A Quick Quote

Something else you should know about me is that I have an obsession with quotes. A big one. Like, 24/7.

Books are my main source for the quotes that make up my little bubble of a dreamland, and most of these quotes are about travelling and freedom. Again, very tumblrish, I know, but still. You like what you like I guess.

Here is a small selection of quotes for all you avid bookworms. And since I want this to be a communal effort, if there is a quote you like that is not in this list, feel free to leave it in the comments down below. If it’s good, I’ll add it at the end.

“Not all those who wonder are lost”

J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

“The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.”

Augustine of Hippo

“I read; I travel; I become.”

Derek Walcott

“Some birds are not meant to be caged, that’s all. Their feathers are too bright, their songs too sweet and wild. So you let them go, or when you open the cage to feed them they somehow fly out past you. And the part of you that knows it was wrong to imprison them in the first place rejoices, but still, the place where you live is that much more drab and empty for their departure.”

Stephen King, Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption: A Story from Different Seasons
