Reading endorsement from Claudio Ranieri and other great quotes about reading

LCFCEvery now and then I like to share quotes about reading, and I could not resist doing so again today. The reason – this from Claudio Ranieri, the champion of the hour:

‘I do not have much time for relaxation but when I can, I like to read.’

Wonderful to have such a powerful endorsement of reading from a popular hero. Here are some more:

  • ‘Reading gives you knowledge, it gives you power.’ Andy McNabb
  • ‘We should read to give our souls a chance to luxuriate.’ Henry Miller
  • ‘I do believe something very magical can happen when you read a good book.’ JK Rowling
  • ‘The gadget that will have the biggest impact on literacy is already out there. It’s called a book.’ Anthony Horowitz
  • ‘Books and doors are the same thing. You open them, and you go through into another world.’ Jeanette Winterson
  • ‘Reading can take you anywhere in space and time if you’re willing to go.’ Juno Dawson
  • ‘If you only read the books that everyone else is reading, you can only think what everyone else is thinking.’ Haruki Murakami
  • ‘You can never be wise unless you love reading.’ Samuel Johnson
