While most of the time the feeling after reading an entire novel inspires me, many times there are quotes that stand out and mean much more to me. Below are my top ten inspiring quotes from books.
“Do you understand now why books are hated and feared? Because they reveal the pores on the face of life. The comfortable people want only the faces of the full moon, wax, faces without pores, hairless, expressionless.”― Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451
“Books were only one type of receptacle where we stored a lot of things we were afraid we might forget. There is nothing magical in them at all. The magic is only in what books say, how they stitched the patches of the Universe together into one garment for us.”― Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451
“Truly Alice, books are wonderful things; to sit alone in a room and laugh and cry, because you are reading, and still be safe when you close the book; and having finished it, discover you are changed, yet unchanged! To be able to visit the City of Invention at will, depart at will – that is all, really, education is about, should be about.”― Fay Weldon, Letters to Alice on First Reading Jane Austen
“Love isn’t about what we did yesterday; it’s about what we do today and tomorrow and the day after”― Grace Lee Boggs, The Next American Revolution: Sustainable Activism for the Twenty-First Century
