Thoughts for Thursday is a new meme hosted by Musings on Fantasia and LKHill.  In this meme, we 
share thoughts or quotes that we know or have recently come across. Each week there is a specific subject or theme. These can be quotes from books, quotes by famous people, (quotes by YOU, perhaps ;D). Anything from anywhere is game, though we do ask that you keep your quote to a few sentences at most. Don't quote, for example, entire passages of a book or essay. These can be funny quips, cool sayings, hair-raising antidotes, movie lines, any kind of quote you can think of!

Readers may respond by either commenting on the quote I put forward or contributing a quote of their own. I'll include a linky list, or you can just respond in the comments. 
(Didn't do this this week but I'll start linkys up again next week. Just comment and if you want to participate, put a link to your blog in your comment! Thanks! :D)

Just have fun, collect awesome sayings by awesome people, and try to be inspired!   

This week's theme is something we all love and have in common: READING!

"A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies, said Jojen. The man who never reads lives only one." --George R.R. Martin, A Dance with Dragons

"You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me." --C.S. Lewis

"We read to know that we are not alone." --William Nicholson

"Never trust anyone who has not brought a book with them." --Lemony Snicket, Horseradish: Bitter Truths You Can't Avoid

"If you would not be forgotten as soon as you are dead, either write something worth reading or do things worth writing." --Benjamin Franklin

What do YOU think? Which quote do you like most? Do you agree/disagree? Do YOU have a favorite quote about reading?


  1. If the last one is true then I might be in trouble...

    1. LOL. On the one hand: Not True! You write lots of stuff worth reading! I know because I read it. On the other hand: yeah if that's true we might ALL be in trouble! :D

  2. Love: Never trust anyone who has not brought a book with them. Such fun!

    To read without reflecting is like eating without digesting. ~Edmund Burke
