A life worth reading

For my whole life, my favorite activity was reading. It’s not the most social pastime.

                                                                                       Audrey Hepburn

The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more things that you learn, the more places you will go.

Dr. Seuss

Once you learn to read, you will be forever free.

Frederick Douglass

It is what you read when you don’t have to that determines what you will be when you can’t help it

Oscar Wilde

Books are the quietest and most constant of friends. They are the most accessible and wisest of counselors, and the most patient of teachers

 Charles William Eliot

Books are the plane, and the train, and the road. They are the destination, and the journey. They are home.

 Anna Quindlen

The best moments in reading are when you come across something – a thought, a feeling, a way of looking at things – which you had thought special and particular to you. Now here it is, set down by someone else, a person you have never met, someone even who is long dead. And it is as if a hand has come out and taken yours.

Alan Bennett

People can lose their lives in libraries. They ought to be warned.

Saul Bellow

Reading is a powerful gift.

It can change your life forever.

It is the antidote to ignorance and your ticket to freedom.

Read as much as you can and your world will never be the same.

Read, read, read…
