Quote du jour/Storm Jameson


We need the slower and more lasting stimulus of solitary reading as a relief from the pressure on eye, ear and nerves of the torrent of information and entertainment pouring from ever-open electronic jaws. It could end by stupefying us.
(Margaret) Storm Jameson (1891-1986)
