„Ausonius must be read to be believed! As poet, no subject is too trivial for him; as courtier, no flattery too excessive.“

—  Decimus Magnus Ausonius, Criticism, Gore Vidal, Julian (1964), p. 11.

„I had no distance or detachment from what I read: it seemed too real to me, too possible.“

—  Elizabeth Hand American writer 1957
Apocalypse Descending (2002), Context: I was about ten when I first read 1984 and Lord of the Flies, both of which absolutely terrified me — especially 1984, because I figured out that Julia, Winston Smith's lover, would have been born the same year I was. I knew these books were fiction, but I was far too young to have a grasp on the political or cultural realities behind them — I had no distance or detachment from what I read: it seemed too real to me, too possible.

„That one story taught me how to read and write because I looked at the picture of that beautiful beast, but I so desperately wanted to read about him too.“

—  Ray Bradbury American writer 1920 - 2012
The Paris Review interview (2010), Context: Our education system has gone to hell. It’s my idea from now on to stop spending money educating children who are sixteen years old. We should put all that money down into kindergarten. Young children have to be taught how to read and write. If children went into the first grade knowing how to read and write, we’d be set for the future, wouldn’t we? We must not let them go into the fourth and fifth grades not knowing how to read. So we must put out books with educational pictures, or use comics to teach children how to read. When I was five years old, my aunt gave me a copy of a book of wonderful fairy tales called Once Upon a Time, and the first fairy tale in the book is “Beauty and the Beast.” That one story taught me how to read and write because I looked at the picture of that beautiful beast, but I so desperately wanted to read about him too.

„Much reading after a certain age diverts the mind from its creative pursuits. Any man who reads too much and uses his own brain too little falls into lazy habits of thinking,“

—  Albert Einstein German-born physicist and founder of the theory of relativity 1879 - 1955
1930s, Wisehart interview (1930), Context: Much reading after a certain age diverts the mind from its creative pursuits. Any man who reads too much and uses his own brain too little falls into lazy habits of thinking, just as the man who spends too much time in the theaters is apt to be content with living vicariously instead of living his own life.
