"I believe that books can bring you back to life. When everything seems hopeless and lost in your world, you can open a book and enter a story that can make your heart sigh with love once again."
"Ralph Waldo Emerson once asked what we would do if the stars only came out once every thousand years. No one would sleep that night, of course. The world would create new religions overnight. We would be ecstatic, delirious, made rapturous by the glory of God. Instead, the stars come out every night and we watch television."
