For me, reading is an essential and beloved activity. It has always been and it always will be. I used to read a lot as a kid, as a teenager often late into the night, as a college student on crowded streetcars and buses, juggling the book in one hand and holding on to the rail with the other. I still do – all of the above. My days don’t feel complete unless they are finished with reading.

Recently I’ve been thinking a lot about how to make the most out of my days. Realizing that everything we go through in our lives lead us to the priceless moments of living, we should focus on not missing them. And we shouldn’t make our lives complicated.
“As human beings, our greatness lies not so much in being able to remake the world […] as in being able to remake ourselves.” — Mahatma Gandhi
