The Ugly Myth of "Too Much Reading"

Guys, I just couldn't help myself:

"Books change us. They excite us, they compel us to question, to fight, to believe in possibility of the improbable; they are the wombs of young minds, the incubators of creativity."

Now on LitStack, an OpEd because it needed to be said. The Ugly Myth of "Too Much Reading" http://wp.me/p1FEpI-4aK #HudsonFallsFreeLibrary Read more of this blog post »

Another gem of a love letter to the Big Easy from a man who knows the city best. Full of mystery and myth, heart and soul all wrapped tightly around the spirit of New Orleans. A perfect second chapter in this phenomenal series.

Highly recommended.

“Every success I have ever had or will have in the future comes not solely
from my own ambition and hard work, but also from those that have encouraged,
supported and challenged me. Success is never, ever a one person job.”
T.S. Tate

“Books change us. They excite us, they compel us to question, to fight, to believe in the possibility of the improbable; they are the wombs of young minds, the incubators of creativity.”

“For every field planted and grown, for every tree rekindled from their rotting root beds, comes that ancient instinct, that hunger for acceptance, for love, for allegiance. It is a poison greater than any we had sown into the earth.”
T.S. Tate, Winter Wonders

“You're never given a dream without also being given the power to make it true.”
Richard Bach, Illusions: The Adventures of a Reluctant Messiah

“You think because he doesn't love you that you are worthless. You think that because he doesn't want you anymore that he is right -- that his judgement and opinion of you are correct. If he throws you out, then you are garbage. You think he belongs to you because you want to belong to him. Don't. It's a bad word, 'belong.' Especially when you put it with somebody you love. Love shouldn't be like that. Did you ever see the way the clouds love a mountain? They circle all around it; sometimes you can't even see the mountain for the clouds. But you know what? You go up top and what do you see? His head. The clouds never cover the head. His head pokes through, beacuse the clouds let him; they don't wrap him up. They let him keep his head up high, free, with nothing to hide him or bind him. You can't own a human being. You can't lose what you don't own. Suppose you did own him. Could you really love somebody who was absolutely nobody without you? You really want somebody like that? Somebody who falls apart when you walk out the door? You don't, do you? And neither does he. You're turning over your whole life to him. Your whole life, girl. And if it means so little to you that you can just give it away, hand it to him, then why should it mean any more to him? He can't value you more than you value yourself.”
Toni Morrison

“Great things are not accomplished by those who yield to trends and fads and popular opinion.”
Jack Kerouac

“Boys and girls in America have such a sad time together; sophistication demands that they submit to sex immediately without proper preliminary talk. Not courting talk — real straight talk about souls, for life is holy and every moment is precious.”
Jack Kerouac, On the Road
