Not Asking Much

The demand that I make of my reader is that he should devote his whole Life to reading my works.

**James Joyce

You’re so Vain, You probably think this quote is about you

Vanity is so secure in the heart of man that everyone wants to be admired:  even I who write this, and you who read this.

**Blaise Pascal

There are NEVER enough Bookshelves

I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves.

**Anna Quindlen

When Words Change Everything

“Sometimes, you read a book and it fills you with this weird evangelical zeal, and you become convinced that the shattered world will never be put back together unless and until all living humans read the book.”

**John Green

I’ve Been so Many People in My Mind

“Anyone who says they have only one life to live must not know how to read a book.”

**Anonymous

Giving Joy

“If nature has made you for a giver, your hands are born open, and so is your heart; and though there may be times when your hands are empty, your heart is always full, and you can give things out of that–warm things, kind things, sweet things–help and comfort and laughter–and sometimes gay, kind laughter is the best help of all.” 

**A Little Princess
