Personal Quote:

It’s just that I learned a while ago that the best way to get people to like you is not to like them too much.
What a treacherous thing to believe that a person is more than a person.
It is so hard to leave—until you leave. And then it is the easiest goddamned thing in the world.

Sometimes, you read a book and it fills you with this weird evangelical zeal, and you become convinced that the shattered world will never be put back together unless and until all living humans read the book.

A little nonsense now and then, is cherished by the wisest men.

Matilda

The books transported her into new worlds and introduced her to amazing people who lived exciting lives. She went on olden-day sailing ships with Joseph Conrad. She went to Africa with Ernest Hemingway and to India with Rudyard Kipling. She travelled all over the world while sitting in her little room in an English village.

Personal Quote:

Monsters are real, and ghosts are real too. They live inside us, and sometimes, they win.
Fiction is the truth inside the lie.
We make up horrors to help us cope with the real ones.

Excerpt:

The Shining

The world’s a hard place, Danny. It don’t care. It don’t hate you and me, but it don’t love us, either. Terrible things happen in the world, and they’re things no one can explain. Good people die in bad, painful ways and leave the folks that love them all alone. Sometimes it seems like it’s only the bad people who stay healthy and prosper. The world don’t love you, but your momma does and so do I.

Personal Quote:

Every time I see an adult on a bicycle, I no longer despair for the future of the human race.

Moral indignation is jealousy with a halo.

If you fell down yesterday, stand up today.

Excerpt:

The Time Machine

We should strive to welcome change and challenges, because they are what help us grow. With out them we grow weak like the Eloi in comfort and security. We need to constantly be challenging ourselves in order to strengthen our character and increase our intelligence.

Personal Quote:

Making my class laugh and getting in trouble. I was the class clown.

When I was a kid, there were these great comic books called ‘Tales From The Crypt’ and ‘The Vault of Horror.’ They were gruesome. I discovered them in the barbershop and thought they were fabulous.

Read. Read. Read. Just don’t read one type of book. Read different books by various authors so that you develop different styles.

Excerpt:

Welcome to Dead House

This was a normal town once, and we were normal people. Most of us worked at the plastics factory on the outskirts of town. Then one day there was an accident… something escaped from the factory, a yellow gas. It floated over the town so fast that we didn’t see it, didn’t realize… and then it was too late, and Dark Falls wasn’t a normal town anymore.

Personal Quote:

We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.
Be yourself; everyone else is already taken
To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all.

Excerpt:

The Picture of Dorian Gray

Those who find ugly meanings in beautiful things are corrupt without being charming. This is a fault. Those who find beautiful meanings in beautiful things are the cultivated. For these there is hope. They are the elect to whom beautiful things mean only Beauty. There is no such thing as a moral or an immoral book. Books are well written, or badly written. That is all.

Moon: 12° 11′ Scorpio MC:

Personal Quote:

Tell me I’m clever, Tell me I’m kind, Tell me I’m talented, Tell me I’m cute, Tell me I’m sensitive, Graceful and wise, Tell me I’m perfect – But tell me the truth.
He has the obligation to society that any human being has. I don’t think a satirist has any greater obligation to society than a bricklayer or anybody else.
If the track is tough and the hill is rough, THINKING you can just ain’t enough!

Excerpt:

The Giving Tree

Once there was a tree, and she loved a little boy.

Uranus, Venus, Moon
Houses 8, 9, 5 / Air, Water / Fixed

Personal Quote:

Show me a hero and I will write you a tragedy.
The test of a first-rate intelligence is the ability to hold two opposed ideas in the mind at the same time, and still retain the ability to function.
So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.

Excerpt:

The Great Gatsby

He smiled understandingly-much more than understandingly. It was one of those rare smiles with a quality of eternal reassurance in it, that you may come across four or five times in life. It faced–or seemed to face–the whole eternal world for an instant, and then concentrated on you with an irresistible prejudice in your favor. It understood you just as far as you wanted to be understood, believed in you as you would like to believe in yourself, and assured you that it had precisely the impression of you that, at your best, you hoped to convey.

Uranus, Neptune, Jupiter
Houses 8, 7, 4 / Water, Air / Mutable

Personal Quote:

In the midst of movement and chaos, keep stillness inside of you.
The less you open your heart to others, the more your heart suffers.
The way you think, the way you behave, the way you eat, can influence your life by 30 to 50 years.

Excerpt:

The Book of Secrets: Unlocking the Hidden Dimensions of Your Life

No single decision you ever made has led in a straight line to where you find yourself now. You peeked down some roads and took a few steps before turning back. You followed some roads that came to a dead end and others that got lost at too many intersections. Ultimately, all roads are connected to all other roads.

Personal Quote:

How blessed are some people, whose lives have no fears, no dreads; to whom sleep is a blessing that comes nightly, and brings nothing but sweet dreams.
Despair has its own calms.
No man knows till he has suffered from the night how sweet and dear to his heart and eye the morning can be.

Excerpt:

Dracula, Chapter 2, pg. 28

When the Count saw my face, his eyes blazed with a sort of demonaic fury, and he suddenly made a grab at my throat. I drew away, and his hand touched the string of beads which held the crucifix. It made an instant change in him, for the fury passed so quickly that I could hardly believe that it was ever there.

Personal Quote:

Literature is news that stays news.
Properly, we should read for power. Man reading should be man intensely alive. The book should be a ball of light in one’s hand.
No man understands a deep book until he has seen and lived at least part of its contents.

Excerpt:

A Girl

The tree has entered my hands,
The sap has ascended my arms,
The tree has grown in my breast –
Downward,
The branches grow out of me, like arms.

Dominants: Sagittarius, Gemini, Leo
Saturn, Neptune, Moon

Personal Quote:

I have found a desire within myself that no experience in this world can satisfy; the most probable explanation is that I was made for another world.
Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: What! You too? I thought I was the only one.
You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.

Excerpt:

The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe

I hope no one who reads this book has been quite as miserable as Susan and Lucy were that night; but if you have been – if you’ve been up all night and cried till you have no more tears left in you – you will know that there comes in the end a sort of quietness. You feel as if nothing is ever going to happen again.

Don’t go around saying the world owes you a living. The world owes you nothing. It was here first.
I have never let my schooling interfere with my education.
If you tell the truth, you don’t have to remember anything.

Excerpt:

The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn

Right is right, and wrong is wrong, and a body ain’t got no business doing wrong when he ain’t ignorant and knows better.
