If, for example, you want to write romance do not only read romances because if you do your mind will become sodden with romance and therefore so will your writing. Read a wide variety, read non-fiction, read fiction, read poetry, read it all, and out of all this you will have a bank of memory waiting to flourish upon your pages. Read and so write the impossible because it will become possible through all which you have devoured. And don't forget, relax and enjoy!(less)

On reading this book I begin understand something. As I turn each page I see how the previous reader had taken it. Whereas I read and get caught in the feelings of the thing the previous tenant brought their pet with them to meander and to pause for their pet to mark its territory. On … More On reading

Arthur Conan Doyle
“I care not how humble your bookshelf may be, or how lonely the room which it adorns. Close the door of that room behind you, shut off with it all the cares of the outer world, plunge back into the soothing company of the great dead, and then you are through the magic portal into that fair land whither worry and vexation can follow you no more. You have left all that is vulgar and all that is sordid behind you. There stand your noble, silent comrades, waiting in their ranks. Pass your eye down their files. Choose your man. And then you have but to hold up your hand to him and away you go together into dreamland”
Arthur Conan Doyle, Through The Magic Door

Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious
“Tell me, what is it you plan to do
with your one wild and precious life?”
Mary Oliver

Arthur Conan Doyle
“When we know everything about this earth, the romance and poetry will all have been wiped away from it. There is nothing so artistic as a haze.”
Arthur Conan Doyle, Dangerous Work: Diary of an Arctic Adventure

“Reading makes immigrants of us all. It takes us away from home, but more important, it finds homes for us everywhere.”
