Watching a scene from a film in slow motion is possible

Watching a scene from a film in slow motion is possible, but there’s an unreal air to it; reading a passage from a book slowly does nothing to rob the words of their power. A film presents images; a book creates images inside the reader, with the reader’s active participation. Books are good for your brain.
Lewis Buzbee
Gardening is an active participation in The deepest mysteries of the universe.
Thomas Berry

Nicholas Sparks

Herb Kelleher
Do more than belong: participate. Do more than care: help. Do more than believe: practice. Do more than be fair: be kind. Do more than forgive: forget. Do more than dream: work.
William Arthur Ward
