There is another one that I feel is just as, if not more, important:
“There is no difference between those who can’t read and those who can but don’t.”
Seems simple, but the ability to read doesn’t increase intelligence. It merely creates the potential to gain intelligence, to be changed by more ideas and art and timeless stories.
Are there books that you have wanted to, or maybe have even bought, but haven’t read yet? What is stopping you from reading them?
