Reading gives us some place to go when we have to stay where we are. (Mason Cooley, late college professor)
The Coronavirus pandemic gave most of us a lot of time at home to do nothing—or to find productive activity. As Cooley says, reading can get us out of the isolation and “do nothing” idleness that can be so unhealthy. Choose a good book—or several—and move away into adventure and learning that can encourage you and change your attitude about the hard times.
Let the wise listen and add to their learning, and let the discerning get guidance (Proverbs 1:5).
