“But maybe you shouldn't wonder so much about his secret, he says. What's really important is finding your secret - something that becomes like a seed inside you - that will grow as you grow up.”
Robert Burleigh, The Secret Of The Great Houdini

“Books are my treasures—the best that I’ve got.”

“Roads that connect my old self to my new.
Unlocking our hearts to what’s noble and true.”
Robert Burleigh, Sylvia's Bookshop: The Story of Paris's Beloved Bookstore and Its Founder
