It's Monday and it's time for ... Borrowed Words

I have not posted any quotes for the longest time here but with this first 'Borrowed Words' in new year I hope to be more diligent about my weekly quote feature.
While reading  The Street of a Thousand Blossoms I came upon words that characterized one person's attitude towards reading and it is something completely different from my own, in fact, this sentiment is something I don't even fully comprehend in a way that living this way is unimaginable to me. I give you words borrowed from The Street of a Thousand Blossoms by Gail Tsukiyama:

In her mind, life was too short to

sit in classrooms, laboring over

words and numbers in

books. She preferred to live the

experiences herself, not just read

about them.

How about you? Do you agree, disagree or do you see the validity of it?
