~~~~~~~

When I am dead, I hope it may be said: ‘His sins were scarlet, but his books were read.’

~~~~~~~

When I get a little money, I buy books; and if any is left I buy food and clothes.

~~~~~~~

When I read a book I seem to read it with my eyes only, but now and then I come across a passage, perhaps only a phrase, which has a meaning for me, and it becomes part of me.
