Books, books, books. It was not that I read so much. I read and re-read the same ones. But all of them were necessary to me. Their presence, their smell, the letters of their titles, and the texture of their leather bindings. ~ Colette
Books Reading Colette quotes by Colette
It was at this time that she entirely gave up on reading.
The covers of books looked like coffins to her, either shabby or ornate, and what was inside them might as well have been dust. ~ Alice Munro
Books Reading Colette quotes by Alice Munro
Books are both our luxuries and our daily bread. ~ Henry Stevens
Books Reading Colette quotes by Henry Stevens
There is also a trilogy of books out. I started reading right after Christmas Divergent. I went to read Insurgent after, and now I'm on the third one. I don't know, it's Detergent or whatever. But it's written by a 26-year-old girl. It's brilliant. But I'm about halfway through now on book number three. Wait until you get to book number three. Hello, Google genome project.

Technology is advancing at a rapid pace, and yet, morality and ethics are afterthoughts. We're excited about discovery and advancement, you know? We're in fact so excited that we don't even take the time to discuss or debate the moral dilemmas and implications of new technology. Sure, we're still in control of technology now, but does there come a time when we're not? Who will be the one that says turn it off? When do things go wrong?

I don't see anyone at Google or in the government or anyone at the forefront of technology boom that is contemplating the ethics and morality issues. Now that is a truly scary thought that doesn't come in a movie. ~ Glenn Beck
Books Reading Colette quotes by Glenn Beck
When I was in high school I had to write an essay duplicating the manner and subject of Bacon's 'On Reading,' and I remember including all the comfortable clichés. I said nothing about how books made me masturbate. I said nothing about nightmares, about daydreaming, about aching, cock-stiffening loneliness. I said something about wonder and curiosity, the improvement of character, quickening of sensibility, enlargement of mind, but nothing about the disappearance of the self in a terrible quake of earth. I did not say that reading drove a knife into the body. I did not say that as the man at breakfast calmly spoons his oatmeal into his mouth while words pass woundlessly through his eyes, he divides more noisily than chewing, becomes a gulf, a Red Sea none shall pass over, dry-shod across. There is no miracle more menacing than that one. I did not write about the slow return from a story like the ebb of a fever, the unique quality it conferred which set you apart from others as though touched by the gods. I did not write about the despair of not willing to be oneself or the contrary despair of total entelechy. I did not write about reading as a refuge, a toy drug, a pitiless judgement. ~ William H. Gass
Books Reading Colette quotes by William H. Gass
I was arguing not that everyone should read books by ladies - though shifting the balance matters - but that maybe the whole point of reading is to be able to explore and also transcend your gender (and race and class and orientation and nationality and moment in history and age and ability) and experience being others. ~ Rebecca Solnit
Books Reading Colette quotes by Rebecca Solnit
Language spread its warm, absurd rays over all my adolescent thoughts, and I felt the way we all long to feel: moody, lonely, lovesick and explosive with the prospects of tomorrow. ~ Spencer Gordon
Books Reading Colette quotes by Spencer Gordon
There are a lot of good books around. People don't read any more. It's a sad state of affairs. Reading's the only thing that allows you to use your imagination. When you watch films it's someone else's vision, isn't it? ~ Lemmy Kilmister
Books Reading Colette quotes by Lemmy Kilmister
...that the decline in reading among children was largely the fault of their parents. Parents these days don't read books, themselves, but they feel they should make their children read. Since they aren't readers, however, they have no idea what to give their children. That's why they cling to the recommendations from the Ministry of Education. Those books are all insufferably boring and, as a result, the kids learn to hate books. It's a vicious cycle with no end in sight. ~ Keigo Higashino
Books Reading Colette quotes by Keigo Higashino
I am obsessed with books.
I am a book collector. ~ Lailah Gifty Akita
Books Reading Colette quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
One night, after they had made love, Pelletier got up naked and went looking among his books for a novel by Archimboldi. After hesitating for a moment he decided on The leather mask, thinking that with some luck Vanessa might read it as a horror novel, might be attracted by the sinister side of the book. She was surprised at first by the gift, then touched, since she was used to her clients giving her clothes or shoes or lingerie. Really, she was very happy with it, especially when Pelletier explained who Archimboldi was and the role the German writer played in his life.
"It's as if you were giving me a part of you", said Vanessa.
