Quote of the Day (Jorge Luis Borges, on Reading)

“To me, reading has been a way of living. I think the only possible fate for me was a literary life. I can’t think of myself in a bookless world. I need books. They mean everything to me.”—Argentine writer Jorge Luis Borges (1899-1986), quoted in Michiko Kakutani, The Poet at the Piano (1988)
