Musing Mondays (5)

This week’s musing is a read and respond:

I was reading Eleanor Roosevelt’s book, “You Learn By Living“, via Google Books the other day, and came across a quote that really struck a chord with me. The quote said this:

“What counts in the long run , is not what you read; it is what you sift through in your own mind; it is the ideas and impressions that are aroused in you by your reading.”

What do you think about this quote? Do you believe this to be true? If so, why and how? And, if not, why not?

This quote is true for me because reading brings me joy not because of the literal words on the pages but because of what the words evoke in my brain; whether it be emotions, thoughts, reflections, etc. Reading a book for me is an escape from real life, a fantasy that’s different from what I’m used to and finally it also helps to relax me and clear my mind of the day’s troubles.
