Anne Fadiman
“My daughter is seven, and some of the other second-grade parents complain that their children don't read for pleasure. When I visit their homes, the children's rooms are crammed with expensive books, but the parent's rooms are empty. Those children do not see their parents reading, as I did every day of my childhood. By contrast, when I walk into an apartment with books on the shelves, books on the bedside tables, books on the floor, and books on the toilet tank, then I know what I would see if I opened the door that says 'PRIVATE--GROWNUPS KEEP OUT': a child sprawled on the bed, reading.”
Anne Fadiman, Ex Libris: Confessions of a Common Reader

Mark Twain
“I have never let my schooling interfere with my education.”
Mark Twain

Anne Fadiman
“I can think of few better ways to introduce a child to books than to let her stack them, upend them, rearrange them, and get her fingerprints all over them.”
Anne Fadiman, Ex Libris: Confessions of a Common Reader

Eudora Welty
“Long before I wrote stories, I listened for stories. Listening for them is something more acute than listening to them. I suppose it’s an early form of participation in what goes on. Listening children know stories are there. When their elders sit and begin, children are just waiting and hoping for one to come out, like a mouse from its hole.”
Eudora Welty, One Writer's Beginnings

Mahatma Gandhi
“Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.”
Mahatma Gandhi
