My Quotes : )

In being honest with myself I have only chosen a handful of quotes. You may, as I have ,find an understanding and connection to the following sayings. (I have included a quote from Mason Cooley which I do not fully understand now, but believe that with the passing of time I will one day know why it has intrigued me so much today)

"Of all the diversions of life, there is none so proper to fill up its empty spaces as the reading of useful and entertaining authors."
Author: Joseph Addison

"Books are like imprisoned souls till someone takes them down from a shelf and frees them."
Author: Samuel Butler

"Reading a book is like re-writing it for yourself.... You bring to a novel, anything you read, all your experience of the world. You bring your history and you read it in you own terms."
Author: Angela Carter

"If I had found the words I was looking for, I would not have read so much"
Author: Mason Cooley
