THIS is very true, ...my experience!
Books suggest thoughts. Then they ignite the imagination. Then ideas begin to flow. Then something happens!
Absolutely agree with this ideaAt some point, when I re-read a familiar book, I changed my first impression. This may be the result of the growth process or, possibly, a different mood.I acknowledge that I received much help in choosing my first readings.I like what the Apostle Paul says, "Prove all things, hold fast what is good"
Books, at least my favorite ones, are almost like friends. I carry a very special one with me to Mass each day; I call it "my dear book." Thank you all for writing. As always, your comments are so wise and beautiful. May Almighty God bless you and your dear ones.
