Mid Week Quote: Stephen King

Hello!

I hope everyone is well and safe. I have been slogging away on my two essays and will be handing them in later today, fingers crossed I will have done ok. After hand in I will be rewarding myself with some serious reading.

This week’s quote is by Stephen King who is a huge reader and owns a massive library of his own. I must admit I am quite jealous of the sheer amount of books he supposedly owns. I love this quote and think it is very apt for our current situation.

 

“Books are the perfect entertainment: no commercials, no batteries, hours of enjoyment for each dollar spent.”

 

Stephen King (2007)

 

Happy Wednesday.

Happy reading and stay safe everyone.

Mid Week Quote: Isaac Newton

Hello!

I hope this post finds everyone well and safe. I must admit I am finding it very strange not working. I am reading more and studying so I am trying to fill my days productively.

So here is my chosen quote but I will just mention that this quote is only attributed to Isaac Newton.

 

“Tact is the art of making a point without making an enemy.”

 

Isaac Newton (c. 1650)

 

Happy reading and stay safe everyone.

Mid Week Quote: Omar Khayyam

Happy Wednesday!

I have been enjoying the bits of sunshine we have been having and am looking forward to the lighter evenings. I have especially been enjoying going for a walk and seeing the little lambs skipping around.

Anyway here is my quote.

 

“When I want to understand what is happening today or try to decide what will happen tomorrow, I look back.”

 

Omar Khayyám

 

Happy reading.

Mid Week Quote: F. Scott Fitzgerald

Hello!

I can not believe it is Wednesday already. Is anybody doing anything for Lent? I’m eating smaller portions, giving up chocolate and aiming to do at least 10 minutes of Organ practice a day. Think the chocolate one will be the hardest for me.

Anyway, back to the quote. This quote is attributed to the great F. Scott Fitzgerald.

 

“That is part of the beauty of all literature. You discover that your longings are universal longings, that you’re not lonely and isolated from anyone.”

 

F. Scott Fitzgerald (1938)

 

Happy reading!
