Happy Birthday, Doctor Seuss! As I am sure most of you know today is Read Across America Day. I loved this day as a kid. A day to celebrate books. I carried that love into adulthood and that is why this blog was born. To celebrate today I am going to share a few of my favorite book quotes.
“For how can one know color in perpetual green, and what good is warmth without cold to give it sweetness?” -John Steinbeck, Travels with Charley in Search of America
“East of the sun. West of the moon.” -Katherine Arden, The Bear in the Nightingale
“Because, in another place, I would not be the same person. I am my roots. My vegetables. My leaves and herbs. I know when they bloom, year after year. I know when they die and when they come back to life. For what I have down and nurtured all my life I shall remain to reap.” -Tim Westover, The Winter Sisters
“She was a creature of smoke and stars.”-Katherine Arden, The Girl in the Tower
“Not every flower belongs in every garden.” -Leigh Bardugo, Ninth House
And lastly, a quote from the great Dr. Seuss.
“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.”
