Book Quotes of the Week

"You are taller with every book you read." Silly Jellie, DeviantArt
I doubt that, I'm the one whos read most in my family and I'm not the tallest. ­čśë

"Happiness is holding someone in your arms and knowing you hold the whole world." Orhan Pamuk, Snow
As always, one of my favourite authors is totally right.

"I wanted to explain that I am constantly overestimating and underestimating the human race - that rarely do I even simply estimate it. I wanted to ask her how the same thing could be so ugly and so glorious, and its words and stories so damning and brilliant ... I AM HAUNTED BY HUMANS." Markus Zusak, The Book Thief
I'm afraid I do that all the time, it's hard not to judge when someone does something extremely dumb or extremely clever.

"A little reading is all the therapy a person needs sometimes." N.N.
A good book always helps.

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