'The best thing about the bedroom was the bed. I liked to stay in bed for hours, even during the day with covers pulled up to my chin. It was good in there, nothing ever occurred in there, no people, nothing.'
— Charles Bukowski, Ham on Rye
'I have a passion for teaching kids to become readers, to become comfortable with a book, not daunted. Books shouldn’t be daunting, they should be funny, exciting and wonderful; and learning to be a reader gives a terrific advantage.'
'We have so much time and so little to do. Strike that, reverse it.'
I want to fall in love with the sound of your voice as you lean in close and tell me I’m beautiful. I want to fall in love with the way that you wrap your arms around me and make me feel like I’m the only girl in the world.
