Why Read a Book?

Books are the best of things, well used, abused, among the worst.  What is the right use? ... They are for nothing but to inspire.  I had better never see a book, than to be warped by its attraction clean out of my own orbit, and made a satellite instead of a system.                                                                                                                                                 --- EMERSON

Life is a Bicycle does not, in itself, possess the power to alter matter, objects, or the state of one's living conditions.  But, it sincerely aspires to have the power to alter one's state of mind, which in-turn holds the distinct power to alter matter and thus, one's environment. We know that behind every result, resides an action, and the the ancestor of every action is a thought.  

Life is a Bicycle cheers you on to trust yourself - to pursue, then find your unique orbit of individuality.  And then to have the courage to resolutely remain in that true and authentic orbit.  For the world holds many illusions seemingly designed to lead you elsewhere. Your authenticity, steeped in self-awareness and self-reliance, is where your ultimate power resides.
