“The reading of a fine book is an uninterrupted dialogue in which the book speaks and our soul replies.”
Andre Maurois

“In literature as in love, we are astonished at what is chosen by others.”
André Maurois

“Often we allow ourselves to be upset by small things we should despise and forget. We lose many irreplaceable hours brooding over grievances that, in a year's time, will be forgotten by us and by everybody.

Andre Maurois
