“Imagination is what you do with your inspiration.”

– Violet Haberdasher

“Sometimes I think books are the only friends worth having.”

“Books are the most wonderful friends in the world. When you meet them and pick them up, they are always ready to give you a few ideas. When you put them down, they never get mad; when you take them up again, they seem to enrich you all the more.”

– Fulton J. Sheen, Life Is Worth Living

“ooks must be treated with respect, we feel that in our bones, because words have power. Bring enough words together they can bend space and time.”

– Elif Shafak
