Books

Fot the past half an hour,I've been trying to upload images unto this, but today it is just not happening..Therefore I cannot blog about what I intended to, in the first place.

A bit like life I suppose--You plan something and life takes its own turns.You change and you cope.
One thing that never changes is the joy a good book gives. The internet is fantastic--it connects across cultures, shrinks the miles,bridges gaps and expands horizons.But at times, servers are down, there is no power or you dont get what you are looking for. There are viruses that can get your system down and all kinds of other complications.

Books are so simple.You curl up witha good book, and it never lets you down.
I love the internet but i simply LOVE my books!

And looks like a lot of people agree with me.

Books are the carriers of civilization. Without books, history is silent, literature dumb, science crippled, thought and speculation at a standstill.
--Barbara Tuchman

A room without books is like a body without a soul.
--Cicero

The greatest gift is a passion for reading. It is cheap, it consoles, it distracts, it excites, it gives you the knowledge of the world and experience of a wide kind. It is a moral illumination.
--Elizabeth Hardwick

Just the knowledge that a good book is awaiting one at the end of a long day makes that day happier
--Kathleen Norris

Good friends, good books and a sleepy conscience: this is the ideal life.
--Mark Twain

  1. A good book to me is like the Wardrobe to Narnia...the deeper you walk into it..the more tangable the contents.
