Quote by Theodore Parker

"The books that help you most are those which make you think that most. The hardest way of learning is that of easy reading; but a great book that comes from a great thinker is a ship of thought, deep freighted with truth and beauty."
--Theodore Parker

This little quote says so much with so few words. Perhaps someday I will be able to be so succinct. Some of the books I have learned the most from were heavy reading. Often, classics are more difficult than current fiction, but they have stood the test of time. Some books seem like they were written just for me, because they hold wisdom that I need.
