"It is only a novel… or, in short,
only some work in which the greatest powers of the mind are displayed,
in which the most thorough knowledge of human nature, the happiest
delineation of its varieties, the liveliest effusions of wit and humour,
are conveyed to the world in the best-chosen language." Jane Austen, Northanger Abbey
Says one of the greatest authors of all time.
"A good book was its own brand of magic." Kerri Maniscalo
Definitely true. I'm not into fantasy books but I agree that all books are magical.
"With freedom, books, flowers, and the moon, who could not be happy?" Oscar Wilde
All I need there is freedom and books.
