I Can Read

The red poster above hangs in my guest bedroom. I've written about it here before- it's a reprint of a WWII British government propaganda poster, meant to cheer up morale in the face of the looming bombing of London.
This yellow poster makes me laugh every time.
I once wrote this on my mirror in my high school bedroom. A few weeks later I noticed the attribution had been written in by someone else- my brother. I never knew he read Kerouac, or really much at all.

Right, J Thornton?
Dr. Tran quoted Gandhi for us: There is enough for everyone's need, but not enough for everyone's greed. The problem isn't quantity, it's distribution.

And it was:)

I'm assuming you mean the "reading is sexy one" is the one that I would agree with. And yes I do.

I love the "you are not what you own" and the Ghandi quote. And thanks for reminding me that Matt added Kerouac's name to the quote on your mirror. That makes me smile.
