Reading makes immigrants of us all. It takes us away from home, but more important, it finds homes for all of us. ~ Jean Rhys


I am so impressed again with the life-giving power of literature. If I were a young person today, trying to gain a sense of myself in the world, I would do that again by reading, just as I did when I was young.  ~ Maya Angelou 





One glance at a book and you hear the voice of another person, perhaps dead for a 1,000 years. To read is to voyage through time. ~ Carl Sagan
