One Magical Instant


Steve McCurry Curated

Rome, Italy

At one magical instant the page of a book –
that string of confused, alien ciphers –

shivered into meaning.
Words spoke to you, gave up their secrets;

At that moment, whole universes opened.
You became, irrevocably, a reader.
– Alberto Manguel

New York, New York, USA

William Wegman, an artist and photographer, has been photographing his Weimaraners for over forty years.


We read to know we’re not alone.
– C.S. Lewis

Yangon, Myanmar

Hong Kong, China

A great book that comes from a great
thinker is a ship of thought,
deep freighted with truth and beauty.

– Pablo Neruda

Havana, Cuba


Books are the plane, and the train, and the road.
They are the destination and the journey.
They are home.
– Anna Quindlen


Reading is the sole means by which we slip, involuntarily,
often helplessly, into another’s skin,
another’s voice, another’s soul.
