Book Quotes of the Week

"A novel must be exceptionally good to live as long as the average cat." Hugh Maclennan
Sometimes we just need a humourous quote like this one.

"I don't want to be a tree; I want to be its meaning." Orhan Pamuk, "My Name Is Red"
One of the quotes in my favourite book by one of my favourite authors. He always has a great way of expressing my thoughts.

"It takes a library to raise a child." N.N.
I couldn't agree more with this even if I would. I've seen many people who had almost no books in the house, didn't go to the library with the kids and then complained that their children wouldn't read.

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

    1. You're welcome. I love those quotes, so I am happy to share them with others who also do. I had to laugh out loud, when I heard the first one.

      Thanks for visiting.

  3. Great quotes! The first one is funny, but I also love the last one!

    1. Same here. And I totally agree. It's so great to have libraries everywhere to get your children to love reading. Why there are people out there who don't use them, is beyond me.

      Thanks for your visit.
