[Quote No.47711] Need Area: Fun > Books
"A story is not like a road to follow ... it's more like a house. You go inside and stay there for a while, wandering back and forth and settling where you like and discovering how the room and corridors relate to each other, how the world outside is altered by being viewed from these windows. And you, the visitor, the reader, are altered as well by being in this enclosed space, whether it is ample and easy or full of crooked turns, or sparsely or opulently furnished. You can go back again and again, and the house, the story, always contains more than you saw the last time. It also has a sturdy sense of itself of being built out of its own necessity, not just to shelter or beguile you." - Alice Munro
(1931 - ) 2013 Nobel Prize Literature laureate.

[Quote No.48857] Need Area: Fun > Books
"I began reading at a very, very early age, and I've been a reading junkie ever since – I read all the time. I probably spend more time reading than any other thing I've done in my life, including sleeping. I've spent many, many days of my life reading eight and ten hours a day, and there's no day that I don't read for hours, and don't ask me how I can do all the other things – I don't know. The day has pockets – you can always find time to read." - Susan Sontag

"Books are delightful society if you go into a room and find it full of books - even without taking them from their shelves they seem to speak to you, to bid you welcome. They seem to tell you that they have got something inside their covers that will be good for you, and that they are willing and desirous to impart to you." - William Ewart Gladstone

[Quote No.49416] Need Area: Fun > Books
"I have friends whose society is extremely agreeable to me; they are of all ages and of every country. They have distinguished themselves both in the cabinet and in the field, and obtained high honors for their knowledge of the sciences. It is easy to gain access to them, for they are always at my service, and I admit them to my company and dismiss them from it whenever I please. They are never troublesome, but immediately answer every question I ask them. Some teach me how to live, and others how to die. Some by their vivacity drive away my cares and exhilarate my spirits, while others give fortitude to my mind and teach me the important lesson, - how to restrain my desires and depend wholly on myself. They open to me, in short, the various avenues of all the arts and sciences, and upon their information I may safely rely in all emergencies. In return for all their services they only ask me to accommodate them with a convenient chamber in some corner of my humble habitation where they may repose in peace; for these friends are more delighted by the tranquillity of retirement than with the tumults of society." - Petrarch

[Quote No.49468] Need Area: Fun > Books
"In serious fiction, fiction where the writer feels he's accomplishing something besides simply amusing people – although there's nothing wrong with simply amusing people – the writer is holding up a mirror to the human species, making it possible for you to understand people better because you've read the novel or story, and maybe making it possible for you to understand yourself better. That's an important thing. Now science fiction uses a different method. It works up an artificial society, one which doesn't exist, or one that may possibly exist in the future, but not necessarily. And it portrays events against the background of this society in the hope that you will be able to see yourself in relation to the present society... That's why I write science fiction – because it's a way of writing fiction in a style that enables me to make points I can't make otherwise. " - Isaac Asimov

"Reading is the work of the alert mind, is demanding, and under ideal conditions produces finally a sort of ecstasy. As in the sexual experience, there are never more than two persons present in the act of reading - the writer, who is the impregnator, and the reader, who is the respondent. This gives the experience of reading a sublimity and power unequalled by any other form of communication. " - E. B. White

Reading is escape, and the opposite of escape; it's a way to make contact with reality after a day of making things up, and it's a way of making contact with someone else's imagination after a day that's all too real. Reading is grist. Reading is bliss." - Nora Ephron
