The Phantom Tollbooth by Norton Juster

  • “And, since no one bothered to explain otherwise, he regarded the process of seeking knowledge as the greatest waste of time of all.” (9)
  • “…Milo continued to think of all sorts of things…of how much could be accomplished with just a little thought.” (31)
  • “Why, did you know that there are almost as many kinds of stillness as there are sounds? But, sadly enough, no one pays attention to them these days.” (151)
  • "Just because you can never read it doesn't mean that it's not worth looking for" (197)
  • "You often learn more by being wrong for the right reasons than right for the wrong reasons" (233)
  • "So many things are possible just as long as you don't know they're impossible" (247)
