Quote of the Week

The written word is all that stands between memory and oblivion. Without books as our anchors, we are cast adrift, neither teaching nor learning. They are windows on the past, mirrors on the present, and prisms reflecting all possible futures. Books are lighthouses erected in the dark sea of time.

Jeffrey Robbins, 'A Lighthouse In The Sea Of Time'

Nice quote, and true. It's alarming to think that few young people today read.

I beg to differ :P

I think many young people read. The problem being *what* is being read these days...
