Ezra Pound
“Man reading ought to be a man intensely alive. The book ought to be a ball of light in his hands. ”
Ezra Pound

Carl Sagan
“A book is made from a tree. It is an assemblage of flat, flexible parts (still called "leaves") imprinted with dark pigmented squiggles. One glance at it and you hear the voice of another person, perhaps someone dead for thousands of years. Across the millennia, the author is speaking, clearly and silently, inside your head, directly to you. Writing is perhaps the greatest of human inventions, binding together people, citizens of distant epochs, who never knew one another. Books break the shackles of time ― proof that humans can work magic.”
Carl Sagan

Robert A. Heinlein
“Live and learn, or you don't live long.”
Robert A. Heinlein, Time Enough for Love

Friedrich Nietzsche
“That which does not kill us makes us stronger.”
Friedrich Nietzsche

Robert Walser
“I don't want a future, I want a present. To me this appears of greater value. You have a future only when you have no present, and when you have a present, you forget to even think about the future.”
Robert Walser, The Tanners
