I found this post on another blog which is very inspirational and motivates me to no end. I cant wait to start my journey into literature.
My five favourite quotes from the list:
- “We read to know that we are not alone.” — C.S. Lewis
- “We need to make books cool again. If you go home with somebody and they don’t have books, don’t fuck them. Don’t sleep with people who don’t read!” – John Waters
- “Reading brings us unknown friends.” — Honoré de Balzac
- “I cannot remember the books I’ve read any more than the meals I have eaten; even so, they have made me.” — Ralph Waldo Emerson
- “It is what you read when you don’t have to that determines what you will be when you can’t help it.” — Oscar Wilde
