Quotes …

My very good friend Liz and I collect quotes, poems and the like.  Some to boost us when we are blue, some to make us laugh and some to inspire us.

I’m going to paste the odd one or two here when they strike me as being especially good!

Here are a couple to start with:

“A book must be the ax for the frozen sea within us.”

Franz Kafka

“All that mankind has done, thought, gained, or been; it is lying as in magic preservation in the pages of books.”

Thomas Carlyle

“When you read a classic you do not see in the book more than you did before. You see more in you than there was before.”

Clifton Fadiman

“I must say that I find television very educational. The minute somebody turns it on, I go to the library and read a book.”

Groucho Marx
