Quote: If you take a book on a journey…Inkheart, Cornelia Funke

“If you take a book with you on a journey," Mo had said when he put the first one in her box, "an odd thing happens: The book begins collecting your memories. And forever after you have only to open that book to be back where you first read it. It will all come into your mind with the very first words: the sights you saw in that place, what it smelled like, the ice cream you ate while you were reading it... yes, books are like flypaper—memories cling to the printed page better than anything else.” ― Cornelia Funke, Inkheart

Quote: Nora Ephron, Reading is escape, and the opposite of escape…

“Reading is escape, and the opposite of escape; it's a way to make contact with reality after a day of making things up, and it's a way of making contact with someone else's imagination after a day that's all too real.” ― Nora Ephron

Quote: C. S. Lewis on Fairytales

Quote: C. S. Lewis on Fairytales

WHEN I WAS TEN, I READ FAIRY TALES IN SECRET AND WOULD HAVE BEEN ASHAMED IF I HAD BEEN FOUND DOING SO. NOW THAT I AM FIFTY, I READ THEM OPENLY. WHEN I BECAME A MAN I PUT AWAY CHILDISH THINGS, INCLUDING THE FEAR OF CHILDISHNESS AND THE DESIRE TO BE VERY GROWN UP.
