Thoughts for Thursday: The Joy of Reading

Thoughts for Thursday is a new feature hosted by Musings on Fantasia and LKHill.  In this meme, we share thoughts or quotes that we know or have recently come across. Each week there is a specific subject or theme. These can be quotes from books, quotes by famous people, (quotes by YOU, perhaps ;D). Anything from anywhere is game, though we do ask that you keep your quote to a few sentences at most. Don't quote, for example, entire passages of a book or essay. These can be funny quips, cool sayings, hair-raising antidotes, movie lines, any kind of quote you can think of!

Just have fun, collect awesome sayings by awesome people, and try to be inspired!

This week's theme is The Joy of Reading (For more quotes, check out my other blog.)

"If one reads enough books one has a fighting chance. Or better, one's chances of survival increase with each book one reads."--Sherman Alexie
"If you would not be forgotten as soon as you are dead, either write something worth reading or do something worth writing."--Benjamin Franklin
"A young man who wishes to remain a sound atheist cannot be too careful of his reading."--C.S. Lewis
"One must be an inventor to read well. There is then creative reading as well as creative writing."--Ralph Waldo Emerson
"There are worse crimes than burning books. One of them is not reading them."--Ray Bradbury
"Reading, after a certain age, diverts the mind too much from its creative pursuits. Any man who reads too much and uses his own brain too little falls into lazy habits of thinking."--Albert Einstein
"It's what you read when you don't have to that determines what you will be when you can't help it."--Oscar Wilde
"The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go."--Dr. Seuss
What is your favorite quote about reading? (What do you think of that Einstein quote?) Do you have one to add?
