Book Quotes of the Week

"Books fall open, you fall in. When you climb out again, you're a bit larger than you used to be." Gregory Maguire, the author of Wicked. 

“A mind needs books as a sword needs a whetstone, if it is to keep its edge.” Tyrion Lannister (Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin) 

"A writer’s job is to imagine everything so personally that the fiction is as vivid as our personal memories.” John Irving 

“You must write every single day of your life... You must lurk in libraries and climb the stacks like ladders to sniff books like perfumes and wear books like hats upon your crazy heads... may you be in love every day for the next 20,000 days. And out of that love, remake a world.” Ray Bradbury 

“Fairy tales are more than true: not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.” Neil Gaiman

  1. Great quotes this week, I'm a big fan of George R.R. Martin and Neil Gaimen

  2. I have never read any of their books. I think they are both mostly fantasy and that is not my favourite genre. I do like their quotes, though, they are probably some good writers.
