I have three treasures. Guard and keep them:The first is deep love,The second is frugality,And the third is not to dare to be ahead of the world.Because of deep love, one is courageous.Because of frugality, one is generous.Because of not daring to be ahead of the world, one becomes the leader of the world.
When life itself seems lunatic, who knows where madness lies? Perhaps to be too practical may be madness. To surrender dreams, this may be madness. To seek treasures where there is only trash...Too much sanity may be madness, and maddest of all is to see life as it is and not as it should be.Miguel de Cervantes
The public library system of America is one of the great treasures of this country, and reading is the entry way to everything -- to personal fulfillment as well as to the future dynamism of our whole society, ... I think Laura Bush's leadership in this and her role model (status) as a professional librarian and teacher and as the host of this festival is just very, very exciting.
