Some people claim that it is okay to read trashy novels because sometimes you can find something valuable in them. You can also find a crust of bread in a garbage can, if you search long enough, but there is a better way.

Jim Rohn

I was the shyest human ever invented, but I had a lion inside me that wouldn`t shut up! Read more at.

Ingrid Bergman

Don`t blindly believe what I say. Don`t believe me because others convince you of my words. Don`t believe anything you see, read, or hear from others, whether of authority, religious teachers or texts. Don`t rely on logic alone, nor speculation. Don`t infer or be deceived by appearances. Do not give up your authority and follow blindly the will of others. This way will lead to only delusion. Discover for yourself what is truth, what is real.

Buddha

Alexandre Dumas

No one who can read, ever looks at a book, even unopened on a shelf, like one who cannot.

Charles Dickens

When I read commentary about suggestions for where C should go, I often think back and give thanks that it wasn`t developed under the advice of a worldwide crowd.

Dennis MacAlistair Ritchie

"Classic." A book which people praise and don`t read.

Mark Twain

Do not read, as children do, to amuse yourself, or like the ambitious, for the purpose of instruction. No, read in order to live.

Gustave Flaubert

The only way you can write the truth is to assume that what you set down will never be read. Not by any other person, and not even by yourself at some later date. Otherwise you begin excusing yourself. You must see the writing as emerging like a long scroll of ink from the index finger of your right hand; you must see your left hand erasing it.

Margaret Atwood
