“ Books are my friends, my companions. They make me laugh and cry and find meaning in life. ”
Books are a poor substitute for female companionship, but they are easier to find.
Books are the plane, and the train, and the road. They are the destination, and the journey. They are home.
Times are bad. Children no longer obey their parents, and everyone is writing a book.
Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counselors, and the most patient of teachers.
