♥ “To read is to fly……..” grateful for ♡Steve McCurry & books

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♥
