Today's quote is by Neil Gaiman. He wrote "The Graveyard Book." In his Newberry Medal speech he said:
"Reading is important.
Books are important."
"There. We who make the stories know that we tell lies for a living. But they are good lies that say true things, and we owe it to our readers to build them as best we can. Because somewhere out there is someone who needs that story. Someone who will be a different person. And who with that story may have hope, or wisdom, or kindness, or comfort. And that is why we write."
