“There are a lot of people like me, people who need books like they need air.” – Richard Marek

“A real book is not one that’s read, but one that reads us.” ~ W. H. Auden

“I have often imagined that Paradise will be a kind of library.” ~ Jorge Louis Borges

All good and true book-lovers practice the pleasing and improving avocation of
reading in bed….No book can be appreciated until it has been slept with and dreamed over.” ~ Eugene Field

“No book is really worth reading at that age of ten which is not
equally (and often far more) worth reading at the age of fifty and beyond.” ~ C. S. Lewis

“Books are becoming everything to me. If I had at this moment any choice in life, I would bury myself in one of those immense libraries…and never pass a waking hour without a book before me. ” ~ Thomas B. Macaulay

“Life can’t really ever defeat a writer who is in love
with writing,
for life itself is a writer’s lover until death – fascinating,
cruel, lavish, warm,
cold, treacherous, constant.” ~ Edna Ferber

About loverofwords20

Allison is an aspiring author, and a lover of words, music, and the Lord Jesus Christ. She is also abysmal at these “about you” things, being unable to think of quirky characteristics at the drop of a hat. However, she enjoys singing randomly and loudly, and laughing hysterically while being caught in the rain.

    C.S. Lewis had another one that was very similar. He said that any good children’s book that could not be enjoyed by adults was not a good children’s book at all. I agree, and I love-a da books.

    • I love both of those statements! I agree – good books are in a class all of their own and retain the ability to be enjoyed at any age. 🙂 As for books in general…can’t get much better than that. 🙂
