"Maybe our favorite quotations say more about us than about the stories and people we're quoting." -John Green

I tramp a perpetual journey...
I bequeath myself to the dirt to grow from the grass I love,
If you want me again look for me under your boot-soles.
-Walt Whitman(song of myself)

"The most important things are the hardest to say. They are the things you get ashamed of, because words diminish them -- words shrink things that seemed limitless when they were in your head to no more than living size when they're brought out. But it's more than that, isn't it? The most important things lie too close to wherever your secret heart is buried, like landmarks to a treasure your enemies would love to steal away. And you may make revelations that cost you dearly only to have people look at you in a funny way, not understanding what you've said at all, or why you thought it was so important that you almost cried while you were saying it. That's the worst, I think. When the secret stays locked within not for want of a tellar but for want of an understanding ear."
— Stephen King

"An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind."
— Mahatma Gandhi

"There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed."
-Ernest Hemingway

"A Room without books is as a body without soul"

“I know that you believe you understand what you think I said, but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.”
- Robert McCloskey

"And the people under the sky were also very much the same…everywhere, all over the world, hundreds or thousands of millions of people just like this, people ignorant of one another’s existence, held apart by walls of hatred and lies, and yet almost exactly the same — people who had never learned to think but were storing up in their hearts and bellies and muscles the power that would one day overturn the world."
-George Orwell, 1984

"Only enemies speak the truth; friends and lovers lie endlessly, caught in the web of duty."
-Stephen King

"Some of the greatest battles will be fought within the silent chambers of your own soul."
-Ezra Taft Benson

"But I'll tell you what hermits realize. If you go off into a far, far forest and get very quiet, you'll come to understand that you're connected with everything."
-Alan Watts

"A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies. The person who never reads lives only one."
-George RR Martin
