Spritzlet Reading quotes by Richard Hughes
#2. That when you're buying books, you're optimistically thinking you're buying the time to read them.
(Paraphrase of Schopenhauer) - Author: Arthur Schopenhauer
Spritzlet Reading quotes by Arthur Schopenhauer
#3. A man who is eating or lying with his wife or preparing to go to sleep in humility, thankfulness and temperance, is, by Christian standards, in an infinitely higher state than one who is listening to Bach or reading Plato in a state of pride. - Author: C.S. Lewis
Spritzlet Reading quotes by C.S. Lewis
#4. Some people never learn how to talk to kids. They turn up the volume and enunciate with extra care, as if talking to a partially deaf immigrant. They sound as if they're reading lines somebody else wrote for them, or as if what they're saying is really for the benefit of other adults listening and not just for the child. Kids sense that and turn off. - Author: F. Paul Wilson
Spritzlet Reading quotes by F. Paul Wilson
#5. If the book we're reading doesn't wake us up with a blow on the head, what are we reading it for. - Author: Franz Kafka
Spritzlet Reading quotes by Franz Kafka
#6. I go around with my books so much and I love to perform on stage, to remind everybody that the lights are off, the phones are off, and for this hour, it's going to be like your mother reading to you. We're going to remember why we love stories. I think that gets lost in over-intellectualizing. - Author: T.C. Boyle
Spritzlet Reading quotes by T.C. Boyle
#7. We like books that have a lot of dreck in them, matter which presents itself as not wholly relevant (or indeed, at all relevant) but which, carefully attended to, can supply a kind of "sense" of what is going on. This "sense" is not to be obtained by reading between the lines (for there is nothing there, in those white spaces) but by reading the lines themselves looking at them and so arriving at a feeling not of satisfaction exactly, that is too much to expect, but of having read them, of having "completed" them. - Author: Donald Barthelme
Spritzlet Reading quotes by Donald Barthelme
#8. I like reading in a pub rather than a library or study, as it's generally much easier to get a drink. - Author: Pete McCarthy
Spritzlet Reading quotes by Pete McCarthy
#9. There is something called the rapture of the deep, and it refers to what happens when a deep-sea diver spends too much time at the bottom of the ocean and can't tell which way is up. When he surfaces, he's liable to have a condition called the bends, where the body can't adapt to the oxygen levels in the atmosphere. All of this happens to me when I surface from a great book. - Author: Nora Ephron
Spritzlet Reading quotes by Nora Ephron
#10. Books have immortalized great minds. Books have kept ancients secrets alive. A world which least value books, least value the real essence of wisdom and least know how to preserve what is precious! - Author: Ernest Agyemang Yeboah
Spritzlet Reading quotes by Ernest Agyemang Yeboah
#11. The Reich Youth Leader was Baldur von Schirach, a romantically minded young man and an energetic organizer, whose mother was an American and whose great-grandfather, a Union officer, had lost a leg at Bull Run; he told his American jailers at Nuremberg that he had become an anti-Semite at the age of seventeen after reading a book called Eternal Jew, by Henry Ford. - Author: William L. Shirer
Spritzlet Reading quotes by William L. Shirer
#12. With reading, I was very lucky. I had a mother who read to me, not because she had time - she was a busy woman - but she found 10 minutes to come and sit on my bed with a book. - Author: Michael Morpurgo
Spritzlet Reading quotes by Michael Morpurgo
#13. I like reading history, and actually most authors enjoy the research part because it is, after all, easier than writing. - Author: Ken Follett
Spritzlet Reading quotes by Ken Follett
#14. Usually, I set one foot in a library and I feel my own internal volume lower. A library is a physical equivalent of a sigh. It's the silence, sure, but it's also the certainty of all those books, the way they stand side by side with their still, calm conviction. It's the reassurance of knowledge in the face of confusion. - Author: Deb Caletti
Spritzlet Reading quotes by Deb Caletti
#15. The prince closed the tent flap behind him and did a short circle around her, assessing Vhalla from head to toe. "Sit." He motioned to a chair. "Or perhaps you'd rather I threw some pillows on the floor?" Vhalla's eyes widened, hearing the meaning between his words. "You look uncomfortable." The prince paused, his eyes reading hers. "I would think you'd be more at ease in a prince's tent. Or is it just my brother's?" "What do you want?" she demanded. "Today, I saw him in you." Baldair squinted his eyes, as if he was trying to imagine Aldrik imposed atop her. "The way you moved, the way you were rushed by the fight. Tell me, is that the only way he's been in you? - Author: Elise Kova
Spritzlet Reading quotes by Elise Kova
#16. If you are reading this then you have wasted another day of your life day dreaming, rather than planning the life God intended you to live. - Author: Shannon L. Alder
Spritzlet Reading quotes by Shannon L. Alder
#17. Some evidence suggests the left-handers are more likely to have problems with such left-hemisphere functions as reading, writing, speaking and arithmetic; and to be more adept at such right -hemisphere functions as imagination, pattern recognition and general creativity. - Author: Carl Sagan
Spritzlet Reading quotes by Carl Sagan
#18. Every kid in every school no matter their background, deserves to learn the basics about food - where it comes from, how to cook it and how it affects their bodies. These life skills are as important as reading and writing, but they've been lost over the past few generations. We need to bring them back and bring up our kids to be streetwise about food. - Author: Jamie Oliver
Spritzlet Reading quotes by Jamie Oliver
#19. As far as superhero stories, what's appealing is of course that aspect of wish fulfillment. I mean, you start out reading them as a kid, and a couple things jump out at you - there are heroes out there, and you wish you could run into a phone booth and change your life, or be like Peter Parker and put on a mask and become a hero. - Author: John Ridley
Spritzlet Reading quotes by John Ridley
