Oscar Wilde
“Experience is the hardest kind of teacher. It gives you the test first and the lesson afterward.”
Oscar Wilde

Barbara Kingsolver
“a good story doesn’t just copy life, it pushes back on it.”
Barbara Kingsolver, Demon Copperhead

“I think a bookshop is like a map of the world. There are infinite paths you can take through it and none of them are right or wrong. Here in a bookshop we give readers landmarks to help them find their way, but every reader has to learn to set their own compass.”
Anna James, Tilly and the Bookwanderers

Helen Mirren
“Before you argue with someone, ask yourself, is that person even mentally mature enough to grasp the concept of a different perspective. Because if not, there's absolutely no point.”
Helen Mirren

Holly Smale
“Where does a story end? It's a lie. The last page of a book, because it masquerades as a conclusion...But life isn't like that, so books are dishonest. Maybe that's why humans like them.”
Holly Smale, Cassandra in Reverse
