Quote, Importance of Books Read in Childhood

Here is another quote from Grant, George & Karen Grant. Shelf Life: How Books Have Changed the Destinies and Desires of Men and Nations.

“The books that charmed us in youth recall the delight ever afterwards; we are hardly persuaded there are any like them, any deserving equally of our affections. Fortunate if the best fall in our way during this susceptible and forming period of our lives.”
- A. Bronson Alcott (1799-1888)
