"You cannot fully read a book without being alone. But through this very solitude you become intimately involved with people whom you might never have met otherwise, either because they have been dead for centuries or because they spoke languages you cannot understand. And nonetheless, they have become your closest friends, your wisest advisers, the wizards that hypnotize you, the lovers you have always dreamed of."
~Antonio Munoz Molinas, "The Power of the Pen"
"Perhaps all of us belong in more than one story"
~Dustfinger in Cornelia Funke's Inkdeath
"Employ your time in improving yourself by other men's writings, so that you shall gain easily what others have labored hard for."
