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

James Clavell
“Leave the problems of God to God and karma to karma. Today you’re here and nothing you can do will change that. Today you’re alive and here and honored, and blessed with good fortune. Look at this sunset, 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, Shōgun

Neil Gaiman
“What I say is, a town isn’t a town without a bookstore. It may call itself a town, but unless it’s got a bookstore, it knows it’s not foolin’ a soul.”
Neil Gaiman, American Gods

Marcus Tullius Cicero
“A room without books is like a body without a soul.”
Marcus Tullius Cicero

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
