Oh Yes


I was searching through some old emails for my son's address written in Hangul, and found this message that he sent me last summer:


I heard of a quote by a Korean patriot, Ahn Jung-Gun.
He said, "Not reading a book, even for a day, makes me sick."
I though you would like it.
.
According to Ahn Jung-Gun's Wikipedia page, Ahn also wrote: "Unless reading everyday, thorns grow in the mouth."
.
Although my own response to a nonreading day is a moderate case of crankiness, I completely understand his sentiments.
