“There was so much to learn and it was all fun. But the best part was getting a laugh from an audience. That was like drowning in candy.”
Hal Holbrook, Harold: The Boy Who Became Mark Twain

Anne Fadiman
“Something amazing happens when the rest of the world is sleeping. I am glued to my chair. I forget that I ever wanted to do anything but write. The crowded city, the crowded apartment, and the crowded calendar suddenly seem spacious. Three or four hours pass in a moment; I have no idea what time it is, because I never check the clock. If I chose to listen, I could hear the swish of taxis bound for downtown bars or the soft saxophone riffs that drift from a neighbor's window, but nothing gets through. I am suspended in a sensory deprivation tank, and the very lack of sensation is delicious.”
Anne Fadiman, At Large and at Small: Familiar Essays

Lynne Sharon Schwartz
“Among some tossed-out books of my daughter's which I rescued...was one too awful to live. I returned it to the trash, resisting the urge to say a few parting words. All day long the thought of its mingling with chicken bones and olive pits nagged at me. Half a dozen times I removed it and replaced it, like an executioner with scruples about capital punishment. Finally I put it on a high shelf where I wouldn't have to see it. Life imprisonment.”
Lynne Sharon Schwartz, Ruined By Reading: A Life in Books

Nick Hornby
“Read anything, as long as you can't wait to pick it up again.”
Nick Hornby, Housekeeping vs. the Dirt

Stephen Fry
“I like to think of this little [newspaper] column as a brassière, or do I mean brasserie? Brazier, possibly. All three! A column that lifts, separates, supports, serves excellent cappuccino and crackles merrily with sweet-smelling old chestnuts.”
Stephen Fry, Paperweight
