Book Quotes of the Week

"Reading is the key that opens doors to many good things in life. Reading shaped my dreams, and more reading helped me make my dreams come true." Ruth Bader Ginsburg

Great words by a great lady.

"It’s what you’re reading that matters, and how you’re reading it, not the speed with which you’re getting through it. Reading is supposed to be about the encounter with other minds, not an opportunity to return to the endlessly appealing subject of Me." Alan Jacobs

I'm a fast reader but I totally agree with this.

"If you write, write about what you do and who you are and you can't be wrong. Don't lie about anything. You are very similar to everybody else in the world. You love, you hate, you have friends, you have enemies. Be who you are." Carl Reiner

Good advice. Carl Reiner is the father of one of my favourite directors and I'm sure he passed on his wisdom to his son.

  2. I love these, especially the Jacobs one.

    1. I love it that those different quotes speak to different people but you are right, the Jacobs one is great. It's always important what you take away from a book.

      Thanks for your visit.
