Together, we can make a difference . . . one word at a time!
"Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counsellors, and the most patient of teachers." -Charles W. Eliot
"Literacy is a legacy that can be passed from parent to child. But the barriers associated with low literacy - poverty, unemployment, low self-esteem, school failure - are also handed down from generation to generation. Children whose parents lack basic literacy skills often grow up to face similar challenges, perpetuating a cycle of disadvantage." -National Center for Family Literacy
"Books are the legacies that a great genius leaves to mankind, which are delivered down from generation to generation as presents to the posterity of those who are yet unborn." -Joseph Addison
"I've never known any trouble that an hour's reading didn't assuage." -Charles De Secondat
"What we become depends on what we read after all of the professors have finished with us. The greatest university of all is a collection of books." -Thomas Carlyle
