There are a great number of books available at the library. Some books best quality is the dust jacket the covers it. Many others can be summarized in a few words. Still others you can skip multiple chapters and have a good understanding of the book.
Out of all the books in the world, only a small percentage of books exist that you pick up and cannot put it down. Smaller still is the percentage of books that you crave to read over again and share with friends.
As it is with books, so it is with people. There are billions of people in the world and some people best quality is their cover on the outside – whether that is their looks, body, clothes, house or car. However, these outer appearances are the only real quality they possess. They are empty, shallow, and superficial. Spending any time with these people will prove to be a waste of effort, time and money.
A great deal of other people can easily be summarized or categorized by a few words that accurately depict the characteristics of an individual – what you read in the summary is exactly what you get and don’t expect anything more. Spending time with them is exactly how you anticipated – nothing more or less. If you know how the story ends, why waste time with this one?
Yet others you can observe from a safe distance and know everything about him/her – kind of like skipping chapters in a book. You could not talk to them for months or years and not have missed anything. There is nothing there to discover.
There are limited amounts of people that can captivate my attention and keep it. Yet only one that I cannot put down and I crave to read over and share with family and friends.
I am still looking for that book to read. I am through with fancy covers and skipping chapters.
"If one cannot enjoy reading a book over and over again, there is no use in reading it at all."
