1. "--You're rather well read for a working-class girl, she said with her back to me.--Really? I've found that all my well-read friends are from the working class.--Oh my. Why do you think that is? The purity of poverty?--No. It's just that reading is the cheapest form of entertainment.--Sex is the cheapest form of entertainment.--Not in this house."
Author: Amor Towles
2. "Story, as I understood it by reading Faulkner, Hardy, Cather, and Hemingway, was a powerful and clarifying human invention. The language alone, as I discovered it in Gerard Manley Hopkins and Faulkner, was exquisitely beautiful, also weirdly and mysteriously evocative."

Just as the destruction of Jewry was the necessary condition for the rise and expansion of Nazism, so the ethnic cleansing of Germans was a precondition for the Stalinization of Poland. I first noticed this point when reading an essay by the late Ernest Gellner, who at the end of the war had warned Eastern Europeans that collective punishment of Germans would put them under Stalin's tutelage indefinitely. They would always feel the guilty need for an ally against potential German revenge."
Author: Christopher Hitchens

That is why reading ourselves as a fiction as well as fact is so liberating. The wider we read the freer we become."
Author: Jeanette Winterson

12. "They must talk to each other directly, Ender, mind to mind. What one thinks, another can also think; what one remembers, another can also re-member. Why would they ever develop language? Why would they ever learn to read and write? How would they know what reading and writing were if they saw them? Or signals? Or numbers? Or anything that we use to communicate? This isn't just a matter of translating from one language to another. They don't have a language at all. We used every means we could think of to communicate with them, but they don't even have the machinery to know we're signaling. And maybe they've been trying to think to us, and they can't understand why we don't respond."
Author: Orson Scott Card

Author: Rebecca Rasmussen
14. "The journey is the mystery…the destination the answer. If you don't have a happy ending yet, you have not finished reading the right book."

15. "In its silence, a book is a challenge: it can't lull you with surging music or deafen you with screeching laugh tracks or fire gunshots in your living room; you have to listen to it in your head. A book won't move your eyes for you the way images on a screen do. It won't move your mind unless you give it your mind, or your heart unless you put your heart in it ... To read a story well is to follow it, to act it, to feel it, to become it--everything short of writing it, in fact. Reading is not interactive with a set of rules or options, as games are; reading is actual collaboration with the writer's mind. No wonder not everyone is up to it."
Author: Ursula K. Le Guin
