'The Lorax' book was intended to be propaganda.
I talk to my readers on social networking sites, but I never tell them what the book is about. Writing is lonely, so from time to time I talk to them on the Internet. It's like chatting at a bar without leaving your office. I talk with them about a lot of things other than my books.
It's a natural thing for people to say, you know, Who's in this book? I find myself get ting a little defensive. People come along and I'm waiting for that first question.
If I read a book that impresses me, I have to take myself firmly by the hand, before I mix with other people; otherwise they would think my mind rather queer.
When one man dies, one chapter is not torn out of the book, but translated into a better language.
I really am an open book. I don't keep anything in at all, which is good and bad.
A man's got to take a lot of punishment to write a really funny book.
The new year stands before us, like a chapter in a book, waiting to be written. We can help write that story by setting goals.
'Joker' was a violent, dark, and brutal book, so I wanted to do something a little less heavy. I played around with the idea of a children's book, and that eventually became 'Noel.' And I just kept finding these parallels between things I could do with Batman and Charles Dickens' 'A Christmas Carol.'
Beware of the person of one book.
In true education, anything that comes to our hand is as good as a book: the prank of a page- boy, the blunder of a servant, a bit of table talk - they are all part of the curriculum.
Michel de Montaigne
Promiscuity is like never reading past the first page. Monogamy is like reading the same book over and over.
I never learned anything at all in school and didn't read a book for pleasure until I was 19 years old.
Sometimes when I think how good my book can be, I can hardly breathe.
To read a paper book is another experience: you can do it on a ship, on the branch of a tree, on your bed, even if there is a blackout.
A tablet replacing an exercise book is not innovation, it's just a different way to make notes.
If you are writing any book about the end of the world, what you are really writing about is what's worth saving about it.
Architecture is a very dangerous job. If a writer makes a bad book, eh, people don't read it. But if you make bad architecture, you impose ugliness on a place for a hundred years.
To me, the greatest invention of my lifetime is the laptop computer and the fact that I can be working on a book and be in an airport lounge, in a hotel room, and continue working; I fire up my laptop, and I'm in exactly the same place I was when I left home - that, to me, is a miracle.
I don't like to be alone, but I do cherish the moments that I'm alone with a good book.
My mother's family is Christian: her father was a Baptist lay preacher, and her brother, in a leap of Anglican upward mobility, became a vicar in the Church of Wales. But my mother converted to Islam on marrying my father. She was not obliged to; Muslim men are free to marry ahl al-kitab, or people of the Book - among them, Jews and Christians.
Shereen El Feki
The script is the coloring book that you're given, and your job is to figure out how to color it in. And also when and where to color outside the lines.
'Orphan Black' allows for people to have debates and theories and allegiances to different characters - to trust characters and hate other characters - but it doesn't tell you who is good or bad or right or wrong. That's the most exciting storytelling, in my book.
Throughout the ages, Christians have adapted John of Patmos's visions to changing times, reading their own social, political and religious conflicts into the cosmic war he so powerfully evokes. Yet his Book of Revelation appeals not only to fear and desires for vengeance but also to hope.
My writing has to support more than my research habit, but I love to curl up with a book about some dusty corner of history.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
