„Četba je pro mysl totéž, jako strava pro tělo.“

„Dobrá kniha je jako svědění, na které nedosáhnete. Nemůžete je prostě nechat na pokoji.“


„Libraries allow children to ask questions about the world and find the answers. And the wonderful thing is that once a child learns to use a library, the doors to learning are always open.“

„The English language lacks the words to mourn an absence. For the loss of a parent, grandparent, spouse, child or friend, we have all manner of words and phrases, some helpful some not. Still we are conditioned to say something, even if it is only “I’m sorry for your loss.” But for an absence, for someone who was never there at all, we are wordless to capture that particular emptiness. For those who deeply want children and are denied them, those missing babies hover like silent ephemeral shadows over their lives. Who can describe the feel of a tiny hand that is never held?“ Spoken from the Heart

„As long as we have books, we are not alone.“

„I turned to books for comfort.
(Former First Lady, Laura Bush)“

Spoken from the Heart

„I Read, I Smoke, I Admire.“


„We must choose between a world of fear and a world of progress. We cannot stand by and do nothing while dangers gather.“ Spoken from the Heart

„Both here and in Russia, he repeatedly chided Putin for cracking down on the press, telling the Russian president that his country had to have a free press, that a free press is essential for a democracy. “You need to have an independent press,” George would tell him. And Putin would invariably reply, “Well, you control your press.” George would shake his head and say, “No, Vladimir, I don’t. I wish sometimes that I could control them, but I can’t. They are free to say whatever they want. In our country, the press is free to write terrible things about me, and I can’t do anything about it.” But Russia is a country without those traditions, and with no memory of them, and many in Russia believed that the U. S. government did control our press. In fact, following a summit meeting, one of the first questions George got from a Russian newsman essentially was, How can you complain to President Putin about the Russian press when you fired Dan Rather?“ Spoken from the Heart
