The hands that turn pages

Reading is best done when curiosity renders discipline unnecessary.

Even the most difficult of books are made palatable by an appetite born of wonder.

Nurturing the questions and fascinations that are native to one’s own soul is far more conducive to the development of  literacy than laboriously poring over highly regarded texts.

A good reader seeks to be enthralled, and not merely educated.

A stirred imagination and a stimulated mind—these are the hands that turn pages.

  1. Beautifully said, indeed. Readers are made, not born. Just to start by reading what interests us, not what others think should interest us. “Curiosity and Wonder.” “Enthralled and Educated.” One’s appetite will grow from there. “A stirred imagination and a stimulated mind.” Excellent.
