I was watching “A Tour of Wes Callihan’s Personal Library”
(Something I’ll admit I was just watching as I was impressed with this man’s gorgeous looking library and obvious love of books)
when I heard him say these words
(and I’ve listened to them multiple times now!):
“You should always have more books in your library than you have read. You should never have read all of your books. If you have read them all, you’re not buying fast enough. To have books on your shelves that you haven’t read is to have potential. It is to know you haven’t learned it all. It’s to still be able to wonder, to say, ‘No, I haven’t read everything.’ If you have read all the books in your library, you are in danger of thinking that you know everything. So buy books!
(starts at 18 mins 43 secs into the video)
This is a brilliant man!
I’m sure he said a lot of other learned things in his video, but I heard the message he had for me –
Hubby is looking panicked.
But I don’t have time to worry about that.
I have to
BUY BOOKS FASTER!!
Wes Callihan said so!
