A tablet replacing an exercise book is not innovation, it's just a different way to make notes.
I still believe that sitting down and reading a book is the best way to really learn something.
I don't like to be alone, but I do cherish the moments that I'm alone with a good book.
If you've been married for 400 years, as I have, it's nice to experience first love again and you can vicariously through a book.
E. L. James
Other writers definitely influence my writing. What encourages me and inspires me is when I read a good book. It makes me want to be a better writer.
Kimberly Willis Holt
A book is kind of like a river; I simply jump in and start swimming.
I want to write so well that a person is 30 or 40 pages in a book of mine... before she realizes she's reading.
Real education should consist of drawing the goodness and the best out of our own students. What better books can there be than the book of humanity?
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
I never learned anything at all in school and didn't read a book for pleasure until I was 19 years old.
What are we promoting in society? Well-behaved automatons that spew back what they learned in a book. That's not science. You can get a parrot to do that.
Neil deGrasse Tyson
My idea of a delicious time is to read a book that is wonderful. But the ruling passion of my life is being a seeker after truth and the divine.
Sometimes when I think how good my book can be, I can hardly breathe.
I'll agonize over sentences. Mostly because you're trying to create specific effects with sentences, and because there are a number of different voices in the book.
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.
Having your book turned into a movie is like seeing your oxen turned into bouillon cubes.
John le Carre
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.
I try to make the readers feel they've lived the events of the book. Just as you grieve if a friend is killed, you should grieve if a fictional character is killed. You should care. If somebody dies and you just go get more popcorn, it's a superficial experience isn't it?
George R. R. Martin
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.
When I got large enough to go to work, while employed I was reflecting on many things that would present themselves to my imagination; and whenever an opportunity occurred of looking at a book, when the school-children were getting their lessons, I would find many things that the fertility of my own imagination had depicted to me before.
I'm a big illustration and comic book fan. In my eyes, comic books and illustration are the same kind of art forms.
'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.
There is no way that the Fourth Gospel was written by John Zebedee or by any of the disciples of Jesus. The author of this book is not a single individual, but is at least three different writers/editors, who did their layered work over a period of 25 to 30 years.
John Shelby Spong
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.
William Arthur Ward
Martin Luther King, Jr.

It is not to be expected that human nature will change in a day.
Frank B. Kellogg
