Words of Wisdom

Reading and writing, like everything else, improve with practice. And, of course, if there are no young readers and writers, there will shortly be no older ones. Literacy will be dead, and democracy- - which many believe goes hand in hand with it -- will be dead as well.

— Margaret Atwood
