**Blaise Pascal

The Big Picture

“You must understand the whole of life, not just one little part of it. That is why you must read, that is why you must look at the skies, that is why you must sing and dance, and write poems and suffer and understand, for all that is life.”

** Jiddu Krishnamurti

Different Readers

No two persons ever read the same book.
