Margaret Fuller; was not only a journalist, she was the first female full-time book reviewer in journalism. By the time she was thirty, she was considered the best-read person in New England and she became the first woman who was allowed use of the Harvard College Library. She was also a staunch women’s rights activist. Margaret is the author of the famous quote:
“Today a reader, tomorrow a leader”.
I couldn’t agree more with what Margaret Fuller said: “If you are a leader, if you want to be one, you have to read. It’s not a bonus, it’s an absolute requirement. You cannot grow in your leadership without learning from others and that requires reading”, to acquire new insights, you have to read as much as you can.
I love reading, I always have. My mom made me a member of the local library when I was two or so because I devoured books. Not that I could read at two, but from the moment I could read, I’ve been reading multiple books a week. And I have learned so much by just reading. I have learned from world leaders and politicians, from and pastors, from military commanders and business leaders, from novelists and simple house wives. Leaders are readers, if you want to learn, you have to read.
