“Reading is to the mind what exercise is to the body” Sir Richard Steele
Reading is necessary to the man as it is the air, the water and the food. It is a spiritual exercise that makes you to know the people and the life.
Books are minds alive on the shelves. By taking up one of these books, and opening it, we can hear the voices of people far away in time and space. By reading we can hear great people of long ago speaking to us, mind to mind, heart to heart. The book is a journey through the souls, thoughts and beauty. People who read can live as many more lives and as many kinds of lives as they wish.
Reading is essential because it makes a person ready to converse…these people have a broad knowledge…and more information with which to make evaluations and decisions. Reading is the best way of developing our imagination, moral qualities. It makes us to understand better the world around us and to see it in a new light.
Those who love reading have everything within their reach. For a small price one can visit other hands and great periods of history, learn from some of the greatest minds and world shapers, grapple with great issues, learn in a space of a few hours what others grappled with, researched and studied for their whole lives.
