The late Jim Rohn, America’s Foremost Business Philosopher said “All of the books that we will ever need to make us as rich, as healthy, as happy, as powerful, as sophisticated and as successful as we want to be have already been written”. Charlie Tremendous Jones said “You will be the same person in five years time as you are today except for the books you read and the people you meet”. Sir William Waller, said “As I study my books, I can call up the ablest spirits, the most learned philosophers, the wisest counsellors, the greatest generals, and make them serviceable to me”.
Whatever it is you are after in life, you can predict and guarantee your success by having regular intercourse with superior minds. Show me your books and I will predict your future. There is a great wealth within the reach of the poorest farmer and day laborer in this age that kings in olden times could not possess, and that is the wealth of a well-read, well cultured mind.
No one can keep a determined, ambitious person who have taken solace in books from success. Put stumbling blocks in his way and he takes them as stepping stones. Take away his money but give him his books, and he will turn the situation around. Put him in a log cabin in the wilderness, and one day, you will find him in the White House.
Through books you can profit from the wisdom of Einstein, Edison, Emerson, Shakespeare, Carnegie, Lincoln, and come into the realization of the life expected of the sons and daughters of the supreme intelligence we call God.
The truth is no one has the power to change your life, but books certainly can. They possess great powers beyond human comprehension. We may temporarily be poor, and yet be in the best society in the world, in books. Possessing them, we may live in palaces, converse with princes, be familiar with royalty, and associate with the greatest and noblest of all time.
It was the power on the pages of books that lifted Booker T. Washington who was born a slave to the same table dining with President Roosevelt and President Taft. It was also this same power that lifted Lincoln the poor boy from the cabin and placed him on the highest throne in the white house.
No wonder James Freeman Clarke said When I consider what some books have done for the world, and what they are doing, how they keep up our hope, awaken new courage and faith, soothe pain, give an ideal life, create new worlds of beauty, bring down truths from heaven, I give eternal blessings for this gift.
Books are friends to the lonely, companions to the deserted, joy to the joyless, hope to the hopeless, good cheer to the disheartened, a helper to the helpless. They bring light into darkness, and sunshine into our shadows.
Make good use of them and thou shall be wise.
