Book Quotes of the Week



"One must be careful of books, and what is inside them, for words have the power to change us." Cassandra Clare, The Infernal Devices

"On rare occasions there comes along a profound original, an odd little book that appears out of nowhere, from the pen of some obscure storyteller, and once you have read it, you will never go completely back to where you were before. The kind of book you may hesitate to lend for fear you might miss its company. The kind of book that echoes from the heart of some ancient knowing, and whispers from time's forgotten cave that life may be more than it seems, and less." A.B. Curtiss

"That's the thing about books. They let you travel without moving your fee." Jhumpa Lahiri

"And now that you don’t have to be perfect, you can be good." John Steinbeck, East of Eden

"Books are the gateway to the world and the escape from it." N.N.

[If anyone can tell me the originator of this quote, I'd be very thankful and would happily include the name.]
