Here are some wonderful quotes from some wonderful writers, who have shared their thoughts on writing and reading. May these quotes bring you some inspiration for your reading, writing and in your every day life.

“We don’t need a list of rights and wrongs, tables of dos and don’ts: we need books, time, and silence. Thou shalt not is soon forgotten, but Once upon a time lasts forever.” — Philip Pullman

“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

“There is no friend as loyal as a book.” — Ernest Hemingway

“What a miracle it is that out of these small, flat, rigid squares of paper unfolds world after world after world, worlds that sing to you, comfort and quiet or excite you. Books help us understand who we are and how we are to behave. They show us what community and friendship mean; they show us how to live and die.” — Anne Lamott

“Be awesome! Be a book nut!” — Dr. Seuss

“Good books, like good friends, are few and chosen; the more select, the more enjoyable.” — Louisa May Alcott

Little Women by Louisa May Alcott

Little Women by Louisa May Alcott, is one of my favourite books that I loved since the first time I read it and it is perfect for anyone looking for a classic to read or give as a gift this Christmas. Published in two volumes in 1868 and 1869, the novel follows the lives of four sisters—Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy March—detailing their passage from childhood to womanhood, and is loosely based on the author and her three sisters. Alcott is a wonderful writer and this book is superbly written and it probably means a lot to me because, like Alcott, I have three sisters as well.
It is a wonderful story set during the 1800’s that gives the reader an insight into the family life of these four March women. It is a wonderful tale of coming to age and leaving childhood behind, learning new world and falling in love, and by the end of the story you will feel connected to the March sisters, as you follow their lives as young adolescence to adulthood as they learn the meaning of growing up, but still being there for each other.
You would love the beautiful Meg and her prevail to follow her heart. You would hope with Jo as she writes her stories. You would smile at the sweet Beth at her caring nature of all creatures. You would happily read as Amy the youngest of all sisters, follows her artistic ambitiousness.
It is perfect, marvellous, and wonderful. I could go on, but why don’t you tell me what you think of the March sisters in Little Women.
