Of archers and bibliophiles

Two quotes today, one for parents, the other for book lovers . . . or both for book-loving parents!

First, from poet and artist Khalil Gibran, inspiration those of us with children:

You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth.

Be patient and aim well.

Second, from journalist and writer Christopher Morley, comfort for those of us with a stack of books always nearby:

There’s no mistaking a real book when one meets it.  It is like falling in love.

How many times have I fallen in love with pages and pages of unbroken prose?  Far too many to count.
