No man can be called friendless who has God and the companionship of good books. ~Elizabeth Barrett Browning
The books I like the
best are those
That give us more than
what they say --
They simply open
Through which our
Thoughts can roam away.
Rebecca McCann: Complete Cheerful Cherub
I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. ~Anna Quindlen, "Enough Bookshelves," New York Times, 7 August 1991
You may have tangible wealth untold;
Caskets of jewels and coffers of gold.
Richer than I you can never be -
I had a mother who read to me.
Thank you so much for visiting me and some of my childhood friends. laurie
