I love Neil Gaiman so damn much. Best advice on how to raise a reader—let them read…whatever they want to read.

Terry Pratchett in Men at Arms, a Discworld book.

(Source: jwigs, via victoriousvocabulary)

"when you hit your thumb with an eight-pound hammer it’s nice to be able to blaspheme. It takes a very special and strong-minded kind of atheist to jump up and down with their hand clasped under their other armpit and shout, “Oh, random fluctuations-in-the-space-time-contiuum!” or “Aaargh, primitive-and-outmoded-concept on a crutch!”"

Neil Gaiman, during an interview with Robin Young on Here and Now 

(Source: la-arboleda, via neil-gaiman)

"Fiction is a fantastic way of looking out through somebody else’s eyes. You get to experience loss and tragedy and death. But experience these things in a form which means that when you close the pages and put the book back on the shelf, it’s over and you’re home and you’re safe"
