Julian Barnes
“Books say: She did this because. Life says: She did this. Books are where things are explained to you; life is where things aren't. I'm not surprised some people prefer books.”
Julian Barnes, Flaubert's Parrot

Jo Walton
“Libraries really are wonderful. They're better than bookshops, even. I mean bookshops make a profit on selling you books, but libraries just sit there lending you books quietly out of the goodness of their hearts.”
Jo Walton, Among Others

Terry Pratchett
“No one is actually dead until the ripples they cause in the world die away...”
Terry Pratchett, Reaper Man

Juliet Marillier
“Don't you long for something different to happen, something so exciting and new it carries you along with it like a great tide, something that lets your life blaze and burn so the whole world can see it? Something that touches you with joy or with terror, that lifts you out of your safe, little path and onto a great, wild road whose ending nobody knows? Don't you ever long for that?”
Juliet Marillier, Son of the Shadows

Stephen King
“When all else fails, give up and go to the library.”
Stephen King, 11/22/63
