Groucho Marx
“Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend. Inside of a dog it's too dark to read.”
Groucho Marx, The Essential Groucho: Writings For By And About Groucho Marx

Joanna Russ
“As my mother once said: The boys throw stones at the frogs in jest.

But the frogs die in earnest.”
Joanna Russ, The Female Man

James Baldwin
“You think your pain and your heartbreak are unprecedented in the history of the world, but then you read. It was books that taught me that the things that tormented me most were the very things that connected me with all the people who were alive, who had ever been alive.”
James Baldwin

Georges Perec
“Question your tea spoons.”
Georges Perec, Species of Spaces and Other Pieces

Edward Gorey
“I really think I write about everyday life. I don't think I'm quite as odd as others say I am. Life is intrinsically, well, boring and dangerous at the same time. At any given moment the floor may open up. Of course, it almost never does; that's what makes it so boring.”
Edward Gorey
