"I would rather be my own tyrant than have someone else tyrannize me."

“I love quotations because it is a joy to find thoughts one might have, beautifully expressed with much authority by someone recognized wiser than oneself”. –Marlene Dietrich
"Every person has two educations, one which he receives from others and one, more important, which he gives to himself."
"To forgive and forget means to throw away dearly bought experience. "
" A book should be an axe to break the frozen sea within us."
"Books give delight to the very marrow of one’s bones. They speak to us, consult with us and join with us in a living and intense intimacy."
