If one cannot enjoy reading a book over and over again, there is no use
“If one cannot enjoy reading a book over and over again, there is no use in reading it at all.”
Oscar Wilde

Joseph Heller
“There was only one catch and that was Catch-22, which specified that a concern for one's safety in the face of dangers that were real and immediate was the process of a rational mind. Orr was crazy and could be grounded. All he had to do was ask; and as soon as he did, he would no longer be crazy and would have to fly more missions. Orr would be crazy to fly more missions and sane if he didn't, but if he was sane he had to fly them. If he flew them he was crazy and didn't have to; but if he didn't want to he was sane and had to. Yossarian was moved very deeply by the absolute simplicity of this clause of Catch-22 and let out a respectful whistle.

"That's some catch, that Catch-22," he observed.

"It's the best there is," Doc Daneeka agreed.”
Joseph Heller, Catch-22

Henry Ward Beecher
“Where is human nature so weak as in the bookstore?”
Henry Ward Beecherr

“I am the best-natured creature in the world, and yet I have already killed three, and of these three two were priests.”
Voltaire, Candide

Alan Bradley
“It is not unknown for fathers with a brace of daughters to reel off their names in order of birth when summoning the youngest, and I had long ago become accustomed to being called 'Ophelia Daphne Flavia, damn it.”
Alan Bradley, The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie
