“There is something delicious about writing the first words of a story. You never quite know where they’ll take you.

-Beatrix Potter

 

“You cannot pretend to read a book. Your eyes will give you away. So will your breathing. A person entranced by a book simply forgets to breathe. The house can catch alight and a reader deep in a book will not look up until the wallpaper is in flames.”

-Lloyd Jones
