20+ book quotes that you can share as images
I love book quotes, and I share a lot of them on our webpage, on Twitter, or on Facebook. Quotes from famous writers are highly striking and inspiring, but there is one problem – in times of Internet and information overload even the strongest words may come unnoticed.
Nowadays, the biggest challenge is to make words visible. I realized that sharing the same quote as a text has much less response than having exactly the same quote as an image. That’s why I’ve prepared more than 20 book quotes that are in a form of images. You’ll find them in a picture gallery at the end of this post. Feel free to share them with your friends and followers.
There are many quotes on books and reading that are already visualized, some of them very beautifully, but some of the most convincing ones were left behind. This selection of quotes-as-images is intended to fill the gap, until new visualizations will arrive, help spread the word, and convince people to look… for more words.
Using the images to bring people closer to words may sound like a paradox, but’s it’s not. As you’ll see, the quotes below are not pictures, in fact. They are written words in jpg format, nothing else – but it works!
To create this set of quotes I used a very smart web tool called Share as Image. You can drag a bookmarklet into your browser’s bookmark bar, and if you come across any great thought, opinion or sentence, you can share it as a screen image. If you buy a Pro version, for $6.99 (it was $2.99 a couple of weeks ago), you can additionally customize the font and select a preferred font and background color.
In times of the Internet words become cheap. They also become a very fast-moving commodity. One page refresh and they are gone from a Twitter stream or Facebook newsfeed. Same words, if they are “preserved” as images, have much longer life to live.
