Thought for today:
"I was once told that the power of the spoken and written word transports one's mind and body into a meeting with a new world, which once entered knows no return. I wonder how many men and women have started a new era in their lives from the reading of a book. How often has the turning of a page led to a great change in one's life or the theme of a book been responsible for the movement of ideas from one plane of thought to a different dimension?
There has never been a sword fashioned that was as sharp as the mind forged in any thinking man or woman. There has never been a weapon that could floor an opponent quicker and more effectively than a carefully crafted insult spoken in public gaze. There has never been any instrument as powerful as the pen and its transcribed emotions; from love letter to death warrant or peace treaty to declaration of war, the outcome can change the course of life.
So read on and read more often."William Forde: August 29th, 2015.
