I was reading a little bit of a Carl Sagan’s Book to our son. Our son asked me to reread a couple of quotes.

We are like butterflies who flutter for day and think it is forever”

“Books permit us to voyage through time, to tap the wisdom of our ancestors”

We then had a long chat about life, death and living forever. Cryogenics came up.

It got me thinking maybe books are a better bet than cryogenics. If you are talented enough to become a book author then your words can live forever. Books are so much cheaper. Books are not as frigidly cold and far more illuminating. I think Carl would vote for books.

Thank you for reading this

  1. Your son, I do believe, is intellectually far above me! And I like your take on books … if you could see my home, with books occupying every square inch of shelf space and the overflow stacked in every corner … you would know that books are my vice (well, besides smoking and wine 😉 ) Good job, Dad!!!
