I’m collecting quotes about writing and books so that when I finally have my library together I’ll stencil the quotes on the walls. Here are some of my faves.
“Writing is like the heart of a glacier, it’s one eternal grind.” ~ John Muir
“If I have a little money I buy books; and if any is left, I buy food and clothes.” – Erasmus
“I hate writing; I love having written.” – Dorothy Parker
“If there’s a book you really want to read but it hasn’t been written yet, then you must write it.” ~Toni Morrison
“To acquire the habit of reading is to construct for yourself a refuge from almost all the miseries of life.” ~W. Somerset Maugham
Can you believe this is a photo of somebody’s personal library? Mine won’t be nearly this cool (After all, dude’s got Sputnik up in there), but I definitely intend for it to be the centerpiece of my home. (Aside for the kitchen, of course.)
