A book

The best of a book is not the thought which it contains, but the thought which it suggests; just as the charm of music dwells not in the tones but in the echoes of our hearts.  
--Oliver Wendell Holmes


  1. Books suggest thoughts. Then they ignite the imagination. Then ideas begin to flow. Then something happens!

  2. Absolutely agree with this idea
    At 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"

  3. 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.
