Books

«Os livros mudam o destino das pessoas»

Carlos María Domínguez


«I love the book. I love the feel of a book in my hands, the compactness of it, the shape, the size. I love the feel of paper. The sound it makes when I turn a page. I love the beauty of print on paper, the patterns, the shapes, the fonts. I am astonished by the versatility and practicality of The Book. It is so simple. It is so fit for its purpose. It may give me mere content, but no e-reader will ever give me that sort of added pleasure.»

Susan Hill


«Some of these things are true and some of them lies. But they are all good stories.»

Hilary Mantel


«I suppose if I had to give a one-word answer to the question of why I read, that word would be pleasure. The kind of pleasure you can get from reading is like no other in the world.»

Wendy Lesser


«Last night I thought about all the kerosene I've used in the past ten years. And I thought about books. And for the first time I realized that a man was behind each one of the books. A man had to think them up. A man had to take a long time to put them down on paper. And I'd never even thought that thought before...It took some man a lifetime maybe to put some of his thoughts down, looking around at the world and life, and then I come along in two minutes and boom! it's all over.»

Ray Bradbury


«Writing is about taking everyday observations, things which people see almost every day of their lives, and yet bringing it to their attention for the very first time.»

Jamie L. Harding


«I have an idea that the only thing which makes it possible to regard this world we live in without disgust is the beauty which now and then men create out of the chaos. The pictures they paint, the music they compose, the books they write, and the lives they lead. Of all these the richest in beauty is the beautiful life. That is the perfect work of art.»

W. Somerset Maugham

«Books to the people!»

«I had an unconventional birth. I popped out of a vending machine, precisely like books don’t. But you shouldn’t read too much into it.»

Jarod Kintz


«Most people have a list of 100 books to read before they die, or 100 places to visit. Not me. I have a list of 100 birthdays to see. No need to write them down, they're simply 50 through 150. Another list of mine is 100 people to meet before I die who look exactly like me, thanks to the miracle of cloning.»

Jarod Kintz


«The heel of Montgomery’s boot tapped nervously against the floor, as if he knew he was a bad liar. “I can’t say how he’ll take the news at first. He can be unpredictable, but in the end he’ll be glad you came.” He leaned forward, blue eyes simmering. His boot tapped faster. “I’m glad you came.»

«Art books are filled with interesting images. And that’s cool and all, but I look more for the nudes.»

Jarod Kintz


«The book thief has struck for the first time – the beginning of an illustrious career.»

Markus Zusak


«Reading is to the mind what exercise is to the body.»

Richard Steele


«...'you have to ask yourself though, who are we to stop a war?’»

H.J. Stephens


«Outside Styx's apartment was not the first time Rochester and I had met, or would it be the last. We first encountered each other at Haworth House in Yorkshire when my mind was young and the barrier between reality and make-believe had not yet hardened into the shell that cocoons us in adult life. The barrier was soft, pliable and, for a moment, thanks to the kindness of a stranger and the power of a good storytelling voice, I made the short journey--and returned.»

Jasper Fforde


«We measure everything by ourselves with almost a necessary conceit.»

Dejan Stojanovic

«The book can produce an addiction as fierce as heroin or nicotine, forcing us to spend much of our lives, like junkies, in book shops and libraries, those literary counterparts to the opium den.»

Phillip Adams


«I won't be sad too often,»

J. Patrick Lewis


«Books" - Snell smiled - "are a kind of magic.»

«Every heart must have»

Sanober Khan


«It was the yearning she related to. Shriver seemed to understand the specific human pain of wanting and pushing away at the same time. It left her with a gorgeous ache, and when she turned the last page of the book and closed the cover, Norah's connection to the writer felt absolute. It was a breathless, consuming rapture....»

Ellen Meister


«Books are road map to your destination called success. Refer to good ones.»

Vikrmn


«The library would've cheered me up, most days. I loved the heavy oaken tables, the high walls stacked with books to the ceiling, the musty smell of old pages and the heavy brass fixtures that had gone dark with age and wear.»

Claudia Gray


«I am most interested in encouraging Christians to think and read well. Christians, of all people, should reflect the mind of their Maker. Learning to read well is a step toward loving God with your mind. It is a leap toward thinking God’s thoughts after Him.»

James W. Sire


«There's only about about 6 to 8 inches between an open book and a human being's heart. A lot can happen in those 7 inches. Perspectives, fresh perspectives occur and minds expand, and I love fiction and I feel like it's a possibility for transformation.»

Aline Ohanesian
