Charles Dickens
“No one who can read, ever looks at a book, even unopened on a shelf, like one who cannot.”
Charles Dickens, Our Mutual Friend

James Clavell
“Leave the problems of God to God and karma to karma. Today you're here and nothing you do will change that. Today you are alive and here and honored and blessed with good fortune. Look at this suset, it's beautiful, neh? This sunset exists. Tomorrow does not exist. There is only now. Please look. It is so beautiful and it will never happen ever again, never, not this sunset, never in all infinity. Lose yourself in it, make yourself one with nature and do not worry about karma, yours, mine, or that of the village.”
James Clavell

Mark Twain
“Never put off till tomorrow what may be done day after tomorrow just as well.”
Mark Twain

Elizabeth Kostova
“It was good to walk into a library again; it smelled like home.”
Elizabeth Kostova, The Historian

Elizabeth Kostova
“When you handle books all day long, every new one is a friend and a temptation.”
Elizabeth Kostovia, The Historian
