Found this while I was in Lisbon. Love his simple lines.
A great book is…
- One that contains a simple and original idea presented with clarity and great power.
- One that connects with the reader, asserting its world directly into the reader’s mind.
- One that makes the world seem larger and more interesting.
- One written with humor and a light touch.
- One that is a realization of a complete but very different world.
