James Baldwin

“Good friends, good books, and a sleepy conscience: this is the ideal life.”

Mark Twain

“That’s the thing about books. They let you travel without moving your feet.”

Jhumpa Lahiri

“One child, one teacher, one book, one pen can change the world.”

Malala Yousafzai

“It is the storyteller who makes us what we are, who creates history. The storyteller creates the memory that the survivors must have – otherwise their surviving would have no meaning.”
