This week’s Weekly Geeks theme is perfect for me because I love quotes and collect them. The requirement is simply to post one quote a day for a week. I have a journal full of quotes from books I have read as well as from other sources, so the challenge for me will be selecting which quotes to post. To make it slightly easier for me, I’m going to restrict myself to the theme of quotes about books and reading. These will not necessarily be from books, although some will. Actually, this may not be as hard as I thought, since glancing through my journal I surprisingly don’t seem to have that many quotes on this subject. In any case, without further ado, here is my quote for today:
For paradise in the world to come is uncertain, but there is indeed a heaven on this earth, a heaven which we inhabit when we read a good book.
