Books or the written word is a utensil that should be frequently used to feed the mind. Even if read in brief intervals there is much to be learned and absorbed...even entertaining.
Welcome these are but a few of my favorite classic reads. They are from a variety of authors like Edgar Allan Poe, Emily Bronte, Octavia Butler, Harper Lee, Jules Verne and more... To begin with is a quote from a classic author...
Parable of the Sower

Other Literary Quotes:
Author: George Eliot
“We mortals, men and women, devour many a disappointment between breakfast and dinner-time; keep back the tears and look a little pale about the lips, and in answer to inquiries say, “Oh, nothing!” Pride helps; and pride is not a bad thing when it only urges us to hide our hurts— not to hurt others.”
Author: Charlotte Brontë
"Life appears to me too short to be spent in nursing animosity or registering wrongs."
Author: James Joyce
"History, Stephen said, is a nightmare from which I am trying to awake."
