President Klaus Iohannis revealed on Facebook on April 23, the World Book Day, his favourite quote and encouraged Romanians to post the quote that best represents them or that inspired them the most.
“We were all at one point influenced by a certain book or inspired by a passage we identified with. On the World Book Day, post your favourite quote using the #Romaniaciteste hashtag (#Romaniareads – editor’s note),” Klaus Iohannis wrote on Facebook.
Iohannis posted his favourite quote: “Lost are only those battles you never start” – Mircea Eliade, Oceanografie.
Shortly afterwards, the #Romaniaciteste hashtag was used by hundreds of persons that posted their favourite quotes, following the President’s example.
In Romania, April 23 was declared the Romanian Librarian’s Day through government decision 293/14 April 2005, so that starting in 2005 April 23 marks the Librarian’s Day as well as the World Book and Copyright Day.
