“Writing is an extreme privilege but it’s also a gift. It’s a gift to yourself and it’s a gift of giving a story to someone.”
“There are many little ways to enlarge your child’s world. Love of books is the best of all.”
~Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis
“When I get a little money I buy books; and if any is left I buy food and clothes.”
“Writing is a lonely job. Having someone who believes in you makes a lot if difference. They don’t have to makes speeches. Just believing is usually enough.”
The best book, like the best speech, will do it all – make us laugh, think, cry and cheer – preferably in that order.
The books that help you most are those which make you think that most. The hardest way of learning is that of easy reading; but a great book that comes from a great thinker is a ship of thought, deep freighted with truth and beauty.
You don’t have to burn books to destroy a culture. Just get people to stop reading them. ~ Ray Bradbury
Books are a uniquely portable magic. ~ Stephen King
