“The greatest gift is a passion for reading. It is cheap, it consoles, it distracts, it excites, it gives you knowledge of the world and experience of a wide kind. It is a moral illumination.”
I like this quote because I can consider the word "gift" in two ways. On the one hand it could be used in the context of having a gift for something, as in a passion for reading is a talent you can possess. But I can also look at this as seeing gift in terms of something we can pass on to others. Looking at the second meaning of gift, is there someone in your life who you would say has given you a passion for reading?
