“Reading maketh a full man.”

And so, after a week on vacation in the Summer Capital of the Philippines, I’m back in the City of Love trying to decide if I have missed anything.

Yes I have. What I miss is the time to read books.

New fashions and technology models will have come and gone but reading is what exactly concerns me more ever since. It enhances my passion to live life, that for every reading gives new scenes, ideas, learnings, thrills and excitement.

I love to read, though reading is a hobby for me, the truth is that I’m not a good reader. I keep on trying.

I miss to read and re-read the sexiness of the Betsy by Harold Robbins, the inspirations from The Greatest Salesman in the World by Og Mandino, Dante the perflexing classical literature by Shakespeare, Christmas Cards during the yuletide season, a heart to heart conference with God through His word in the Bible, and many more that hold my attention, open my soul and keep my good heart beating.

The biggest reason to why one reads is to rid a person of mediocrity.

I know only books can bring the expansiveness of space and infiniteness of time in front of a reader.

I learn only books can direct the already flying signals of the noble life towards one who reads.

I recognize only books can present to the one who reads the profound wisdom in that wonderful contrast against ignorance and hideousness.

๐Ÿ’กReading will enrich the mind of ancient and present experiences. “The more that you read, the more things you will know.”

In contrast, no matter how sharp the blade, it will eventually rust without constant sharpening. ๐Ÿ›๏ธ

As the rain and snow come down from heaven and stay upon the ground to water the earth, and cause the grain to grow and to produce seed for the farmer and bread for the hungry, so also is my word. I send it out, and it always produces fruit. It shall accomplish all I want it to and prosper everywhere I send it.

*The Book of Isaiah 55:10-11
