“Do not read, as children do, to amuse yourself, or like the ambitious, for the purpose of instruction. No, read in order to live.”
― Gustave Flaubert
This is important. Sometimes we just forget why we read. People shouldn’t read because they want to be better than everyone else. They should do it because they want to learn, to live, to become better people. I don’t know… most of my life other people have asked me why I read, how I do it that much. The thing is that I love it so much that I wouldn’t know how to stop. I also don’t want to.
Life would just be too sad without books, don’t you think?
