"None of us can give voice to what is deepest inside us, but our writings are an attempt. And when we hand over a book to a friend, we're in effect giving her what we cannot put into words. Reading is the richest conversation I know, and the books I press on fellow travellers on the shelf (much like the books I write) become the confessions I long to whisper to those I care for deepest." -- The Best Conversations of My Life by Pico Iyer, from The Gifts of Reading by Jennie Orchard
