Reading “out of the best books”
stretches our mental muscles and expands our horizons.
It takes us out of our mundane worlds and lets us travel as far as our imaginations
and the picture painting words of the authors can carry us.
Reading keeps us vibrant, it keeps us alive
and makes us far more interesting to out marriage mates and our families.
It is also a form of insurance against mental aging.
We are only as old as we think we are.
Some people say that one way to keep alive is to keep interested in many things,
and the way to keep interested is to read widely and wisely.
~ President Thomas S. Monson
