“A truly good book teaches me better than to read it. I must soon lay it down, and commence living on its hint….what I begin by reading, I must finish by acting.” 
~Henry David Thoreau~  
“So let us wage a glorious struggle against illiteracy, poverty and terrorism. Let us pick up our books and our pens, they are the most powerful weapons. One child, one teacher, one book, one pen can change the world.
Education is a powerful solution.”

~Malala Yousafzai~
