Bridge | Reading

via Daily Prompt: Bridge

Reading is, for many people, a way of escape. It’s a bridge that we can cross into a fictional world whenever we feel the need or want to. And I think that that’s a comfort.

There are so many quotes by so many authors about the wonder of reading and I thought that I’d share a few of my favorites today.

“A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies…  The man who never reads lives only one.” -George R.R. Martin in A Dance With Dragons

“We read to know we’re not alone.”
― William Nicholson in Shadowlands

“If one cannot enjoy reading a book over and over again, there is no use in reading it at all.”
― Oscar Wilde

And because I love Oscar Wilde, here’s another one from him:

“It is what you read when you don’t have to that determines what you will be when you can’t help it.”
― Oscar Wilde

What are your favorite quotes about books and reading?
