“What a miracle it is that out of these small, flat, rigid squares of paper unfolds world after world after world, worlds that sing to you, comfort and quiet or excite you. Books help us understand who we are and how we are to behave” – Anne Lamott
They say that reading is dreaming with eyes wide open, as a lover of books, I find this to be exceptionally true. Books have a way of transporting us to another realm free of limitations. Regardless of the genre, a great book has the magical ability to simultaenously sharpen our imagination, ignites our passion and opens our eyes to a boundless horizon where anything is possible.
Having been a book lover since childhood, it never ceases to amaze me how words strewn so eloquently on paper can speak so us so loudly – demanding for us to take it to heart and to live our lives by them. With that, here is a collection of words of wisdom from some of my favorite literary masterpieces that seek to inspire us – to cast our fear and doubts aside in order to courageously live out our very best lives. Enjoy!
