Reading enhances our imagination and more importantly, our life. Whether we learn something new, or discover a great story, there is no doubt that reading is beneficial to our mental well being.
I have compiled a few great quotes about reading and literature by famous authors and poets:
“Stories of imagination tend to upset those without one.” – Terry Pratchett
“A classic is a book that has never finished saying what it has to say.” – Italo Calvino
“A good book is an event in my life.” – Stendhal
My favorite of the first 3 is the last one…after I finish reading a good book, I always feel like something (an event) has taken place in my life.
“Literature is news that stays news.” – Ezra Pound
“The reading of all good books is like conversation with the finest men of past centuries.” – Rene Descartes
“Reading is that fruitful miracle of a communication in the midst of solitude.” – Marcel Proust
Reading is a great adventure into various times, wisdom, imagination, thinking, culture, knowledge, ideas, reality, etc. But do not forget to read yourself, it is the most complete (holy) book.
My favorite is the one you chose from Descartes
Reading for me is relaxing. It takes you away from the everyday stresses of your life.
