The magic of reading

The best moments in reading are when you come across something – a thought, a feeling, a way of looking at things – that you’d thought special, particular to you.

And here it is, set down by someone else, a person you’ve never met, maybe even someone long dead.

And it’s as if a hand has come out and taken yours.

    This blog is the first tab I see when I log in to my work computer. Most days, these short quotes are just as the blog title claims: motivating, Some days they’re truly inspiring and usually, like today, they say something you might have said, if you could have…like “a hand has come out and taken yours”. Thank you Motivatingdaily!
