Life is what you make it will your story have a peak, a conflict, suspence, action, a climax, and a conclusion? Or will you live your life keeping it safe and never taking any risks?  Ask yourself: if your life story were written, would you read it?

A Quote by Franz Kafka on book, read, reading, and incite

"I think we ought to read only books that bite and sting us.  If the book does not shake us awake like a blow to the skull, why bother reading it in the first place?"

Franz Kafka (1883 - 1924)

A Quote by Christopher Darlington Morley on unanimity, read, think, do, silly, and self

Read, every day, something no one else is reading. Think, every day, something no one else is thinking. Do, every day, something no one else would be silly enough to do. It is bad for the mind to be always part of unanimity.

Christopher Morley (1890 - 1957)

A Quote by Gaston Bachelard on writing, language, reality, book, object, vision, and read

Written language must be considered as a particular psychic reality. The book is permanent; it is an object in your field of vision. It speaks to you with a monotonous authority which even its author would not have. You are fairly obliged to read what is written.

Gaston Bachelard (1884 - 1962)
