Book Quotes of the Week

"In a library we are surrounded by many hundreds of dear friends imprisoned by an enchanter in paper and leather boxes." Ralph Waldo Emerson

"Isn't it odd how much fatter a book gets when you've read it several times?" Mo had said..."As if something were left between the pages every time you read it. Feelings, thoughts, sounds, smells...and then, when you look at the book again many years later, you find yourself there, too, a slightly younger self, slightly different, as if the book had preserved you like a pressed flower...both strange and familiar." Cornelia Funke

"Make it a rule never to give a child a book you would not read yourself." George Bernard Shaw

"If you love to read, you can learn anything you really want to know." Zig Ziglar

"I will never cease to be amazed by books. Seriously. Just think about it: thousands of people read the same book but in each one’s mind the characters look different and the setting changes and we’re all reading the same thing but it’s so unique to each of us. That is insanely cool." N.N.

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