Great book quotes featured in Inkheart:

Their names are What and Why and When and How and Where and Who’
Rudyard Kipling, The Elephant’s Child

‘In books I meet the dead as if they were alive,
In books I see what is yet to come...
All things decay and pass with time...

If God had not given mortal men the book to aid them’
Richard de Bury, The Philobiblon

Hi DesLily, thanks for dropping by. I love the quote but not so enthusiastic with the book. Hopefully the second book will be better. :)
