“Yet we are what we read.  We are the educators of our own personalities.  Certainly we have great influence in the crafting of our children.  If we brought half the intelligence to the making of souls that we bring to the making of machines, we would be people of character and imagination.  We would be sharp and therefore less inclined to kill and cheat each other.  We would know where to find the deep pleasures, so we would be less desperate for shallow entertainments and the ephemeral gratifications of gadgets.” ~ Thomas Moore, Original Self

“In my own experience, it is often the brief, simple, original books that turn out to be the most useful.  The books I have on my special shelf – books for personal, lifelong use – are all brief and untraditionally structured.  They are almost all illustrated, and they have considerable blank space on a page.  These are not sources of information but books for meditation.  A book is virtual space that invites contemplation and perusal.  In this space one tarries and looks around, absorbing the atmosphere, and then leaves, the author hopes, happy to have visited.” ~ Thomas Moore, Original Self

“In the connected age, reading and writing remain the two skills that are most likely to pay off with exponential results.  Reading leads to more reading.  Writing leads to better writing.  Better writing leads to a bigger audience and more value creation.  And the process repeats.” ~ Seth Godin, Whatcha Gonna Do With That Duck?

“In my whole life, I have known no wise people (over a broad subject area) who didn’t read all the time – none, zero. You’d be amazed at how much Warren [Buffett] reads – and how much I read. My children laugh at me. They think I’m a book with a couple of legs sticking out.” ~ Charles T. Munger.

“The power of reading a great book is that you start thinking like the author.  For those magical moments while you are immersed in the forests of Arden, you are William Shakespeare; while you are shipwrecked on Treasure Island, you are Robert Louis Stevenson; while you are communing with nature at Walden, you are Henry David Thoreau.  You start to think like they think, feel like they feel, and use imagination as they would.  Their references become your own, and you carry these with you long after you’ve turned the last page.  That is the power of literature, of a good play, of music; this is why we constantly want to expand our references.” ~ Anthony Robbins, Awaken the Giant Within
