Top Ten Tuesday: You Can Quote Them on That

It's Top Ten Tuesday time again and today's topic is a fun one:  Top Ten Quotes for Book Lovers.  I love me a great bookish quote.  I even have a pretty journal where I record them so I won't forget them.  True, I'm not always good about jotting quotes down, so I'm going to be relying heavily on Google today.  Nevertheless, I'm excited to read everyone's favorite quotes and see whether ours overlap at all.

If you're not aware, Top Ten Tuesday is hosted every week by the lovely Jana over at That Artsy Reader Girl.  To join in, all you have to do is click on over to her blog, read a few instructions, craft your own list, then hop around the book blogosphere spreading the bookish love.  It's a good time, I promise!

Top Ten Quotes for Book Lovers 

George R.R. Martin:  "A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies.  The man who never reads lives only one."

Emily Dickinson:  "There is no frigate like a book to take us lands away."

Anna Quindlen "I would be content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves."

Helen Exley:  "Books can be dangerous.  The best ones should be labeled 'This could change your life.'"

W. Somerset Maugham:  "To acquire the habit of reading is to construct for yourself a refuge from almost all the miseries of life."

E.M. Forster:  "Some people pride themselves in the books they own ... but one never owns a book by buying it.  One buys merely paper and thread and printer's ink.  The only way to own a book is to read it and let it digest into the blood of one's heart and the marrow of one's bones or even the cells of one's brain."

Kate DiCamillo (from The Tale of Despereaux):  "'Once upon a time,' he said out loud to the darkness.  He said these words because they were the best, the most powerful words that he knew and just the saying of them comforted him."

Maureen Johnson (from Truly Devious):  "Where her books were, she was."

Gordon B. Hinckley:  "There is something wonderful about a book.  We can pick it up.  We can heft it.  We can read it.  We can set it down.  We can think of what we have read.  It does something for us.  We can share minds, great actions, and great undertakings in the pages of a book."

Alan Bennett (from The Uncommon Reader):  "'I would have thought,' said the prime minister, 'that Your Majesty was above literature.'

'Above literature?' said the Queen.  'Who is above literature?  You might as well say one is above humanity.'"

And a bonus:

Gabrielle Zevin (from The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry):  "People tell boring lies about politics, God, and love.  You know everything you need to know about a person from the answer to the question, What is your favorite book?"

What do you think of my selections?  What are your favorite bookish quotes?  I'd truly love to know.  Leave a comment on this post and I will return the favor on your blog.

Happy TTT!
