Writing is perhaps the greatest of human inventions, binding together people, citizens of distant epochs, who never knew one another. Books break the shackles of time–proof that humans can work magic.

All I had to do was open a book – to see the stories bleeding from page to page. To see the memories etched onto paper.

― Tahereh Mafi

Listen to the MUSTNT’S, child,
Listen to the DON’TS
Listen to the SHOULDN’TS
The IMPOSSIBLES, the WON’TS 
Listen to the NEVER HAVES 
Then listen close to me– 
Anything can happen, child, 
ANYTHING can be.

–Shel Silverstein
