Quote of the Day

I have a little book in which I have been collecting quotes that I love, it has been so wonderful to have all of these collected in one place.  Every so often I would love to share one with you, here is the first:

I have sometimes dreamt  that when the Day of Judgment dawns and the great conquerors and lawyers and statesmen come to receive their rewards - their crowns, and their laurels, their names carved indelibly upon imperishable marble - the Almighty will turn to Peter and will say, not without a certain envy when He sees us coming with our books under our arms, "Look these need no rewards.  We have noting to give them here. They have loved reading."

-Virginia Wolf, from an essay in The Second Common Reader
