Quote About Learning from Lloyd Alexander
Not long ago, I wrote about the importance of reading for mental fitness. Educating ourselves (whether it’s in the realm of our greatest interests or in the realm of current events) does more than keep us sharp, it allows us to stretch our minds and grow mentally.
Always a stretch worth taking, right?
