  • The author of Gulliver’s Travels sardonically proposed that Irish babies be fattened for English tables; other students urged less drastic ways of curbing population — none of which made the slightest difference.
    Robert A. Heinlein  --  Tunnel In the Sky
  • If any reader, therefore, should say that the book is "autobiographical" the writer has no answer for him: it seems to him that all serious work in fiction is autobiographical— that, for instance, a more autobiographical work than "Gulliver’s Travels" cannot easily be imagined.
    Thomas Wolfe  --  Look Homeward, Angel
  • I took a deep breath, shook my head, and plunged back into Gulliver’s Travels.
    Octavia Butler  --  Kindred
  • I wait down the street till the woman next door goes in, I climb in Mr. Timoney’s window for Gulliver’s Travels and walk miles to the City Home so that he won’t miss his reading.

  • Glancing at the bookcases, I thought I could distinguish the two volumes of Bewick’s British Birds occupying their old place on the third shelf, and Gulliver’s Travels and the Arabian Nights ranged just above.
    Charlotte Bronte  --  Jane Eyre
  • Mam is delighted I earned sixpence for reading to Mr. Timoney and what was it he wanted read, the Limerick Leader? I tell her I had to read A Modest Proposal from the back of Gulliver’s Travels and she says, That’s all right, ’tis only a children’s book.
    Frank McCourt  --  Angela’s Ashes
  • …of perception of a single thing, the whole background of color, warmth, odor, sound, taste established itself, so that later, the breath of hot dandelion brought back the grass-warm banks of Spring, a day, a place, the rustling of young leaves, or the page of a book, the thin exotic smell of tangerine, the wintry bite of great apples; or, as with Gulliver’s Travels, a bright windy day in March, the spurting moments of warmth, the drip and reek of the earth-thaw, the feel of the fire.
    Thomas Wolfe  --  Look Homeward, Angel
