About my libraryQUOTE BY DAVID BOWIE

On what he inherited from his father that inspired him to write:

"I think if I inherited anything from him at all, it was probably a love of books. He was an avid reader and ... and that was one thing I think probably that did more for me than anything else I've ever applied myself to in life in that I became a voracious reader. To this day, it still gives me the most extraordinary pleasure. I can't ... I couldn't possibly tell you how fantastic it is to just become fully involved in the thinking and the ideas and the location of somebody else's mind. I mean ... I guess that's why I want to write you know."

~ David Bowie (Musical Storyland, Picasso in Contemporary Art: Diechtorhallen, Hamburg, Moonage Daydream: The Life & Times of Ziggy Stardust, music lyrics for his own songs and songs sung by other musicians)


On imagination:

"We do not need magic to change the world. We carry all the power we need inside ourselves already. We have the power to imagine better."


~ J. K. Rowling (Harry Potter series)


“There is something about words. In expert hands, manipulated deftly, they take you prisoner. Wind themselves around your limbs like spider silk, and when you are so enthralled you cannot move, they pierce your skin, enter your blood, numb your thoughts. Inside you they work their magic.”

~ Diane Setterfield (The Thirteenth Tale; Bellman and Black)
