Wicked people never have time for reading.
It’s one of the reasons for their wickedness.

Never trust anyone who has not brought a book with them.

Reading is one form of escape. Running for your life is another.
― Lemony Snicket
A man of my acquaintance once wrote a poem called “The Road Less Traveled”, describing a journey he took through the woods along a path most travelers never used. The poet found that the road less traveled was peaceful but quite lonely, and he was probably a bit nervous as he went along, because if anything happened on the road less traveled, the other travelers would be on the road more frequently traveled and so couldn’t hear him as he cried for help. Sure enough, that poet is dead.

Lemony Snicket is a pen name of American novelist Daniel Handler (born February 28, 1970).
Snicket is the author of several children’s biographies, serving as the narrator of A Series of Unfortunate Events (his best-known work) and appearing as a character within the series. Because of this, the name Lemony Snicket may refer to both a fictional character and a real person.
