1. Let us read, and let us dance; these two amusements will never do any harm to the world.

Then write. If it's good, you'll find out. If it's not, throw it out of the window. 
- William Faulkner

3. A good book is an event in my life.

- Joseph Brodsky

 16. We read to know we're not alone. 
- William Nicholson

17. The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go. 
- Dr. Seuss

18. I find television very educating. Every time somebody turns on the set, I go into the other room and read a book. 
- Groucho Marx

19. What really knocks me out is a book that, when you're all done reading it, you wish the author that wrote it was a terrific friend of yours and you could call him up on the phone whenever you felt like it. That doesn't happen much, though. 
- J.D. Salinger

20. Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counselors, and the most patient of teachers. 
- Charles William Eliot

21. Do not read, as children do, to amuse yourself, or like the ambitious, for the purpose of instruction. No, read in order to live. 
- Gustave Flaubert

22. Let's be reasonable and add an eighth day to the week that is devoted exclusively to reading. 
- Lena Dunham

23. When I got [my] library card, that was when my life began.

28. Children are made readers on the laps of their parents. 
- Emilie Buchwald

29. Anyway—because we are readers, we don't have to wait for some communications executive to decide what we should think about next—and how we should think about it. We can fill our heads with anything from aardvarks to zucchinis—at any time of night or day. 
- Kurt Vonnegut

30. Books are good company, in sad times and happy times, for books are people - people who have managed to stay alive by hiding between the covers of a book.
- E.B. White

31. Literature is my Utopia.
- Helen Keller

32. Censorship ends in logical completeness when nobody is allowed to read any books except the books that nobody can read.
- George Bernard Shaw

33. We shouldn't teach great books; we should teach a love of reading. Knowing the contents of a few works of literature is a trivial achievement. Being inclined to go on reading is a great achievement. 
- B.F. Skinner

34. A lot of the people who read a bestselling novel, for example, do not read much other fiction. By contrast, the audience for an obscure novel is largely composed of people who read a lot. That means the least popular books are judged by people who have the highest standards, while the most popular are judged by people who literally do not know any better. An American who read just one book this year was disproportionately likely to have read ‘The Lost Symbol’, by Dan Brown. He almost certainly liked it. 
- The Economist

35. Reading nurtures the soul, and an enlightened friend brings it solace.  
- Voltaire
