1. A book burrows into your life in a very profound way because the experience of reading is not passive.

3. Give to every other human being every right that you claim for yourself.
Robert Ingersoll (1833 – 1899)

Calvin Coolidge (1872 – 1933)
5. There is nothing new under the sun but there are lots of old things we don’t know.
Ambrose Bierce (1842 – 1914), The Devil’s Dictionary
