Quotes

I will be participating in the event Read-A-Thon this Saturday 22-October-2011. I will be a Cheerleader :D My team's name is Golden Grahams. How cool is that? :P I can't wait!! So the point is cheering people on blogs and on twitter to enjoy their reading. So I need to come out with an idea how to do that. And I was thinking... I LOVE quotes! I've always loved quotes from books, movies, so cool internet sites. So I said "Why not?" I think it's a great idea. I've been searching the internet today and found this incredible site with quotes about books. I posted some that I really really like. And then I will choose one or two of them which I'll use to cheer people while reading on Read-A-Thon. 

Books let us into their souls and lay open to us the secrets of our own.  ~William Hazlitt

You know you've read a good book when you turn the last page and feel a little as if you have lost a friend.  ~Paul Sweeney

Books can be dangerous.  The best ones should be labeled "This could change your life."  ~Helen Exley

"Tell me what you read and I'll tell you who you are" is true enough, but I'd know you better if you told me what you reread.  ~Fran├žois Mauriac

Books are a uniquely portable magic.  ~Stephen King

Except a living man there is nothing more wonderful than a book!  A message to us from the dead, - from human souls whom we never saw, who lived perhaps thousands of miles away; and yet these, on those little sheets of paper, speak to us, teach us, comfort us, open their hearts to us as brothers.  ~Charles Kingsley

To read a book for the first time is to make an acquaintance with a new friend; to read it for a second time is to meet an old one.  ~Chinese Saying

No entertainment is so cheap as reading, nor any pleasure so lasting.  ~Mary Wortley Montagu

A blessed companion is a book, - a book that, fitly chosen, is a lifelong friend,... a book that, at a touch, pours its heart into our own.  ~Douglas Jerrold

This nice and subtle happiness of reading, this joy not chilled by age, this polite and unpunished vice, this selfish, serene life-long intoxication.  ~Logan Pearsall Smith

I so so love them!! 
The site I used: Quote Garden
