“Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counsellors, and the most patient of teachers.”

— Charles William Eliot (American educator, president for Harvard University for 40 years)

In this column, we would like to share interesting books and to exchange feedback and comments.

Book reading is indeed a very accessible hobby which can help us to enrich our knowledge and spirit. There is famous saying from a Chinese poet from the Sung Dynasty, Huang Tingjian (黃庭堅) : 三日不讀書,便覺語言無味,面目可憎。(Three days without reading a book, conversations will become no taste and the face and the eyes will become unappealing).

We would like to stimulate more interesting book discovery and comment sharing. Please feel free to share your comments too.
