In a recent interview for Time magazine, Bill Gates was asked “Do you think reading has been essential to your success, and is it to others?” Gates responded: “Absolutely. You don’t really start getting old until you stop learning. Every book teaches me something new or helps me see things differently. I was lucky to have parents who encouraged me to read. Reading fuels a sense of curiosity about the world, which I think helped drive me forward in my career and in the world that I do now with my foundation.”
