Books are the carriers of civilization. Without books, history is silent, literature dumb, science crippled, thought and speculation at a standstill. They are engines of change, windows on the world, lighthouses erected in the sea of time.

Not all readers are leaders, but all leaders are readers.
Think before you speak. Read before you think.
