John Irving
“What is hardest to accept about the passage of time is that the people who once mattered the most to us wind up in parentheses.”
John Irving, The Cider House Rules

Nora Ephron
“Reading is everything. Reading makes me feel like I've accomplished something, learned something, become a better person. Reading makes me smarter. Reading gives me something to talk about later on. Reading is the unbelievably healthy way my attention deficit disorder medicates itself. Reading is escape, and the opposite of escape; it's a way to make contact with reality after a day of making things up, and it's a way of making contact with someone else's imagination after a day that's all too real. Reading is grist. Reading is bliss.”
Nora Ephron, I Feel Bad about My Neck: And Other Thoughts on Being a Woman

Nina Sankovitch
“Books are reason to get up in the morning.”
Nina Sankovitch

William Wordsworth
“The best portion of a good man's life: his little, nameless unremembered acts of kindness and love.”
William Wordsworth, Lyrical Ballads

Amanda Eyre Ward
“Is reading a sport?”
Amanda Eyre Ward, How to Be Lost
