Words

“There’s a sucker born every minute.”

And it seems it is us.  The Yale Book of Quotations, edited by Fred R. Shapiro, tells us that many of our most beloved quotes are –well– fiction.

Which makes me think about the power of words. They take on a life of their own once written down.  Books can be comforting, inspiring, educational, stimulating, thought-provoking, exciting, funny…   They can take on a life of their own and make their way into the public reality.  What are the books that changed your life?
