20 quotes about books that you can share as images

I am a part of everything that I have read. - Theodore Roosevelt

Quotes from famous writers are highly inspiring, but there is one problem – in times of information overload even the strongest words may come unnoticed.

Nowadays, the biggest challenge is to make words visible. Sharing the same idea as the text has much less impact than showing it in the image.

There are many quotes on books and reading that have been already visualized, some of them very beautifully, but some of the most convincing ones are still left behind.

Using the images to bring people closer to words may sound like a paradox, but it’s not. In fact, the quotes below are not pictures. They are the words saved as images, nothing else. But it works!

In times of the Internet, words become a very fast-moving commodity. One page refresh and they are gone from the Twitter stream or Facebook newsfeed. Same words, if they are preserved as images, can amuse you for much longer.

This selection of quotes-as-images is intended to fill the gap until new visualizations arrive and convince users to look… for more words.
