J.K. Rowling
“If you don’t like to read, you haven’t found the right book.”
J.K Rowling

John Berger
“When we read a story, we inhabit it. The covers of the book are like a roof and four walls. What is to happen next will take place within the four walls of the story. And this is possible because the story's voice makes everything its own.”
John Berger, Keeping a Rendezvous

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

“Ask yourself: 'Do I feel the need to laminate?' Then teaching is for you.”
Gordon Korman
