My favourite passage came from the ending of Off the Page (the second novel). Here's a shortened version of it;
“Everyone has a story. You might think it’s not worth telling, but then again, it’s a story no one has ever heard. What you do, what you say, how you carry the plot, just might leave a mark on someone. ..[Stories] help you escape, and they give you the chance to do things you never imagined you would or could…They are dreams for those who are still awake…Stories are all around us, caught in the throats of the strangers you walk past and scrawled on the pages of locked diaries..You’d best get going. Your reader is eagerly awaiting the next chapter”
Now for a bunch of other amazing and very inspiring quotes;
“I’d much rather pretend I’m somewhere else, and any time I open the pages of a book, that happens.”
"When you have so many people, each one inevitably fascinating, why would you limit yourself to only those like you?...Instead of feeling as if I'm being judged by someone different from me, I learn from them."
“We could all be lucky. We could all be what we want to be, instead of who someone else told us to be.”
“The act of reading is a partnership. The author builds a house, but the reader makes it a home.”
“Well, you have to find that rare someone for whom you’re not putting on a show. Someone who shines a spotlight in your direction—not because you’re who they need you to be, or who they want you to be…just because you’re you.”
“When she wanted to escape her life, she read books”
“At that moment, Oliver realized that home is not a place, but rather, the people who love you.”
“How do you know that you are not part of a book? That someone's not reading your story right now?”
