Every man who knows how to read has it in his power to magnify himself, to multiply the ways in which he exists,
to make his life full, significant and interesting.

Aldous Huxley

  The greatest gift is a passion for reading. It is cheap, it consoles, it distracts, it excites, it gives you knowledge of the world and
experience of a wide kind. It is a moral illumination.

Elizabeth Hardwick
