Dorothy Parker
Razors pain you,
Rivers are damp,
Acids stain you,
And drugs cause cramp.
Guns aren't lawful,
Nooses give,
Gas smells awful.
You might as well live.”
Dorothy Parker, Enough Rope

Christopher  Morley
“The real purpose of books is to trap the mind into doing its own thinking. ”

Matsuo Bashō
“Do not seek to follow in the footsteps of the wise; seek what they sought.”
Matsuo Basho

Ursula K. Le Guin
“The book itself is a curious artifact, not showy in its technology but complex and extremely efficient: a really neat little device, compact, often very pleasant to look at and handle, that can last decades, even centuries. It doesn't have to be plugged in, activated, or performed by a machine; all it needs is light, a human eye, and a human mind. It is not one of a kind, and it is not ephemeral. It lasts. It is reliable. If a book told you something when you were fifteen, it will tell it to you again when you're fifty, though you may understand it so differently that it seems you're reading a whole new book."

(Staying Awake: Notes on the alleged decline of reading, Harper's Magazine, February 2008)”
Ursula K. Le Guin

Neil Gaiman
“He had noticed that events were cowards: they didn't occur singly, but instead they would run in packs and leap out at him all at once.”
Neil Gaiman, Neverwhere
