As you read a book word by word and page by page, you participate in its creation, just as a cellist playing a Bach suite participates, note by note, in the creation, the coming-to-be, the existence, of the music. And, as you read and re-read, the book of course participates in the creation of you, your thoughts and feelings, the size and temper of your soul.― Ursula K. Le Guin

Belangrijk welke boeken je leest, als je leest. Belangrijk welke boeken je niet leest. Lezend creëer je ‘the size and temper of your soul’.
