Margaret Atwood
“We all know that a book is not really a person. It isn’t a human being. But if you are a lover of books as books – as objects, that is – and ignore the human element in them – that is, their voices – you will be committing an error of the soul, because you will be an idolator, or else a fetishist.”
Margaret Atwood

Corey Redekop
“Literature is a virus.”
Corey Redekop, Shelf Monkey

Alberto Manguel
“In the light, we read the inventions of others; in the darkness we invent our own stories. ”
Alberto Manguel, The Library at Night

Emily St. John Mandel
“He placed a pinch of snow on his tongue and thought of making snow ice cream with Frank and their mother when they were small boys - 'First you stir in the vanilla' - Frank standing on a stool on his wondrously functional pre-Libya legs, the bullet that would sever his spinal cord still twenty-five years away but already approaching: a woman giving birth to a child who will someday pull the trigger on a gun, a designer sketching the weapon or its precursor, a dictator making a decision that will spark in the fullness of time into the conflagration that Frank will go overseas to cover for Reuters, the pieces of a pattern drifting closer together.”
Emily St. John Mandel, Station Eleven

Stan Laurel
“You can lead a horse to water, but a pencil must be lead.”
Stan Laurel
