Biscuit of The Day

 John A. Widtsoe said the following

“The reading habit is most valuable in life. I mean by that the practice of using a little time, say half an hour a day, in the systematic reading of worthwhile literature. The mind is opened to precious fields of thought; the achievements of the ages become ours; even the future takes form. As the mind and spirit are fed by well chosen reading, comfort, peace and understanding come to the soul. Those who have not tried it, have missed a keen and easily accessible joy.

“Moreover a person who engages in such a regular daily reading, if only a few minutes a day, in the course of a few years becomes a learned man. But it must be a regular daily habit. … Some of the best educated men that I have ever met have never been to college but have acquired the habit of daily reading of good books for a few minutes a day.” 

I can truly say that I know that my mind has been opened to precious fields of thought; and the achievements of the ages have become mine; and even the future has taken form. We can learn from men that have taken the time necessary to acquire inspiration and share it freely with the masses. 
Like Jame Allen who said "the dreamers are the saviors of the world" 
Victor Frankel who said "The attempt to develop a sense of humor and to see things in a humorous light is some kind of a trick learned while mastering the art of living". 
Mahatma Gandhi "The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong". 
Steven R Covey that said "Seek first to understand than be understood" 
And last but defiantly not the least Og Mandino Who said " Love will be my greatest weapon and it will melt the hardest hearts  like the sun who's rays melt the coldest clay.And my love will also be my shield that will repulse the arrows of hate and the spears of anger.
I have become a better man because these men have lived. 

Thanks for reading 

William Henderson
