Quote: Preface to Amy Carmichael's Biography

Here is a convicting quote.  It touches on why the author writes and how we should read.  Is this how I approach books?
"In spite of much that militates against quietness there are people who still read books.  They are the people who keep me going.  I write especially for those who bring to their reading a mind not hidebound by the sensibilities of their time, but prepared to contemplate the Eternally Relevant; to seek in this book specifically the truth and the hidden meaning of a single life."
~Elisabeth Elliot, preface A Chance to Die: The Life and Legacy of Amy Carmichael
