I went to my fraternity’s yearly fundraiser dinner last night. My intentions: eat some food and hang out with the guys. I look forward to this event for another reason as well, chatting with the guys’ parents. I was talking with one of my brother’s dad, who is about as cool as they come, when he dropped a pretty good nugget of wisdom in my lap.
A man who does not read good books is no better off than a man who can not read. –Mark Twain
Having recently started reading again, or rather reading things other than techie stuff, I found the quote rather profound. Think about it for a second and let it sit a while.
In the end we had a good time chatting about recent books, my recent learning experience starting a business, and my girlfriend.
