American writer Clarence Day said, “The world of books is the most remarkable creation of man.Â Nothing else that he builds ever lasts.Â Monuments fall; nations perish; civilizations grow old and die out; and, after an era of darkness, new races build others.Â But in the world of books are volumes that have seen this happen again and again, and yet live on, still young, still as fresh as the day they were written, still telling men’s hearts of the hearts of men centuries dead.”
I borrowed this from Harvey Mackay’s recent post. I was blown away when I read it.
The question I have for you is, when did you last read a book? If books transcend time and you’re not reading regularly, aren’t you missing out on the limited time you have to experience timeless treasures?
Read to learn. Read to grow.
