Quotations on Reading

Thank you Charles French for remarkable quotes on reading.

charles french words reading and writing



“You don’t have to burn books to destroy a culture. Just get people to stop reading them.”

                                                                           Ray Bradbury



“Reading is the sole means by which we slip, involuntarily, often helplessly, into another’s skin, another’s voice, another’s soul.”

                                                                          Joyce Carol Oates



“One glance at a book and you hear the voice of another person, perhaps someone dead for 1,000 years. To read is to voyage through time.”

                                                                          Carl Sagan

About Jennie

I have been teaching preschool for over thirty years. This is my passion. I believe that children have a voice, and that is the catalyst to enhance or even change the learning experience. Emergent curriculum opens young minds. It's the little things that happen in the classroom that are most important and exciting. That's what I write about. I am highlighted in the the new edition of Jim Trelease's bestselling book, "The Read-Aloud Handbook" because of my reading to children. My class has designed quilts that hang as permanent displays at both the National Liberty Museum in Philadelphia, and the Fisher House at the Boston VA Hospital.

    I love quotes, Jennie, and there are some remarkable ones here. “You don’t have to burn books to destroy a culture. Just get people to stop reading them.” That’s a frightening thought, especially for an author! Thank you for sharing this lovely post ♥

    I love that quote of Carl Sagan – to read is to journey through time – brilliant!

    Wonderful quotes, Jennie. I feel soooo sad when kids and adults tell me they no longer read books. Instead they stare at social media on their phones.

    Great quotes as always, especially Sagan’s. Reading books written centuries ago really is like the next best thing to having a time machine.
    Best wishes, Pete.
