Quote of the Week – Mason Cooley

This week’s quote was sent to me by Bjorn Ansbro author of the children’s picture books “This is Dot” and “Dot Wonders.”

“Reading gives us someplace to go when we have to stay where we are.”

– Mason Cooley

Mason Cooley was an American Aphorist. What’s an aphorist you ask (well maybe you didn’t ask, but I sure did)? An aphorist is a person who writes aphorisms and the definition of an aphorism is  “a short pithy saying expressing a general truth” (taken from the Free Dictionary).
