Hello Friends♡

I just had to share this amazing post - “To read is to fly………………” by the exceptionally talented photographer ♡Steve McCurry ……..I am very touched by EVERYTHING about it………so brilliant and beautiful………Buckle your seat belt and drink deeply as you travel! :)

He says: “Everywhere I go in the world, I see young and old, rich and poor, reading books.  Whether readers are engaged in the sacred or the secular, they are, for a time,
transported to  another world…”

Here are just a taste of his wonderful collection of QUOTES on books and reading that he slips in here and there throughout his photo essay.

I’m old-fashioned and think that reading books is the 
most glorious pastime that humankind has yet devised.
- ♡Wisława Szymborska 1996 Nobel Prize in Literature

At one magical instant in your early childhood, 
the page of a book–that string of confused, alien ciphers–shivered into meaning. 
Words spoke to you, gave up their secrets; at that moment, whole universes opened. 
You became, irrevocably, a reader. – ♡Alberto Manguel

Reading is the sole means by which we slip, involuntarily, often helplessly,
into another’s skin, another’s voice, another’s soul. – ♡Joyce Carol Oates

Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; 
they are the most accessible and wisest of counselors, and the 
most patient of teachers.  - ♡Charles William Eliot

We read to know we are not alone. - ♡C.S. Lewis

Books are the plane, and the train, and the road.
They are the destination, and the journey.
They are home. – ♡Anna Quindlen

Books, I found, had the power to make time stand still,
retreat or fly into the future. – ♡Jim Bishop

To learn to read is to light a fire; every syllable that is spelled out is a spark.
- ♡Victor Hugo

The reading of all good books is like a conversation with the finest minds of past centuries. – ♡Rene Descartes

With deep gratitude and admiration for such gifted talent, LOVE Susie♥

To read is to fly:
it is to soar to a point of vantage which gives a view
over  wide terrains of history,

human variety, ideas, shared experience and the
fruits of many inquiries.

Aung San Suu Kyi, Burma, winner of the Nobel Peace Prize in 1991

Reading is everything. Reading makes me feel like I’ve accomplished something,
learned something, become a better person.
Reading makes me smarter. Reading gives me something to talk about later on…
Reading is grist. Reading is bliss.
- Nora Ephron

India

Everywhere I go in the world, I see young and old, rich and poor, reading books.
