If you want your life to be a magnificent story, then begin by realizing you are the author and everyday you have the opportunity to write a new page.
In a way, the best education you can get is just talking with people who are really smart and interested in things, and you can get that for the cost of lunch.
‘Even the most ardent reader will never reach the end of a good bookshop.’

I consider books to be good for our health, and also our spirits, and they help us to become poets or scientists, to understand the stars or else to discover them deep within the aspirations of certain characters, those who sometimes, on certain evenings, escape from the pages and walk among us humans, perhaps the most human of us all.
It takes nothing to join the crowd. It takes everything to stand alone.
