Poetry is the spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings: it takes its origin from emotion recollected in tranquility.
- William Wordworth, Preface to Lyrical Ballads

A writer's heart, a poet's heart, an artist's heart, a musician's heart is always breaking. It is through that broken window that we see the world.
- Alice Walker, The Cushion in the Road

A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies. The one who never reads lives only once.
- George R. R. Martin
