“It is literature which for me opened the mysterious and decisive doors of imagination and understanding. To see the way others see. To think the way others think. And above all, to feel” - Salman Rushdie
Literature is such a profound and deep way to look into someone else's life, his mind, his hopes and thoughts. Books have opened so many doors for me, taking me to places where my normal life and its finite limits could never have. Jhumpa Lahiri
In a real sense, people who have read good literature have lived more than people who cannot or will not read. It is not true that we have only one life to live; if we can read, we can live as many more lives and as many kinds of lives as we wish. S. I. Hayakawa
Asian literature is evolving with the people. It's always a reflection on what's happening to the culture at large. Kevin Kwan
Observing humans and observing oneself yields a clear-minded starting point for literature.
It's in literature that true life can be found. It's under the mask of fiction that you can tell the truth. Gao Xingjian
