“The man who does not read good books has no advantage over the man who cannot read them.”
I have had this quote hung on my wall for years, along with a picture of Mark Twain, and have just recently taken meaning to it. Some interpret it differently than others, but I believe I have found its true meaning (No, it’s not just about books, well at least I don’t think so).
Life is full of opportunities and adventures. Take them! The only way to live life, is by living it. When an opportunity arrises, you don’t want to regret, in the future, that you didn’t take advantage of it. Even if the opportunity is something that doesn’t completely strike your attention, do it anyway. It won’t hurt you, I promise. If it does turn out to be a bust, you will still gain something from the experience. These experiences are usually what we look back to, as the good times of our lives.
All I’m trying to say is, don’t be afraid! You will only hurt yourself by not trying. So, go out and ‘read a book.’
