Michael Stuart Kelly Posted November 22, 2016 Share Posted November 22, 2016 From "On Books and Reading" by Zhang Chao, 17th-18th century Chinese author: Quote Reading a book in one’s youth is like looking at the moon through a crevice; reading a book in middle age is like looking at the moon in one’s courtyard; and reading a book in old age is like looking at moon on an open terrace. This is because the depth of benefits of reading varies in proportion to the depth of one's own experience. The more I live, the more I find this to be true, especially for reading and rereading Ayn Rand's works. Michael Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
