The pleasure of all reading is doubled when one lives with another who shares the same books.
Katherine Mansfield quotes
Either write things worth reading or do things worth the writing.
Benjamin Franklin quotes
In the tenth grade, I was fascinated with the question 'what was immortality?' I read numerous philosophies, but the theory which has stayed with me was that of Plato, the Symposium. The idea that through Love and Beauty we achieve immortality. Putting all our soul into our work makes it not only alive with passion and emotion, but it also exists as one of the truest and most honest expressions of self. Making life a beautiful art, the art then retaining life. I still believe Beauty is one of those most important and difficult things to create and express.
Jewel Kilcher quotes
I write constantly, but only in my journals. I have three of them: one for travel, one for home, and one I write in before bed. But the last thing I want is other people reading it..... What's really fun is reading your journal, like a year later, or even a month, and realizing how much you've changed. You're looking at something you said, something you really meant at the time, and you're like, 'I can't believe I ever really believed that! I am such an asshole!' I think that's the greatest thing about growing up... .
Cameron Diaz quotes
It is the duty of every cultured man or woman to read sympathetically the scriptures of the world. If we are to respect others' religions as we would have them respect our own, a friendly study of the world's religions is a sacred duty.
Mahatma Gandhi quotes
Politicians should read science fiction, not westerns and detective stories.
Arthur C. Clarke quotes
It was, of course, a lie what you read about my religious convictions, a lie which is being systematically repeated. I do not believe in a personal God and I have never denied this but have expressed it clearly. If something is in me which can be called religious then it is the unbounded admiration for the structure of the world so far as our science can reveal it.
Albert Einstein quotes
Dear Miss …I have read about sixteen pages of your manuscript ... I suffered exactly the same treatment at the hands of my teachers who disliked me for my independence and passed over me when they wanted assistants ... keep your manuscript for your sons and daughters, in order that they may derive consolation from it and not give a damn for what their teachers tell them or think of them. ... There is too much education altogether.
Albert Einstein quotes
It's a good thing for an uneducated man to read books of quotations.
Winston Churchill quotes
Some day you will be old enough to start reading fairy tales again.
C.S. Lewis quotes
