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.
