„Туфли на высоком каблуке придумала женщина, которую целовали только в лоб.“

„Жизнь как чужой язык: все говорят с акцентом.“


„Нам не повезло с нашими детьми – они выросли.“

„Успех означает лишь одно – суметь прожить свою жизнь, как это суждено тебе одному.“

„There is no mistaking a real book when one meets it. It is like falling in love.“ Pipefuls

„Read, every day, something no one else is reading. Think, every day, something no one else is thinking. Do, every day, something no one else would be silly enough to do. It is bad for the mind to be always part of unanimity.“

„When you sell a man a book you don't sell just twelve ounces of paper and ink and glue - you sell him a whole new life. Love and friendship and humour and ships at sea by night - there's all heaven and earth in a book, a real book.“

„If we discovered that we had only five minutes left to say all that we wanted to say, every telephone booth would be occupied by people calling other people to stammer that they loved them.“


„No man is lonely while eating spaghetti:
it requires so much attention.“

„There is only one success-to be able to spend life in your own way.“

„All cities are mad: but the madness is gallant. All cities are beautiful, but the beauty is grim.“

„High heels were invented by a woman who had been kissed on the forehead.“


„That's what this country needs -- more books!“

„Printer's ink has been running a race against gunpowder these many, many years. Ink is handicapped, in a way, because you can blow up a man with gunpowder in half a second, while it may take twenty years to blow him up with a book. But the gunpowder destroys itself along with its victim, while a book can keep on exploding for centuries.“ The Haunted Bookshop

„The real purpose of books is to trap the mind into doing its own thinking.“

„The courage of the poet is to keep ajar the door that leads into madness.“
