Living More Fully

The point of reading is not reading but living. Reading helps you live with greater appreciation, keener insight and heightened emotional awareness. For proof, look to the innumerable great readers who have been great doers, from John Adams to Teddy Roosevelt to Paul Theroux to George Plimpton. Reading and action reinforce each other in an ever-escalating manner.

Your well-read life is a path for living more fully.

— Steve Leveen, The Little Guide to Your Well-Read Life, p. 31
