A book is made from a tree. It is an assemblage of flat, flexible parts (still called ‘leaves’) imprinted with dark pigmented squiggles. One glance at it and you hear the voice of another person, perhaps someone dead for thousands of years. Across the millennia, the author is speaking, clearly and silently, inside your head, directly to you. Writing is perhaps the greatest of human inventions, binding together people, citizens of distant epochs, who never knew one another. Books break the shackles of time, proof that humans can work magic.

1. Your patience when you have nothing.
2. Your attitude when you have everything.
3. …and who you help whenever you are able.

Happiness is the key to success.
The quieter you become,
the more you can hear.
Work hard in silence.
Let success make the noise.
True friends stab you in the front.
