Maybe you don't know what Picture This is...so I will explain.
Picture This is a collection of pictures you've stumbles upon during the week and really enjoyed, all crammed into one cute little post. So therefore this post is the same thing...but with quotes...instead of pictures.
Here is one I found today and I find it hilarious. Sorry to all you book partialists out there...but Jane said it..not me.
“The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel, must be intolerably stupid.”
― Jane Austen
I love her sass! :)
“Classic' - a book which people praise and don't read.”
― Mark Twain
hmmm...Mark of all people to say it...makes me love it even more. Someone should show this to my mom....or past teachers.
“There is no friend as loyal as a book.”
― Ernest Hemingway
This is 110% true. No matter how many times you read it it doesn't change....and whenever something I can't handle comes to me, I read. I don't know the kind of person I would be without books. Probably bitter and grumpy. Which brings me to another quote.
When I am attacked by gloomy thoughts, nothing helps me so much as running to my books. They quickly absorb me and banish the clouds from my mind.— Michel de Montaigne
Yes. This is what I mean.
“What really knocks me out is a book that, when you're all done reading it, you wish the author that wrote it was a terrific friend of yours and you could call him up on the phone whenever you felt like it. That doesn't happen much, though.”
― J.D. Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye
How much do I love these people? So so so much...who could get it more right than those just like you. As I refer to it your "brand of people" I could not live without them....as I've only recently discovered that such people exist. Where have you been all my life? I honestly don't know how I missed it.
“I declare after all there is no enjoyment like reading! How much sooner one tires of any thing than of a book! -- When I have a house of my own, I shall be miserable if I have not an excellent library.”
― Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice
I would be clearly miserable.
