Collect books, even if you don’t plan on reading them right away. Nothing is more important than an unread library.
- Austin Kleon (via h-o-r-n-g-r-y)
A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies, said Jojen. The man who never reads lives only one.
Robert Pattinson: “If you find a girl who reads, keep her close. When you find her up at 2 AM clutching a book to her chest and weeping, make her a cup of tea and hold her. You may lose her for a couple of hours but she will always come back to you. She’ll talk as if the characters in the book are real, because for a while, they always are. Date a girl who reads because you deserve it. You deserve a girl who can give you the most colorful life imaginable. If you can only give her monotony, and stale hours and half-baked proposals, then you’re better off alone. If you want the world and the worlds beyond it, date a girl who reads.”
