“Words are, of course, the most powerful drug used by mankind. If history were taught in the form of stories, it would never be forgotten.” – Rudyard Kipling
I tend to agree with him on both counts, remembering as a kid that the history I read in the form of storybooks or even comics has stuck with me to this day, while some of the things I read in my history books long since have flown from my thoughts. And, like Kipling says, there have been times when I've had a sense of pure euphoria after reading a particularly powerful or thoughtful sentence or paragraph. And since I like to check things out from the library, the cost of this "high" was extremely reasonable as well.
Happy reading ... and writing.
