Enlarging windows

Why do we read?

The nearest I have yet got to answer is that we seek an enlargement of our being. We want to be more than ourselves. Each of us by nature sees the whole world from one point of view with a perspective and a selectiveness peculiar to himself…

We want to see with other eyes, to imagine with other imaginations, to feel with other hearts, as well as with our own… We demand windows.

C.S. Lewis
