Johann Hari
“The more novels you read, the better you were at reading other people’s emotions. It was a huge effect. This wasn’t just a sign that you were better educated—because reading nonfiction books, by contrast, had no effect on your empathy.”
Johann Hari, Stolen Focus: Why You Can't Pay Attention - and How to Think Deeply Again

“Don’t absorb criticism from people you wouldn’t go to for advice.”
Matt Haig, The Comfort Book

Mac Barnett
“There are patterns in a life, and patterns in a story, but in real lives and good stories the patterns are hard to see... But sometimes you find a book that feels as strange as life does. These books feel true. These books are important.”
Mac Barnett, The Important Thing About Margaret Wise Brown

“And nor is mental health something we can clear up once and for all, but rather something we always have to attend to, like a garden that needs nurturing, for as long as we live.”
Matt Haig, The Comfort Book

“Crying releases stress hormones. Swearing increases pain tolerance. Fury can motivate us into action. Feel what you feel. Silence and smiles aren’t the only way to respond to pain. Sometimes it is good to howl.”
Matt Haig, The Comfort Book
