“Reading books is an antidote to urgency and chaos because it
cannot be rushed. Every book has its own rhythm and a physical
intimacy that E-mail and similar instant information can never
achieve. Media glut often confuses information with
understanding. Just when you seem to be most pressed, books
miraculously expand time for reflection, cogitation, and mental
rest.”

 – Richard E. Cytowic, The Man Who Tasted Shapes.
