Quotes about Reading & Give-away Reminder (ending soon): Custom wall graphic

We have a give-away for a custom wall graphic from Uprinting.com ending tomorrow, and there is currently ONE ENTRY.  Go enter -- pretty good odds of winning at this point!  I think people are hesitating to enter because there is a $5 handling fee.  But keep in mind that a 24" x 24" wall graphic costs $46, plus the $5 handling fee.  I'm leaning toward creating a sort of collage (with 6-9 openings) of photos of each of his relatives reading to the infant bibliophile, perhaps with a quote around the outside or at the bottom, to stick above his bookshelf.  

Here are a few quotes about reading that I've found in my googling today:

"The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more you learn, the more places you'll go."

— Dr. Seuss, "I Can Read With My Eyes Shut!"

***

"Children are made readers on the laps of their parents."

— Emilie Buchwald

***

"So please, oh PLEASE, we beg, we pray, Go throw your TV set away, And in its place you can install, A lovely bookshelf on the wall."

— Roald Dahl, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

***

When I got [my] library card, that was when my life began.
~ Rita Mae Brown ~

***

It is a great thing to start life with a small number of really good books which are your very own.
~ Sir Arthur Conan Doyle ~

***

The more that you read,
the more things you will know.
The more that you learn,
the more places you'll go.
~ Dr. Seuss ~


Do you have a favorite quote about reading?  Particularly reading to children?  I'd love any suggestions.  

If you'd like to enter, you can do it on the original give-away post.
