"The best moments in reading are when you come across something - a thought, a feeling, a way of looking at things - which you had thought special and particular to you.

- Alan Bennett

"Someday you will be old enough to start reading fairy tales again."

- C.S. Lewis

"I haven't any right to criticize books, and I don't do it except when I hate them. I often want to criticize Jane Austen, but her books madden me so that I can't conceal my frenzy from the reader; and therefore I have to stop every time I begin. Every time I read Pride and Prejudice I want to dig her up and beat her over the skull with her own shin-bone. (Letter to Joseph Twichell, 9/13/1898)

- Mark Twain

"There is no such thing as a child who hates to read; there are only children who have not found the right book."

- Frank Serafini
