In modern day society, books are often looked at as things of the past, forgotten with all of the life lessons that they contain. Books, especially the older ones, hold complex themes that are glanced over and often taken for granted in this era of technology. Written word is a dying art, so the messages they contain are slowly becoming lost. Hopefully the following quotes will be able to embody the power of the written word in all of its former glory.

  • “Life appears to me too short to be spent in nursing animosity or registering wrongs.” -Charlotte Brontë in Jane Eyre
  • “It is a great misfortune to be alone, my friends; and it must be believed that solitude can quickly destroy reason.”  -Jules Verne in The Mysterious Island
  • “Nowadays people know the price of everything and the value of nothing.” -Oscar Wilde in The Picture of Dorian Gray
  • “Life is to be lived, not controlled; and humanity is won by continuing to play in face of certain defeat.” -Ralph Ellison in Invisible Man
  • “The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars.” -Jack Kerouac in On The Road

All in all, books have a power message to give and as a whole people need to start recognizing their substance in the world.
