There Is No Frigate Like a Book

A book is compared to a ship because it will bring you anywhere you want to
go without the use of money.
A book is compared to a horse because after reading page 1, you are jumping
to the next page just like a prancing horse.
A book is compared to a cart because a book can carry your soul to another
dimension of life like a place of fantasy.

Very simple.. very true, and very beautiful. There is no frigate like a
book. Absolutely, it is the only means that can take you ages back in time,
and ages ahead in the future. As a magical carpet it carries you to the
wonders of the far lost worlds, through the dark jungle with its old trees,
above the golden shore of the unknown islands, to the mysterious lights of
tomorrow's worlds...
