These are quotes from "The End of Your Life Book Club" by Will Schwalbe.
"Reading isn't the opposite of doing; it's the opposite of dying."
"I will never be able to read my mother's favorite books without thinking of her - and when I pass them on and recommend them, I'll know that some of my mother will live on in those readers..."
"You can be gone but ever present in the lives of people who loved you, in the same way that your favorite books stay with you your entire life," no matter how long it's been since you turned the last page."
"Mom was always a little amazed at parents who thought their kids should be reading more but never read themselves."
"Whenever you read something wonderful it changes your life, even if you aren't aware of it."
"There's something extraordinary about the first city you love."
"How could anyone who loves books not love a book that is itself so in love with books?"
"When you are with someone who is dying, you may need to celebrate the past, live the present, and mourn the future all at the same time."
"Good news and bad news are often relative to your expectations, not anything absolute."
"We're all in the end-of-your-life book club, whether we acknowledge it or not, each book we read may well be the last, each conservation the final one."
"All readers have reading in common."
"Books are the most powerful tool in the human arsenal."
