Reading some quotations about reading


“I go back to the reading room, where I sink down in the sofa and into the world of The Arabian Nights. Slowly, like a movie fadeout, the real world evaporates. I'm alone, inside the world of the story. My favourite feeling in the world.” ― Haruki Murakami, Kafka on the Shore

“When I get a little money, I buy books. If any is left, I buy food and clothes.” — Erasmus

“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

“Read the best books first, or you may not have a chance to read them at all.” — Henry David Thoreau

“No matter how busy you may think you are, you must find time for reading, or surrender yourself to self-chosen ignorance.” — Confucius

“I have always imagined that Paradise will be a kind of library.” — Jorge Luis Borges
