“I think part of why I have so many books around me and why I read every day is because I mythologize the writer. I don’t do that with any other artists.”
Philip Seymour Hoffman

“It is better to be in chains with friends
than to be in a garden with strangers.”
Persian Proverb

“Books … they’re kind of a compulsion for me. To find a great bookstore is a great thing.”
Philip Seymour Hoffman

Ernest Hemingway
“Every day is a new day. It is better to be lucky. But I would rather be exact. Then when luck comes you are ready.”
Ernest Hemingway, The Old Man and the Sea

Pat Conroy
“You get a little moody sometimes but I think that's because you like to read. People that like to read are always a little fucked up.”
