Weekly Geeks: A Quote A Day

This week's Weekly Geeks challenge is:
You may want to come up with a theme, such as favorite passages from books, author quotes, political quotes, quotes about books or reading, humorous quotes, whatever. Or you may not want a theme at all; maybe you just want to gather up seven assorted quotes that appeal to you. You may want to start each of your posts of the week with a quote, or you may want to give quotes posts of their own in addition to your regular posts. It’s all up to you!

Signing Mr Linky this week means you’re committing to posting a quote each day for a full week, starting on the day you sign up. You can postdate your quote posts so they appear automatically if you can’t get to your blog each day.
The last time we did this as a WG challenge, I only managed to post three. This time, thanks to the power of Blogger's auto-post function (which is acting up for me recently; it didn't post this week's Recipe Tuesday, for example), I hope to have 7 days of quotey goodness.

First up, this little gem from Harper Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird:

"Until I feared I would lose it, I never loved to read. One does not love breathing."

Some people might say that comparing reading to breathing is a little extreme. I, however, am not one of those people.

I agree. I'm ashamed to say I own a copy of this book and haven't read it yet, no real reason. I best get to it. Great quote, thank you.
