5.15 {WhateverWednesday} There is no frigate like a book…

Whatever Wednesday — a chance to post something I’ve seen that I’m diggin’. Though often a cool quote or poster, it might simply be a picture.

Enjoy!… and consider posting your own Whatever.


The idea of reading as a journey—as an escape—comes up repeatedly. In a student’s poetry book, I just read the poem “A Book” by Emily Dickinson. So here is a fitting graphic accompanied by that poem:

Books are the plane, and the train, and the road. They are the destination, and the journey. They are home. -Anna Quindlen Inspirational Reading Quotes

                     A Book

There is no frigate like a book
To take us lands away,
Nor any coursers like a page
Of prancing poetry.
This traverse may the poorest take
Without oppress of toll;
How frugal is the chariot
That bears a human soul! 

 
                                  •Emily Dickinson
