John  Williams
“Sometimes, immersed in his books, there would come to him the awareness of all that he did not know, of all that he had not read; and the serenity for which he labored was shattered as he realized the little time he had in life to read so much, to learn what he had to know.”
John Williams, Stoner

Carlos Ruiz Zafón
“Books are mirrors: you only see in them what you already have inside you.”
Carlos Ruiz Zafón, The Shadow of the Wind

James Frey
“Sometimes skulls are thick. Sometimes hearts are vacant. Sometimes words don't work. ”
James Frey, A Million Little Pieces

Mary Ann Shaffer
“Reading good books ruins you for enjoying bad books.”
Mary Ann Shaffer, The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society

Michael Ondaatje
“She had always wanted words, she loved them; grew up on them. Words gave her clarity, brought reason, shape.”
Michael Ondaatje, The English Patient
