Books are a great blessing. They are the essence of man’s experience of centuries. They are such a precious legacy that civilization has bestowed upon man. They are the source of knowledge and power. They give us information on every matter and enlighten our soul. They are more valuable than wealth. They are our best friends which do not leave us in the lurch; rather strengthen our nerves. They teach us how to overpower the difficulties with patience and perseverance. They teach us to be sober and serious during the times of joy and comfort.
