  1. Love the Thomas Carlyle quote, that's exactly how I felt about books in school and I've always loved to read. School about killed that joy.

  2. My vote goes to Carlyle as well.

  3. I think it would be very hard to disagree. This is one of the best quotes ever. I loved school but life has taught me so much more. And all the books I read. ;)

    Happy Reading,
