They Read, and Were Healed

When we take a book into our hands to read, the thoughts pressed between its covers begin to go to work for us. For instance, many times adventure in a book unfastens the mind from its mooring in a mental backwater. Inspiration and beauty lift the heart into a natural altitude of hope and trust. Science is an ever-filling well of facts from which great benefits to humanity are drawn. Such thoughts as these are found in books.

A man once borrowed a book which became so interesting to him that he read it nearly all his waking hours for several weeks. When the man began, he was a hopeless sufferer from asthma and also from consumption, which was said to be hereditary. When he put the book down he was so much better that he and his wife threw away all the medicines in the home, and he was completely restored to health in a few months.
