Quoted: Alberto Manguel on Reading as Citizenship

MEME-PD-Alberto-Manguel“Our actions must be justified by our literature and our literature must bear witness to our actions. Therefore to act as citizens, in times of peace as in times of war, is in some sense an extension of our reading, since our books hold the possibility of guiding us through the experience and knowledge of others, allowing us the intuition of the uncertain future and the lesson of an  immutable past.” ~Alberto Manguel
