“When I read a book, I put in all the imagination I can, so that it is almost like writing the book as well as reading it - or rather, it is like living it. It makes reading so much more exciting, but I don't suppose many people try to do it.”
Dodie Smith, I Capture the Castle

J.K. Rowling
“Books are like mirrors: if a fool looks in, you cannot expect a genius to look out.”
J.K. Rowling

William J.H. Boetcker
“You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.
You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.
You cannot help little men by tearing down big men.
You cannot lift the wage earner by pulling down the wage payer.
You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich.
You cannot establish sound security on borrowed money.
You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.
You cannot keep out of trouble by spending more than you earn.
You cannot build character and courage by destroying men's initiative and independence.
And you cannot help men permanently by doing for them what they can and should do for themselves.”
William J.H. Boetcker

Geraldine Brooks
“Book burnings. Always the forerunners. Heralds of the stake, the ovens, the mass graves.”
Geraldine Brooks, People of the Book

“Secrets could never be rushed. They had to come of their own accord, on their own schedule. That way ,when they came , the offered themselves as a gift.”
