Maya Angelou

You know you’ve read a good book when you turn the last page and feel a little as if you have lost a friend.
Paul Sweeney

A truly good book teaches me better than to read it. I must soon lay it down, and commence living on its hint. What I began by reading, I must finish by acting.
Henry David Thoreau

A book should serve as the ax for the frozen sea within us.

  1. I don’t remember learning to read but I do remember loving it as a child. So, I think the love of reading should be a part of our lives before we are old enough remember learning. I look forward to reading your blog in the future!
