"By nature, a storyteller is a plagiarist. Everything one comes across - each incident, book, novel, life episode, story, person, news clip - is a coffee bean that will be crushed, ground up, mixed with a touch of cardamom, sometimes a tiny pinch of salt, boiled thrice with sugar, and served as a piping-hot tale." Rabih Alameddine
"A writer is a writer not because she writes well and easily, because she has amazing talent, because everything she does is golden. A writer is a writer because even when there is no hope, even when nothing you do shows any sign of promise, you keep writing anyway." Junot Díaz
"I have read Fahrenheit 451 enough times to know that libraries are one institution that should never be eliminated from a society.... Even when certain civil liberties are taken away, the liberty to read should never be tampered with." Marilyse Figueroa
"Books are uniquely portable magic." Stephen King
"They say you are what you read. Therefore, I am an archer, a debutante, a vampipre, a detective, a spy, an empath, a dragon, a sniper, a werewolf, a profiler, a pyromaner, a dancer ..... In other words, readers kind of rock." N.N.
