I can't imagine what my life would be like without reading. Reading has taught me to dream big dreams and make them come true. I'm encouraged by your interest in reading and hope that it will be as important in your life as it has been in mine."
- How to Get Control of Your Time and Your Life, by Alan Lakein
"The book’s main point was the necessity of listing short-, medium-, and long-term life goals, then categorizing them in order of their importance, with the A group being the most important, the B group next, and the C the last, then listing under each goal specific activities designed to achieve them"
- To Kill a Mockingbird
"My favorite book -- the one that inspired me the most when I was growing up and that I would recommend to all readers -- is To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee. Set in the rural South during the 1930s -- a time when justice often took a back seat to the color of a person's skin -- the novel tracks the journey of its characters and their society as they find new meaning in the ideals of justice, liberty, and equality upon which our great nation was founded. By getting to know the different characters in To Kill a Mockingbird, you, too will find new meaning in these values and understand why our nation's rich diversity is one of our most profound blessings."
