Weird people follow you in the streets, you can't sit alone in a restaurant or a cafe and read a book in peace, and I think everybody values those moments of being alone.
You that would judge me, do not judge alone this book or that, come to this hallowed place where my friends' portraits hang and look thereon; Ireland's history in their lineaments trace; think where man's glory most begins and ends and say my glory was I had such friends.
William Butler Yeats
My philosophy is that I'm an artist. I perform an art not with a paint brush or a camera. I perform with bodily movement. Instead of exhibiting my art in a museum or a book or on canvas, I exhibit my art in front of the multitudes.
There is no friend as loyal as a book.
I would say I'm an inspirational guidelines book. You can take my life story or scenarios or songs and relate to them and apply them to your everyday life.
Any book that helps a child to form a habit of reading, to make reading one of his deep and continuing needs, is good for him.
If one cannot enjoy reading a book over and over again, there is no use in reading it at all.
Religious fanatics want people to switch off their own minds, ignore the evidence, and blindly follow a holy book based upon private 'revelation'.
Each has his past shut in him like the leaves of a book known to him by his heart, and his friends can only read the title.
There is a great deal of difference between an eager man who wants to read a book and the tired man who wants a book to read.
Gilbert K. Chesterton
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 2008, while the film version of my book 'Choke' was coming to market, my mother was diagnosed with lung cancer.

My parents didn't know much science; in fact, they didn't know science at all. But they could recognize a science book when they saw it, and they spent a lot of time at bookstores, combing the remainder tables for science books to buy for me. I had one of the biggest libraries of any kid in school, built on books that cost 50 cents or a dollar.
Neil deGrasse Tyson

My book has a very simple surface, but there are layers of irony and paradox all the way through it.
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.
Marriage - a book of which the first chapter is written in poetry and the remaining chapters in prose.
Reading is a joy for my kids, and to swing in a hammock on a lazy summer day reading a good book just goes with summer.
Marcia Gay Harden
Sometimes if I can't sleep and I am up in the night, I will start researching things - it could be an image I've seen, or a book I am reading.

C. S. Lewis
