I absolutely love this quote about reading and having a fulfilling life. Books can provide amazing adventures that we would otherwise be unable to experience. - "A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies. The man who never reads lives only one.
When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hang on a minute longer, never give up then, for it is just the place and time that the tide will turn - Harriet Beecher Stowe
