A good book

When I open a fortune cookie, I generally hope to discover within the sort of fortune that tells me that I stand to gain something. I feel a bit cheated when I get a mere observation on life -- I don't see how that constitutes an actual fortune, and besides, I prefer to gain things. But I liked the observation that was stuck in the bag along with my beef and broccoli yesterday:

"A good book is the best of friends, the same today and forever."

The assertion is somewhat questionable, but the supporting logic is unassailable.
