Food for thought

'Tis the good reader
that makes the good book;in every book he finds passages
which seem confidences
or asides hidden from all else
and unmistakenly meant for his ear; the profit of books is according
to the sensibility of the reader; the profoundest thought
or passion sleeps as in a mine, until it is discovered
by an equal mind and heart.

~Ralph Waldo Emerson
