The Power of Books (Quote)

“Why didn’t you take your own life, then, if you don’t mind me asking?”
“…books are what kept me going.”
 “Yes, reading is my only pleasure, and there are so many books left to read. For that reason alone it is worth going on living. Books make me happy, they help me escape from reality … Writers perform an extremely important role: they make others dream, those who are unable to dream for themselves. And everyone needs to dream. Could there be a more important job in life than that?” 
Felix L Palma in The Map of the Sky
