Thomas Jefferson
“I cannot live without books.”
Thomas Jefferson

Diane Setterfield
“But silence is not a natural environment for stories. They need words. Without them they grown pale, sicken and die. And then they haunt you.”
Diane Setterfield, The Thirteenth Tale

Graham Moore
“[On writing more Sherlock Holmes stories.] ‘I don’t care whether you do or not,’ said Bram. ‘But you will, eventually. He’s yours, till death do you part. Did you really think he was dead and gone when you wrote “The Final Problem”? I don’t think you did. I think you always knew he’d be back. But whenever you take up your pen and continue, heed my advice. Don’t bring him here. Don’t bring Sherlock Holmes into the electric light. Leave him in the mysterious and romantic flicker of the gas lamp. He won’t stand next to this, do you see? The glare would melt him away. He was more the man of our time than Oscar was. Or than we were. Leave him where he belongs, in the last days of our bygone century. Because in a hundred years, no one will care about me. Or you. Or Oscar. We stopped caring about Oscar years ago, and we were his bloody *friends.* No, what they’ll remember are the stories. They’ll remember Holmes. And Watson. And Dorian Gray.”
Graham Moore, The Sherlockian

Francis Bacon
“Some books should be tasted, some devoured, but only a few should be chewed and digested thoroughly.”
Sir Francis Bacon

Gerard Manley Hopkins
“What I do is me, for that I came.”
Gerard Manley Hopkins
