Reading & Living, Bound Together at the Hip

'In a very real sense, people who have read good literature have lived more than people who cannot or will not read...It is not true that we have only one life to live; if we can read, we can live as many more lives and as many kinds of lives as we wish.'
--S.I. Hayakawa (We think he got it mostly right. We'd simply replace the fussy and fatally imprecise word "literature" with the far more useful words "good writing").
