Quotes by Jonathan Raban  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“‎Books admitted me to their world open-handedly, as people for their most part, did not. The life I lived in books was one of ease and freedom, worldly wisdom, glitter, dash and style.”
Jonathan Raban

“We need – more urgently than architectural utopias, ingenious traffic disposal systems, or ecological programmes – to comprehend the nature of citizenship, to make serious imaginative assessment of that special relationship between the self and the city; its unique plasticity, its privacy and freedom.”
Jonathan Raban, Soft City: A Documentary Exploration of Metropolitan Life

“We have so separated ourselves, person from person and group from group, in the city, that we have made hatred a dreadfully easy emotion. It comes to us as lightly and insidiously as the symptoms of an unconsciously harboured disease.”
Jonathan Raban, Soft City: Picador Classic
