Book Quotes of the Week

"Books and doors are the same thing. You open them, and you go through into another world." Jeanette Winterson

"There are great books in the world and great worlds in books." N.N.


“Good books, like good friends, are few and chosen; the more select, the more enjoyable.” Louisa May Alcott


"A book must be an ice-axe to break the seas frozen inside our soul." Franz Kafka


“What an astonishing thing a book is. It's a flat object made from a tree with flexible parts on which are imprinted lots of funny dark squiggles. But one glance at it and you're inside the mind of another person, maybe somebody dead for thousands of years. Across the millennia, an author is speaking clearly and silently inside your head, directly to you. Writing is perhaps the greatest of human inventions, binding together people who never knew each other, citizens of distant epochs. Books break the shackles of time. A book is proof that humans are capable of working magic.”  Carl Sagan
