I re-blogged this post because it made me think that great quotes are a prelude to reading and every author knows what they say may very well have consequences like causing someone to picking up a book and start reading. The words written on a page can change lives, like turning on a light bulb in someone’s mind. That someone may decide to finish high school or go to college or start a movement that may lead to social change, or cause someone to hold on to life when all else seems lost. Writers have the power to change the world, and writers have changed the world. That is why quotes from insightful writers and others are so important. So, thank you Dr. French and so many others who share amazing quotes, that may motivate someone to pick up a book and read.
