“The uneducated brain is like a sponge that has been bound tightly with cords. It can absorb almost nothing! Everything we read cuts one of those binding cords and allows the brain to expand, absorb more, interrelate better and have a broader interpretation of the world. It's time to cut those binding cords and let our brains grow totheri full potential. Read!”
