Charles Langbridge Morgan Quote

“A book is the only place in which you can examine a fragile thought without breaking it, or explore an explosive idea without fear it will go off in your face... one of the few havens remaining where a man's mind can get both provocation and privacy.”

~ Charles Langbridge Morgan

Don't forget about the Internet, too! Of course, what we read and write here is logged somewhere else in case 'officials' 'need' to check to make sure we are not reading or writing something we are not 'supposed' to...

Books: good... but no, it is not the "only place" for these experiences... try one on one human interaction too...
