I found it unoriginal and repetitive, aka disappointing. Probably because I've read about Eastern philosophies on war, so when I came to read The Prince, it seemed insipid to me, compared to the richness of Eastern texts.

Ray Bradbury
“You must write every single day of your life... You must lurk in libraries and climb the stacks like ladders to sniff books like perfumes and wear books like hats upon your crazy heads... may you be in love every day for the next 20,000 days. And out of that love, remake a world.”
Ray Bradbury

Dylan Thomas
“My education was the liberty I had to read indiscriminately and all the time, with my eyes hanging out.”
Dylan Thomas

Chuck Palahniuk
“If you love something set it free, but don't be surprised if it comes back with herpes.”
Chuck Palahniuk

Jonathan Safran Foer
“I like to see people reunited, I like to see people run to each other, I like the kissing and the crying, I like the impatience, the stories that the mouth can't tell fast enough, the ears that aren't big enough, the eyes that can't take in all of the change, I like the hugging, the bringing together, the end of missing someone.”
Jonathan Safran Foer, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close

Anne Fadiman
“If you truly love a book, you should sleep with it, write in it, read aloud from it, and fill its pages with muffin crumbs.”
Anne Fadiman
