От души.

От души.





When my Daniel was 4 years old, I saw him reading a story from a book.
He did not read the story,he swallowed it,like one swallows food or
water.

Когда моему Даниилу было всего 4 года,я как-то увидел его,сидящего за книгой.
Он не просто ЧИТАЛ книгу,он ее глотал,как глотает еду или воду голодный или
мучимый жаждой человек".

Хаим Поток. Избранный.


Эти слова написаны о Данииле в книге Хаима Потока.
Но они вполне мне понятны..как если бы написаны обо мне,мои друзья..
Я не просто ЛЮБЛЮ книгу,книги-почти живые существа для меня и
мне они также необходимы,как мне необходим воздух,еда,вода
для жизни.
Я всегда был таким,сколько себя помню.
И ,наверное,всегда таким и буду.

A row of books is more than a compendium of information.

Ряд книг на полке-это больше,чем просто набор информации.

Джесси Келлерман

"Following breakfast I would head to the library and read for several hours.Some books for the first time and some for the dozenth.Many of them were too fragile to use-she had dozens of first editions,including Thus spoke Zarathustra , Nausea, and - Being and Time - but merely being surrounded by them gave me a sense of peace.This is why I will never own e-reader:because a row of books is more than a compendium of information.It's a map of all the places your mind has been,a group of friends standing silently by to comfort you.Cocooned in books,protected by them,I felt safe,and all that had been plaguing me began to fade,my mind sloughing off the clutter of years.I read for the pleasure of reading,rather than to strip-mine for facts.People sometimes describe meditation as "relaxed wakefulness",which phrase captures the feeling exactly.
