Forgive me if that sounds confusing. I guess what I mean is, it's sometimes hard to image what a writer is actually like beyond pages and pages of carefully crafted words. It's even more difficult to get a glimpse at who they really are.
Luckily for bookworms like me, there is documentation of very excellent book-related quotes from some of history's greatest which I believe get to the root of who their speakers were as people. Here are a few of my favorites I would like to share with you:
"You can't get a cup of tea big enough or a book long enough to suit me,"
"If we encounter a man of rare intellect, we should ask him what books he reads,"
"A house without books is like a room without windows,"
"You're never too old, too wacky, too wild, to pick up a book and read to a child,"
