Reading is an act of civilization; it's one of the greatest acts of civilization because it takes the free raw material of the mind and builds castles of possibilities.

阅读是一种文明行为;这是文明史上最伟大的行为之一,因为它获取了思想的免费原材料,建造了各种可能性的城堡。

Our time here is magic! It's the only space you have to realize whatever it is that is beautiful, whatever is true, whatever is great, whatever is potential, whatever is rare, whatever is unique, in. It's the only space.

我们在这里的时间是神奇的!这是你唯一需要认识到的空间,无论它是什么美丽,无论是真的,伟大的,任何有潜力的,任何稀有的,任何独特的,在。这是唯一的空间。

The magician and the politician have much in common: they both have to draw our attention away from what they are really doing.

Reading, like writing, is a creative act. If readers only bring a narrow range of themselves to the book, then they'll only see their narrow range reflected in it.

阅读和写作一样,是一种创造性的行为。如果读者只是把自己的一小部分带到书中,那么他们只会看到书中所反映的自己的一小部分。

The fact of storytelling hints at a fundamental human unease, hints at human imperfection. Where there is perfection there is no story to tell.

讲故事的事实暗示了人类根本的不安,暗示了人类的不完美。哪里有完美,哪里就没有故事可讲。

本·奥克里

When you can imagine you begin to create and when you begin to create you realize that you can create a world that you prefer to live in, rather than a world that you're suffering in.

当你想象你开始创造,当你开始创造时,你意识到你可以创造一个你喜欢生活的世界,而不是一个你正在痛苦中的世界。
