Today a Reader, Tomorrow a Leader

In the book of John L. Mason (An Enemy Called Average) - he quoted Harvey Ullman: "Anyone who stops learning is old, whether this happens at twenty or eighty. Anyone who keeps on learning not only remains young, but becomes consistently more valuable regardless of physical capacity."

Reading books is one way of learning. It saves us from committing the same mistakes that others may have already experienced. Though we are most likely to learn (and never forget) our own mistakes, we don't have to take all the risks - we can always learn from others.

As per Derek Bok: "If you think education is expensive, try ignorance.."
