Children are made readers on the laps of their parents. ~Emilie Buchwald
Books were my companions growing up as an only girl – my two brothers had each other – and having to move home every couple of years, as my Dad was in the Army. Our box of books was a precious cargo that went with us to every house we made home.
A home (world) without books is a body without soul. ~ Marcus Tullius Cicero
As I grew up, books became my compass – they helped me become more aware of myself, helped me to find new ways of thinking and helped me to take life-changing decisions too.
When I was asked ‘If your house was on fire and you could take only a few prized possessions, what would you take?’, I always answered – my books!
So, Pandora, I’m sorry but I just can’t imagine a world without books. And I’m glad I don’t really have to try.
May you be inspired – everyday!