The remark left Pelletier a bit confused, since in a way it was perfectly true, Archimboldi was by now a part of him, the author belonged to him insofar as Pelletier had, a long with few others, instituted a new reading of the German, a reading that would endure, a reading as ambitious as Archimboldi's writing, and this reading would keep pace with Archimboldi's writing for a long time, until the reading was exhausted or until Archimboldi's writing - the capacity of Archimboldian oeuvre to spark emotions and revelations - was exhausted (but he didn't believe that would happen), though in another way it wasn't true, because sometimes, especially since he and Espinoza had given up their trips to London and stopped seeing Liz Norton, Archimboldi's work, his novels and stories, that is, seemed completely foreign, a shapeless and mysterious ver ~ Roberto Bolano
Books Reading Colette quotes by Roberto Bolano
I'm a voice for children's books and children's reading. ~ Malorie Blackman
Books Reading Colette quotes by Malorie Blackman
Reading was not an escape for her, any more than it is for me. It was an aspect of direct experience. She distinguished, of course, between the fictional world and the real one, in which she had to prepare dinners and so on. Still, for us, the fictional world was an extension of the real, and in no way a substitute for it, or refuge from it. Any more than sleeping is a substitute for waking. (Jincy Willett) ~ Jincy Willett
Books Reading Colette quotes by Jincy Willett
I read stuff. Books are not my only friends, but we're friendly. So there. ~ Maria Dahvana Headley
Books Reading Colette quotes by Maria Dahvana Headley
That's what this country needs -- more books! ~ Christopher Morley
Books Reading Colette quotes by Christopher Morley
He traced his nose to my shoulder. Once he came back to where his lips had begun, he whispered, "Turn around, Jordan. ~ M. Jane Early
Books Reading Colette quotes by M. Jane Early
If a book about failures doesn't sell, is it a success? ~ Jerry Seinfeld
Books Reading Colette quotes by Jerry Seinfeld
It wasn't that time stopped in the library. It was as if it were captured, collected here, and in all libraries -- and not only my time, my life, but all human time as well. In the library, time is dammed up--not just stopped but saved. ~ Susan Orlean
Books Reading Colette quotes by Susan Orlean
You have to have cake while you're reading. It's the law. ~ Veronica Henry
Books Reading Colette quotes by Veronica Henry
At the sight of a good book, you just can't walk away but to claim and read it. ~ Lailah Gifty Akita
Books Reading Colette quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
She couldn't help thinking that something was wrong with a person had more shoes than books in their home. ~ Victoria Connelly
Books Reading Colette quotes by Victoria Connelly
I marveled at how they were all closed up, asleep with their secrets unseen until you reached up and took the book down from the shelf. ~ Deborah Lawrenson
Books Reading Colette quotes by Deborah Lawrenson
What is the point of all these books
when I learn best by reading your body? ~ Kamand Kojouri
Books Reading Colette quotes by Kamand Kojouri
So I have loitered my life away, reading books, looking at pictures, going to plays, hearing, thinking, writing on what pleased me best. I have wanted only one thing to make me happy, but wanting that have wanted everything. ~ William Hazlitt
Books Reading Colette quotes by William Hazlitt
Ultimately, nobody can get more out of things, including books, than he already knows. ~ Friedrich Nietzsche
Books Reading Colette quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
Reading to younger children has come to be more or less an accepted thing, but reading to older children or to a family group is done less today with all the other attractions taking the time. Reading to a group provides a unity, a cohesion, that is wonderful. It is common bond of interest. It brings up plenty of things for family talk and discussion. A child who has been read to shows results in his speech and wider experience with languages. And definitely, if the reading is of good books, it is the beginning of good taste in literature. ~ Phyllis R. Fenner
Books Reading Colette quotes by Phyllis R. Fenner
He ran his finger down the hardcover keyboard of book spines. Individual memories of each, particularly his first experience with every title, burned through him ~ Mike Robinson
Books Reading Colette quotes by Mike Robinson
Instead of filling in the blanks, I wanted to be blank and be filled in. ~ Walter Kirn
Books Reading Colette quotes by Walter Kirn
Dare to imagine. Dare to be.
Books are the seeds. Dreams are the soil.
The fruit of the harvest, a world reborn. ~ Richelle E. Goodrich
Books Reading Colette quotes by Richelle E. Goodrich
A great writer is a blitzed illusionist of portable magic. You're welcome. ~ A.K. Kuykendall
Books Reading Colette quotes by A.K. Kuykendall
Gadgetry will continue to relieve mankind of tedious jobs. Kitchen units will be devised that will prepare 'automeals,' heating water and converting it to coffee; toasting bread; frying, poaching or scrambling eggs, grilling bacon, and so on. Breakfasts will be 'ordered' the night before to be ready by a specified hour the next morning.
Communications will become sight-sound and you will see as well as hear the person you telephone. The screen can be used not only to see the people you call but also for studying documents and photographs and reading passages from books. Synchronous satellites, hovering in space will make it possible for you to direct-dial any spot on earth, including the weather stations in Antarctica.
[M]en will continue to withdraw from nature in order to create an environment that will suit them better. By 2014, electroluminescent panels will be in common use. Ceilings and walls will glow softly, and in a variety of colors that will change at the touch of a push button.
Robots will neither be common nor very good in 2014, but they will be in existence.
The appliances of 2014 will have no electric cords, of course, for they will be powered by long- lived batteries running on radioisotopes.
"[H]ighways … in the more advanced sections of the world will have passed their peak in 2014; there will be increasing emphasis on transportation that makes the least possible contact with the surface. There will be aircraft, of course, but ev ~ Isaac Asimov
