Miracle Of Books{Inspiration from Edward Morgan}

“A Book is the only place you can examine a fragile thought without breaking it, or explore an explosive idea without fear it will go off in your face.”

  1. Zeenat,
    There is much depth in reading, and in letting the words come into our being…without having those words actually take place. And what a beautiful way to grow ourselves…through words we let into our being…without becoming our being.

    1. HI Lance,
      Youre so right…the kind of depth that comes from words just cannot come from movies somehow…I have always found that I have always enjoyed the books better than the movies that were made for those particular stories.
      The words certainly have a life of their own….and that life is what makes our being so so alive 🙂

  3. Hi Zeenat,

    That is an interesting quote. On some level it is kind of sad because it states that only such exploration of thoughts can occur in books. I know I am reading way too much into it so apologies on that.

    The great thing about reading is that it exposes us to all kinds of ideas and it is up to us to see if those ideas hold merit or mean nothing. Many times in my life, a book has provided the groundwork for major life changes. I love to learn and learning is a life long process. So it is a joyous thing. Of course, this is coming from a person who just loves books! 🙂

    Hope all is well! 🙂

  4. Hi Zeenat, Happy New year to you.

    I believe reading is the single best thing you can do to increase your intelligence, your word power, your language skills, your thought processing power, your consciousness, and so much more. It’s an amazing gift so few of us utilize.

    Loved the quote.

    I wish you all the best for 2010 and I am sure our paths will cross many times this year.

  5. Oh how I love books — they’re what got me started on my spiritual path at age 25. I wasn’t even a big reader back then, but I learned that the right books just suck me in. Now I have eight books being read at any one time, not to mention blogs! I’m reading like it’s my job!

    Much joy to you, my beautiful friend!

  6. Hi Z! Oh the zillions of books in my life! I used to dream of having a house with a 2-story library, huge windows, and a special big comfy chair – all I would do is read, read, read! Seemed so idyllic – only thing is, would I have been living life or just reading about it? For decades I READ about painting, too scared to actually DO painting I guess. At 50 I decided enough! Hubs bought me an easel and I let the artist out – whoa, Nellie, what fun!!! Been painting ever since. When I’m writing and words fail me I go dabble in my art studio and come back so refreshed.

    I still read like a fiend but mostly non-fiction. It’s brain food and as necessary for me as breathing. I don’t have that dream anymore. I do have a huge collection of books but not on the grand scale of the dreams “library”.

    Love the quote! And you!

    Happy New Year Z!

    Books – I just love books. I used to lose myself in books, and still do on occaison. With my nose currently inside Eckart Tolle’s “Power of Now” I’m free to explore the mind blowing lessons he has.

    When not immersed in personal development and reading to learn, I escape to other worlds, ride dragons, and fall madly in love with tall dark and handsome vampires (just don’t tell my honey… 😉 )

  8. Books open the world to us and new ideas. The only way we grow year by year is what we learn from the books we read and the people we share ideas with.

  9. It’s a great quotation, though there are other ways to see it. I love books, but we learn from living more than from books. Also, there are many books which at the right time in our lives are explosive, and completely change our lives!

    In context, I fully agree. I read a lot and usually am reading multiple things at the same time.


  10. I have always loved books and still do even though now I read vastly more online than off. Even with the Internet there is still nothing like holding a book in your hands and carrying it wherever you feel like reading.

    Books make great gifts – especially for children – so that they will fall in love with reading and do it throughout their lives and not just while they attend school. Every child needs something to read that they are interested in because the more the read the easier it will become and the more they will enjoy it.

  11. Books have been like little friends to me over the course of my life. They have changed me for sure. I’ve probably learnt more from books than I did from school. But do you know what I like the best about books? The connection with the author. That book in your hands was written by someone – they may be miles away, or maybe even dead now, but reading someone’s words is like an intimate conversation.
