Virginia Woolf
“When the Day of Judgment dawns and people, great and small, come marching in to receive their heavenly rewards, the Almighty will gaze upon the mere bookworms and say to Peter, “Look, these need no reward. We have nothing to give them. They have loved reading.”
Virginia Woolf

Yann Martel
“To choose doubt as a philosophy of life is akin to choosing immobility as a means of transportation.”
Yann Martel, Life of Pi

Arthur C. Clarke
“Behind every man now alive stand thirty ghosts, for that is the ratio by which the dead outnumber the living.”
Arthur C. Clarke, 2001: A Space Odyssey

Lemony Snicket
“Wicked people never have time for reading. It's one of the reasons for their wickedness.”
Lemony Snicket

Alexander McCall Smith
“It was time to take the pumpkin out of the pot and eat it. In the final analysis, that was what solved these big problems of life. You could think and think and get nowhere, but you still had to eat your pumpkin. That brought you down to earth. That gave you a reason for going on. Pumpkin.”
Alexander McCall Smith, The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency
