I read, much of the night, and go south in the winter. ~ T. S. Eliot
Winter Reading quotes by T. S. Eliot
Books of natural history make the most cheerful winter reading. ~ Henry David Thoreau
Winter Reading quotes by Henry David Thoreau
Let this little book be thy friend, if, owing to fortune or through thine own fault, thou canst not find a dearer companion. ~ Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
Winter Reading quotes by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
New York gets god awful cold in the winter but there's a feeling of wacky comradeship somewhere in the streets. ~ Jack Kerouac
Winter Reading quotes by Jack Kerouac
All through the winter months, Rose kept up the practice of sitting by the fire with Peter and a book telling him stories. The doctor stopped to listen one afternoon out of curiosity, and heard her say, "…then the Mermaid said to the Pirate, 'I would rather perish with the boy than go with you.' And the Pirate said, 'So be it,' and sealed them both up inside the treasure chest. Then the pirate's crew got together to lift the chest up, and with a nod from their captain, they cast the chest overboard into the sea. The chest was so heavy, it sank in the water in spite of the air inside, and in seconds it was gone from view, disappearing into the deep blue depths. If the boy and the mermaid were unable to free themselves, they would surely perish." Peter's eyes were wide with interest. "But- I can't tell you what happened- you'll have to find out next time." She stopped and closed the book. Peter shook his head and put his hand on the book. She laughed and said, "You want to hear more now, do you? ~ Christopher Daniel Mechling
Winter Reading quotes by Christopher Daniel Mechling
What? Why? "What? Why?" Zoelner asked. Mac glared at the mind-reading man. "Who are you?" he demanded. "Carnac the Magnificent or somethin'? ~ Julie Ann Walker
Winter Reading quotes by Julie Ann Walker
We read to understand, or to begin to understand. We cannot do but to read. Reading almost as much as breathing, is our essential function. ~ Alberto Manguel
Winter Reading quotes by Alberto Manguel
I want it real slow, baby."- Winter
"How slow?"- Braxxon
"So slow I can feel you entering my soul."- Winter ~ Crystal Spears
Winter Reading quotes by Crystal Spears
Don't wait for writers to be dead to be read; the living ones can use the money. ~ Thomas C. Foster
Winter Reading quotes by Thomas C. Foster
Well, my paper has asked me to do a series: Lives of the Great Musicians, reading time 2 minutes. ~ Dodie Smith
Winter Reading quotes by Dodie Smith
I have to have three or four books going simultaneously. If I'm not impressed in the first 20 pages, I don't bother reading the rest, especially with novels. I'm not a book-club style reader. I'm not looking for life lessons or wanting people to think I'm smart because I'm reading a certain book. ~ Chris Abani
Winter Reading quotes by Chris Abani
Even the safest of books are useless without reading. ~ Jonathan Friesen
Winter Reading quotes by Jonathan Friesen
He won't last the winter if we stay here, though, Mousefur ~ Erin Hunter
Winter Reading quotes by Erin Hunter
What is reading, in the last analysis, but an interchange of thought between writer and reader? If the book enters the reader's mind just as it left the writer's -- without any of the additions and modifications inevitably produced by contact with a new body of thought -- it has been read to no purpose. ~ Edith Wharton
Winter Reading quotes by Edith Wharton
Truth is powerful, and, if not instantly, at least by slow
degrees, may make good her possession. Gleams of good sense may
penetrate through the thickest clouds of error … and, as the true
object of education is not to render the pupil the mere copy of his
preceptor, it is rather to be rejoiced in, than lamented, that various
reading should lead him into new trains of thinking; open to him new
mines of science and new incentives to virtue; and perhaps, by a blended
and compound effect, produce in him an improvement which was out of the
limits of his lessons, and raise him to heights the preceptor never
knew. ~ William Godwin
Winter Reading quotes by William Godwin
I loved the freedom writers diary and even though i only read it because my teacher made us i loved the book. it shows me some feelings that i also feel sometimes, and even though i never finished reading it because i got lazy its the only book ive ever liked ~ Erin Gruwell
Winter Reading quotes by Erin Gruwell
I walked slowly back home, breathing deeply and taking in all the sights and sounds of a private country club golf course: the beeping of a distant golf cart driving in reverse, the barking of the bird dogs Dr. Burris took hunting with him every fall and winter, millions of tiny birds in triumphant song. It was the closest thing to the country that I'd known until now.
And my thoughts turned to Marlboro Man.
I was thinking of him when I walked back into the house, imagining his gorgeous voice in my ear when I heard the phone ringing in my room. I ran up the stairs, skipping three steps at a time, and answered the phone, breathless.
"Hello?" I gasped.
"Hey there," Marlboro Man said. "What are you doing?"
"Oh, I just went for a run on the golf course," I answered. As if I did it every day.
"Well, I just want you to know I'm coming to get you at five," he said. "I'm having Ree withdrawals."
"You mean since midnight, when we last saw each other?" I joked. Actually, I knew exactly what he meant.
"Yeah," he said. "That's way, way too long, and I'm not gonna put up with it anymore." I loved it when he took charge.
"Okay, then--fine," I said, surrendering. "I don't want to argue. I'll see you at five. ~ Ree Drummond
Winter Reading quotes by Ree Drummond
The counsels of the old, like the winter sun, shine, but give no heat. ~ Luc De Clapiers
Winter Reading quotes by Luc De Clapiers
Interpreting dreams for Iranians was just as much a sacrament as reading coffee cups was for Turks ~ Soroosh Shahrivar
Winter Reading quotes by Soroosh Shahrivar
It's better to read in the library. Sitting at my favorite table by the window reading and listening to the sound of other folks turning pages makes me feel like I'm in a house full of company I don't have to talk to. ~ Lesa Cline-Ransome
Winter Reading quotes by Lesa Cline-Ransome
Kindle, isn't it?" the waitress asked. "I got one for Christmas, and I love it. I'm reading my way through all of Jodi Picoult's books." "Oh, probably not all of them," Wesley said. "Huh? Why not?" "She's probably got another one done already. That's all I meant." "And James Patterson's probably written one since he got up this morning!" she said, and went off chortling. ~ Stephen King
Winter Reading quotes by Stephen King
What if winters were only there to make flowers bloom and not to see them dying in summer heat? ~ Crestless Wave
Winter Reading quotes by Crestless Wave
and here instead's another version of what was happening that morning, as if from a novel in which sophia is the kind of character she'd choose to be, prefer to be, a character in a much more classic sort of story, perfectly honed and comforting, about how sombre yet bright the major-symphony of winter is and how beautiful everything looks under a high frost, how every grassblade is enhanced and silvered into individual beauty by it, how even the dull tarmac of the roads, the paving under our feet, shines when the weather's been cold enough and how something at the heart of us, at the heart of all our cold and frozen states, melts when we encounter a time of peace on earth, goodwill to all men; a story in which there's no room for severed heads; a work in which sophia's perfectly honed minor-symphony modesty and narrative decorum complement the story she's in with the right kind of quiet wisdom-from-experience ageing-female status, making it a story that's thoughtful, dignified, conventional in structure thank god, the kind of quality literary fiction where the slow drift of snow across the landscape is merciful, has a perfect muffling decorum of its own, snow falling to whiten, soften, blur and prettify even further a landscape where there are no heads divided from bodies hanging around in the air or anywhere, either new ones, from new atrocities or murders or terrorisms, or old ones, left over from old historic atrocities and murders and terrorisms and bequeathed to the fut ~ Ali Smith
Winter Reading quotes by Ali Smith
Somehow I had a premonition of what I so often felt at later times: that you did not have the right to open a single book unless you engaged to read them all. With every line you read, you were breaking off a portion of the world. Before books, the world was intact, and afterwards it might be restored to wholeness once again. But how was I, who could not read, to take up the challenge laid down by all of them? ~ Rainer Maria Rilke
Winter Reading quotes by Rainer Maria Rilke
She become moody and depressed. She started wearing black and listening to the Smiths and reading Camus in the original whatever. Her eyes became interestingly pouchy and sunken. ~ Lev Grossman
Winter Reading quotes by Lev Grossman
We kiss. Her hands are freezing on my face, and she tastes like coffee and the smell of the onion is still stuck in my nose, and my lips are all dry from the endless winter. And it's awesome. ~ John Green
Winter Reading quotes by John Green
The winter is made and you have to bear it,
The winter web, the winter woven, wind and wind,
For all the thoughts of summer that go with it
In the mind, pupa of straw, moppet of rags ... ~ Wallace Stevens
Winter Reading quotes by Wallace Stevens
I am paralyzed. This is not me. I am an invention created by an invention, which was created by an author whose name appears at the top of this text. If you have not read Baudrillard, you should stop reading this and go seek him out right now. ~ Christopher Higgs
Winter Reading quotes by Christopher Higgs
If your library is not "unsafe," it probably isn't doing its job. ~ John Berry
Winter Reading quotes by John Berry
Open up your chakra
Because once that's happened there's no going back
Once you start to see what is really happening
Who the enemy you should be attackin' is
Stuck on the block, READ, READ!
Sittin' in the box, READ, READ!
Don't let them say what you can achieve
Cos' when people are enslaved
One of the first things they do is stop them reading
Cos' it is well understood that intelligent people will take their freedom
Cos' if we knew our power we would understand that we can't be held down
If we knew our power, we would not elevate not one of these clowns
If we knew our power, we wouldn't get arrogant when we get two pennies
If we knew our power, we would see what everybody sees, that we're rich already! ~ Akala
Winter Reading quotes by Akala
One does well to put on gloves when reading the New Testament. The proximity of so much uncleanliness almost forces one to do this. ~ Friedrich Nietzsche
Winter Reading quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
It's ahead of us. All I can tell you is, not even courage will help." "Are you reading Alma Mahler again?" "No." Her voice was even and knowing. The underground river. The ceiling lowers, grows wet, the water rushes into darkness. The air becomes damp and icy, the passage narrows. Light is lost here, sound; the current begins to flow beneath great, impassable slabs. ~ James Salter
Winter Reading quotes by James Salter
The genius of reading and of gardening are antagonistic, like resinous and vitreous electricity. One is concentrative in sparks and shocks: the other is diffuse strength; so that each disqualifies its workman for the other's duties. ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
Winter Reading quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
To encourage literature and the arts is a duty which every good citizen owes to his country. ~ George Washington
Winter Reading quotes by George Washington
It's because of the way you are. It's why you're happy reading novels. You're only comfortable with a piece of the world that you can hold in your hand. ~ Lan Samantha Chang
Winter Reading quotes by Lan Samantha Chang

Winter Reading quotes by Vivian Gornick
Winter Grace It is autumn again and our anxiety blows With the wind, breaking the heart of the rose, Petals and leaves fall down and everything goes. All but the seed, all but the hard bright berry And the bulbs we kneel on the earth to bury And lay away with our anguish and our worry. It is time we learned again the winter grace To put the nerves to sleep in a dark place And smooth the lines in the self-tortured face. For we are at the end of our endurance nearly And we shall have to die this winter surely, For this is the end of more than a season clearly. Now we shall have to be poor, to yield up all, With the leaves wither, with the petals fall, Now we shall have to die, once and for all. Before the seed of faith so deep and still Pushes up gently through the frozen will And the joyless wake and learn to be joyful. Before this buried love leaps up from sorrow And doubt and violence and pity follow To greet the radiant morning and the swallow. ~ May Sarton
Winter Reading quotes by May Sarton
The child who gets lost in a book can emerge from the experience a changeling. ~ Maureen Corrigan
Winter Reading quotes by Maureen Corrigan
What a blessing it is to love books. ~ Elizabeth Von Arnim
Winter Reading quotes by Elizabeth Von Arnim
Look not at the face, young girl, look at the heart. The heart of a handsome young
man is often deformed. There are hearts in which love does not keep. Young girl, the
pine is not beautiful; it is not beautiful like the poplar, but it keeps its foliage in
winter. ~ Victor Hugo
Winter Reading quotes by Victor Hugo
I declare the 22nd Olympic Winter Games open. ~ Shani Davis
Winter Reading quotes by Shani Davis
The beauty and magnitude of a diva's voice resides, so the iconography suggests, in her deformity. Her voice is beautiful because she herself is not-and her ugliness is interpreted as a sign of moral and social deviance. Reading biographies of divas, I can't ignore the repeated references to physical flaws-for example, Benedetta Pisaroni's "features horribly disfigured by small-pox," prompting spectators to shut their eyes "so as to hear without being condemned to see." Audiences speculated that Maria Malibran was not anatomically a woman, but an androgyne or hermaphrodite-an aberrant physique to match her voice's magic power. ~ Wayne Koestenbaum