#20. During his reading hours, which were between one and five o'clock in the morning, but not every morning, he had come to the disconcerting conclusion that whistling was not an important theme in literature. - Author: Julio Cortazar
Spritzlet Reading quotes by Julio Cortazar
#21. I started off for home, where I planned to recruit a good book and hide away from the world. - Author: Carlos Ruiz Zafon
Spritzlet Reading quotes by Carlos Ruiz Zafon
#22. To me, the process of writing is just reading what I've written and - like running your hand over one of those mod glass stovetops to find where the heat is - looking for where the energy is in the prose, then going in the direction of that. It's an exercise in being open to whatever is there. - Author: George Saunders
Spritzlet Reading quotes by George Saunders
#23. I was just reading about Paul Simon in 'Uncut', and it was fascinating. I never think about him much or think about his music or anything, but it's interesting to hear his ideas on stuff. - Author: J Mascis
Spritzlet Reading quotes by J Mascis
#24. I keep reading between the lies. - Author: Goodman Ace
Spritzlet Reading quotes by Goodman Ace
#25. We [Panthers] have not said much about the homosexual at all, but we must relate to the homosexual movement because it is a real thing. And I know through reading, and through my life experience and observations that homosexuals are not given freedom and liberty by anyone in the society. They might be the most oppressed people in the society. - Author: Huey Newton
Spritzlet Reading quotes by Huey Newton
#26. My best ideas come to me at unexpected moments, like when I'm reading children's books to my kids (the pictures inspire me), shopping, driving somewhere, seeing different things. - Author: Mary Engelbreit
Spritzlet Reading quotes by Mary Engelbreit
#27. He could also be terrible romantic and thoughtful. My job was a real challenge. The work was difficult and the boss demanding: he thought nothing of calling or emailing at odd hours, even on the weekend; you ignored him at your peril.
There was a point at which everything got to me. And it was exactly at that moment that Chris stepped in and planned a weekend getaway. He found a little cabin out in the woods where there was no cell phone reception-yes!-and without telling anyone, we made our getaway.
Almost. I actually called the boss and told him my cell reception was giving out, and so I wouldn't be able to check messages, something he expected even on the weekends.
As soon as we got to the cabin, I headed to the bedroom. Inside, I opened my suitcase and changed into sexy white Victoria's Secret-style lingerie, complete with corset and thigh-highs. Feeling a little shy and silly, I walked out and leaned against the doorway of the living room where he was sitting.
"Hey!"
"Yeah?" he mumbled from the couch, not bothering to look up from the magazine he was reading.
"Turn around," I said.
He turned around-slowly at first. But as soon as he caught sight of me in that lingerie, he hopped clear over the couch and chased me down the hall to the bedroom. I squealed and giggled the whole way. - Author: Taya Kyle
Spritzlet Reading quotes by Taya Kyle
#28. When topics are complex and meaty, don't create a never-ending email thread. It's amazing how much time people waste composing and reading carefully-worded essays, when a 5 minute in-person chat would resolve the whole thing. - Author: Justin Rosenstein
Spritzlet Reading quotes by Justin Rosenstein
#29. He wanted to say: how could you be so nice and yet so dumb? The best thing you could do with the peasents was to leave them alone. Let them get on with it. When people who can read and write start fighting for those who can't, you just end up with another kind of stupidity. If you want to help them, build a big library or something somewhere and leave the door open. - Author: Terry Pratchett
Spritzlet Reading quotes by Terry Pratchett
#30. Bookish folk aren't what they used to be. Introverted, reserved, studious. There was a time when bookish folk would steer clear of trendy bars, dinner occasions and gatherings. Any social or public encounters would be avoided at all costs because these activities were very un-bookish. Bookish people preferred to stay in, or to sit alone in a quiet pub, reading a good book, or getting some writing done. Writers, in fact, perhaps epitomised these bookish traits most strongly. At least, they used to.
These days, bookish people, such as writers, are commonly found on stage, headlining festivals, or being interviewed on TV. Author events and performances have proliferated, becoming established parts of a writer's role. It's not that authors have suddenly become more extroverted – it's more a case that their job description has changed.
Of course, not all writers are bookish. Not in the traditional sense of the word anyway. Some are well suited for public life, particularly those from certain academic backgrounds where public speaking is encouraged and confidence in social situations is shaped and formed. These writers may even be termed 'gregarious', and are thus happy being offered up for speaking engagements, stage discussions and signings. Good for them. But the others – the timid, shy and mousy authors – they're being thrust into the limelight too. That's my lot. The social wipeouts. Unprepared and ill-equipped to face our reader audience. What's most concerning is - Author: Paul Ewen
Spritzlet Reading quotes by Paul Ewen
#31. That's what love hotels are for."
"I know," says Ai, "but this man comes alone. He says he comes to this room and thinks about the lovers who have been here before him, imagines himself as one of them, imagines himself having someone to hold. He tells whoever is reading this that he's grateful for the love we share without knowing. - Author: Christopher Barzak
Spritzlet Reading quotes by Christopher Barzak
#32. Books are the essence of life. And there is nothing like a good story to pass the time. - Author: Victoria Hislop
Spritzlet Reading quotes by Victoria Hislop
#33. Running a marathon is just like reading a good book. After a while you're just not conscious of the physical act of reading. - Author: Frank Shorter
Spritzlet Reading quotes by Frank Shorter
#34. When reading, only read. When eating, only eat. When thinking, only think. - Author: Seung Sahn
Spritzlet Reading quotes by Seung Sahn

Spritzlet Reading quotes by Tahani Shihab
#36. Millions of students now, in all the schools of America, are reading science fiction and especially, thank God, 'The Martian Chronicles.' - Author: Ray Bradbury
