Read the best books first, or you may not have a chance to read them at all.
–Henry David Thoreau
I have the pleasure of knowing a beautiful lady named Joan who is in her 90's. She has inspired me for many years now. She has a smile that lights up the room and I have enjoyed every moment spent with her. This quote reminds me of Joan. She once told me to make sure I kept reading while I was able. She enjoyed reading but now she finds her eyes get too dry. This is something that at my age I think little of. I pick up a book and read. No problems. As a child I didn't enjoy reading and missed far to many good books. Now I read to make up for lost time. But how much time do we have? Well, Joan knows not to take it all for granted. Joan tells me to read while I can. She misses a good read but her eyes wont let her.
