The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt

Caring too much for objects can destroy you. Only—if you care for a thing enough, it takes on a life of its own, doesn’t it? And isn’t the whole point of things—beautiful things—that they connect you to some larger beauty?

The Prince and the Pauper by Mark Twain

When I am king they shall not have bread and shelter only, but also teachings out of books, for a full belly is little worth where the mind is starved.

The Name of the Rose by Umberto Eco

Show not what has been done, but what can be. How beautiful the world would be if there were a procedure for moving through labyrinths.

The Time Between by Karen White

Time is a funny thing. It can take some people a whole lifetime before they realize they’ve been playing tug-of-war all by themselves.

The Time Between by Karen White

The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern

You may tell a tale that takes up residence in someone’s soul, becomes their blood and self and purpose. That tale will move them and drive them and who knows that they might do because of it, because of your words. That is your role, your gift.

A Prayer for Owen Meany by John Irving

If you care about something you have to protect it – If you’re lucky enough to find a way of life you love, you have to find the courage to live it.

A Prayer for Owen Meany by John Irving

The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand

I regret nothing. There have been things I missed, but I ask no questions, because I have loved it, such as it has been, even the moments of emptiness, even the unanswered-and that I loved it, that is the unanswered in my life.

The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand

The Rime of the Ancient Mariner by Samuel Taylor Coleridge

Swiftly, swiftly flew the ship,
Yet she sailed softly too:
Sweetly, sweetly blew the breeze -
On me alone it blew.
The Rime of the Ancient Mariner by Samuel Taylor Coleridge

Siddhartha by Hermann Hesse

Wisdom cannot be imparted. Wisdom that a wise man attempts to impart always sounds like foolishness to someone else … Knowledge can be communicated, but not wisdom. One can find it, live it, do wonders through it, but one cannot communicate and teach it.

Siddhartha by Hermann Hesse
