Quote of the Week

I'm fond of quotes which cast wide philosophical nets, evoke emotion and rearrange one's thinking. But sometimes you just can't beat the Oldies but Goodies like this of Dr Seuss (I Can Read with my Eyes Shut).


"The more that you read,
The more things you will know,
The more that you learn,
 The more places you'll go."

It simply recounts an epiphany I had in the girls' toilets of my new school in Adelaide as a wise old Grade One newbie (not sure why it occurred there, maybe because water inspires me); That books would always be my friends, that I could attain absolutely anything from within them and that their power was limitless.

Wouldn't it be lovely to bestow this upon children so that their worlds are boundless too?
