Andreyev on Reading

I think most people who read this blog would be interested in reading Leonid Andreyev's thoughts on reading:

This is the divine capacity of a supple, exceedingly cultivated mind – that of reincarnation! You live through a thousand lives, descending into the darkness of hell and then reaching the clear mountain heights, embracing the infinite in one glance. If man is destined to become God, his throne shall be a book. (p. 43, The Thought)
