truman quotes by Adam Gopnik
#12. There is a book to be written, for instance, on small errors in subtitles. In the Fred Astaire musical Royal Wedding, for instance, the English girl he falls for, played by Sarah Churchill (daughter of Sir Winston), is engaged to an American, whom we never see but who's called Hal - like Falstaff's prince, like a good high Englishman. That English H, though, was completely inaudible to the French translator who did the subtitles, and so throughout the film the absent lover is referred to in the subtitles as Al - Al like a stagehand, Al like my grandfather. If you have the habit of print addiction, so that you are listening and reading at the same time, this guy Al keeps forcing his way into the movie. "But what shall I say to Hal - that I have never loved him?" Patricia says to Fred. Down below it says, "Et Al - qu'est-ce que je vais lui dire? #Quote by Adam Gopnik
Reading Truman quotes by Gregory Colbert
#13. Letter 74

I still have the first letter that you wrote to me. I carry it with me like a garden in my pocket.

If you come to me at this moment
your minutes will become hours
your hours will become days
and your days will become a lifetime.

I am never sure if I am reading the letter or the letter is reading me. #Quote by Gregory Colbert
Reading Truman quotes by Archibald MacLeish
#14. The one man who should never attempt an explanation of a poem is its author. If the poem can be improved by it's author's explanations it never should have been published, and if the poem cannot be improved by its author's explanations the explanations are scarcely worth reading. #Quote by Archibald MacLeish
Reading Truman quotes by Daniel Curtis Lee
#15. Reading is a huge part of life. #Quote by Daniel Curtis Lee
Reading Truman quotes by Michel Houellebecq
#16. It was amazing, even, to think that the only thing left to people in their despair was reading. #Quote by Michel Houellebecq
Reading Truman quotes by Emily St. John Mandel
#17. No more social media, no more scrolling through litanies of dreams and nervous hopes and photographs of lunches, cries for help and expressions of contentment and relationship-status updates with heart icons whole or broken, plans to meet up later, pleas, complaints, desires, pictures of babies dressed as bears or peppers for Halloween. No more reading and commenting on the lives of others, and in so doing, feeling slightly less alone in the room. No #Quote by Emily St. John Mandel
Reading Truman quotes by Matthew Reilly
#18. When I started writing, I was reading people such as Tom Clancy or Michael Crichton, who did 'Jurassic Park,' which is possibly the most action-filled book you'll read, apart from mine, and I said to myself, 'Why aren't these guys doing big-scale action like you would see in a movie?' #Quote by Matthew Reilly
Reading Truman quotes by Leo Rosten
#19. There was no answer, no solution, no sop, no deliverance. What, then, did I do? I read faster. #Quote by Leo Rosten
Reading Truman quotes by Robert Gottlieb
#20. Nothing is real for me until I've read about it. #Quote by Robert Gottlieb
Reading Truman quotes by James Jeffrey Roche
#21. Some men borrow books; some men steal books; and others beg presentation copies from the author. #Quote by James Jeffrey Roche
Reading Truman quotes by Akshay Vasu
#22. Being with her always felt like gazing the stars and into the infinity, reading a book which never ends. She had no boundaries, all she knew was to shine, and live without any walls around her on every page. #Quote by Akshay Vasu
Reading Truman quotes by Denise Duhamel
#23. I believe it's impossible to write good poetry without reading. Reading poetry goes straight to my psyche and makes me want to write. I meet the muse in the poems of others and invite her to my poems. I see over and over again, in different ways, what is possible, how the perimeters of poetry are expanding and making way for new forms. #Quote by Denise Duhamel
Reading Truman quotes by Anita Lasker-Wallfisch
#24. In school they told me I was a Jew, "a filthy Jew." At first I asked myself what exactly that was. But then I began to understand. I was a Jew, I was a member of the Jewish faith, the Jewish community. One time, when I was giving a reading at a school, someone asked me: "If it was so dangerous to be Jewish, why didn't you convert to Christianity?" My response was: "It's not as easy you think. When you're a Jew, you're a Jew. #Quote by Anita Lasker-Wallfisch
Reading Truman quotes by Mortimer J. Adler
#25. If you are reading a book that can increase your understanding, it stands to reason that not all of its words will be completely intelligible to you. If you proceed as if they were all ordinary words, all on the same level of general intelligibility as the words of a newspaper article, you will make no headway toward interpretation of the book. You might just as well be reading a newspaper, for the book cannot enlighten you if you do not try to understand it. #Quote by Mortimer J. Adler
Reading Truman quotes by Bamigboye Olurotimi
#26. This stay at home period can be the best moment of your life to discover your purpose on earth, set goals, enjoy new experiences through reading and learning, and focus intensely on what really matter most in life. #Quote by Bamigboye Olurotimi
Reading Truman quotes by Mary Shelley
#27. My education was neglected, yet I was passionately fond of reading. #Quote by Mary Shelley
Reading Truman quotes by Billy Graham

Reading Truman quotes by Lev Grossman
#29. I read a lot of literary theory when I was in graduate school, especially about novels, and the best book I ever read about endings was Peter Brooks' 'Reading for the Plot. ' #Quote by Lev Grossman
Reading Truman quotes by Abraham Lincoln
#30. Gentlemen, reading from speeches is a very tedious business, particularly for an old man that has to put on spectacles, and more so if the man be so tall that he has to bend over to the light. #Quote by Abraham Lincoln
Reading Truman quotes by William Stafford
#31. To do it artificially, to try to hype myself into being a better writer by doggedly reading better literature, is also a mistake. I learn to use the language by the pleasures it gives me when I am able to swim in it or maneuver in it or interchange in it with the people around me. #Quote by William Stafford
Reading Truman quotes by Johann Kaspar Lavater
#32. If you mean to know yourself, interline such of these aphorisms as affect you agreeably in reading, and set a mark to such as left a sense of uneasiness with you; and then show your copy to whom you please. #Quote by Johann Kaspar Lavater
Reading Truman quotes by Holbrook Jackson
#33. Past and present, it is all the same, books are necromancers, they exercise an influence more varied, more lasting, than any magic known to man. #Quote by Holbrook Jackson
Reading Truman quotes by Jonathan Dee

Reading Truman quotes by Rainbow Rowell
#35. M glad that you're out there somewhere reading this, eventually reading this, it makes me feel better. #Quote by Rainbow Rowell
Reading Truman quotes by Julian Lennon
#36. I can't stay mad very long. I get grumpy when I read a bad review. I say, 'How could he say that about my music?' Then I forget about it. If I got mad every time somebody wrote something negative about me, I'd be exploding all the time. I'd be burned out just from reading reviews. #Quote by Julian Lennon
Reading Truman quotes by Gina Sheridan
#37. Do you ever hide books you've read over and over again because you're so sick of them?'

'Oh, definitely. When they ask for them, I say the book fairy came to get it. One time they saw one of the books at the library, so now they think the librarians are book fairies. #Quote by Gina Sheridan
Reading Truman quotes by Paulo Coelho
