Quotes

I am an avid collector of quotes. I love reading something and have it immediately stand out, immediately connect with me. And I thought that I might share some of my favourites with you all.

Personal

From Cybele’s Secret by Juliet Marillier:

If a man truly loves… he gives no heed to what others may think. His heart has no room for that, for it is filled to the brim with the unutterable truth of his feelings.

From George R.R. Martin:

A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies. The man who never reads lives only one.

From Frankenstein (1994), spoken by the Creature:

I have love in me the likes of which you can scarcely imagine, and rage the likes of which you would not believe.

Study Related

From Edwin Chatwin, about those who study literature and history (my two majors!):

For what was literature after all but the study of idlers who read for amusement, and history but one great field of cram, of reliance on misery, and of dodging?

From Neil Gaiman, on librarians:

Google can bring you back 100,000 answers, a librarian can bring you back the right one.

Do you have any favourite quotes? I’m always interested in finding more!
