Oscar Wilde
“It is what you read when you don't have to that determines what you will be when you can't help it.”
Oscar Wilde

Maureen Corrigan
“It's not that I don't like people. It's just that when I'm in the company of others - even my nearest and dearest - there always comes a moment when I'd rather be reading a book.”
Maureen Corrigan, Leave Me Alone, I'm Reading: Finding and Losing Myself in Books

Charlotte Brontë
“Conventionality is not morality. Self-righteousness is not religion. To attack the first is not to assail the last. To pluck the mask from the face of the Pharisee, is not to lift an impious hand to the Crown of Thorns.

These things and deeds are diametrically opposed: they are as distinct as is vice from virtue. Men too often confound them: they should not be confounded: appearance should not be mistaken for truth; narrow human doctrines, that only tend to elate and magnify a few, should not be substituted for the world-redeeming creed of Christ. There is – I repeat it – a difference; and it is a good, and not a bad action to mark broadly and clearly the line of separation between them.”
Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre

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

Carolyn G. Heilbrun
“A literary academic can no more pass a bookstore than an alcoholic can pass a bar.”
Amanda Cross
