Anne Fadiman
“My daughter is seven, and some of the other second-grade parents complain that their children don't read for pleasure. When I visit their homes, the children's rooms are crammed with expensive books, but the parent's rooms are empty. Those children do not see their parents reading, as I did every day of my childhood. By contrast, when I walk into an apartment with books on the shelves, books on the bedside tables, books on the floor, and books on the toilet tank, then I know what I would see if I opened the door that says 'PRIVATE--GROWNUPS KEEP OUT': a child sprawled on the bed, reading.”
Anne Fadiman, Ex Libris: Confessions of a Common Reader

T.H. White
“The best thing for being sad," replied Merlin, beginning to puff and blow, "is to learn something. That's the only thing that never fails. You may grow old and trembling in your anatomies, you may lie awake at night listening to the disorder of your veins, you may miss your only love, you may see the world about you devastated by evil lunatics, or know your honour trampled in the sewers of baser minds. There is only one thing for it then — to learn. Learn why the world wags and what wags it. That is the only thing which the mind can never exhaust, never alienate, never be tortured by, never fear or distrust, and never dream of regretting. Learning is the only thing for you. Look what a lot of things there are to learn.”
T.H. White, The Once and Future King

“The grand essentials to happiness in this life are something to do, something to love, and something to hope for.”
George Washington Burnap, The Sphere and Duties of Woman: A Course of Lectures

Leonardo da Vinci
“Study without desire spoils the memory, and it retains nothing that it takes in.”
Leonardo da Vinci

Mahatma Gandhi
“Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.”
Mahatma Gandhi
