We need the slower and more lasting stimulus of solitary reading as a relief from the pressure on eye, ear and nerves of the torrent of information and entertainment pouring from ever-open electronic jaws. It could end by stupefying us.

~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~

Whatever sentence will bear to be read twice, we may be sure was thought twice Henry David Thoreau quotes

~~~~~~~

When I am reading a book, whether wise or silly, it seems to me to be alive and talking to me.

~~~~~~~

When I read Copland, I really wanted Stallone’s part.

~~~~~~~

When I take up a book I have read before, I know what to expect; the satisfaction is not lessened by being anticipated. I shake hands with, and look our old tried and valued friend in the face,–compare notes and chat the hour away.

~~~~~~~

When in reading we meet with any maxim that may be of use, we should take it for our own, and make an immediate application of it, as we would of the advice of a friend whom we have purposely consulted.

~~~~~~~

When the last reader reads no more.

~~~~~~~

When the printing press was developed in the fifteenth century it was said that printed books would make reading and writing ‘the infatuation of people who have no business reading and writing.’

~~~~~~~

When what you read elevates your mind and fills you with noble aspirations, look for no other rule by which to judge a book; it is good, and is the work of a master-hand.

~~~~~~~

Who knows if Shakespear might not have thought less, if he had read more?

~~~~~~~

Who reads Incessantly, and to his reading brings not A spirit and judgment equal or superior, (And what he brings what need he elsewhere seek?) Uncertain and unsettled still remains, Deep versed in books and shallow in himself, Crude or intoxicate, collecting toys And trifles for choice matters, worth a sponge, As children gathering pebbles on the shore.

~~~~~~~

With a comic book, if you make it take place at night, it doesn’t cost you a penny more, … You can have rain and wind and sets that are vastly decorated, you can have great locations because you’re making it all up … it was a great opportunity to tell more of a true version of the story.

~~~~~~~

With Shakespeare and poetry, a new world was born. New dreams, new desires, a self consciousness was born. I desired to know to know myself in terms of the new standards set by these books.

There are three classes of readers; some enjoy without judgment; others judge without enjoyment; and some there are who judge while they enjoy, and enjoy while they judge. The latter class reproduces the work of art on which it is engaged. Its numbers are very small.

~~~~~~~

There can hardly be a stranger commodity in the world than books. Printed by people who don’t understand them; sold by people who don’t understand them; bound, criticized and read by people who don’t understand them; and now even writen by people who don’t understand them.

~~~~~~~

There is a gentle, but perfectly irresistible coercion in a habit of reading well directed, over the whole tenor of a man’s character and conduct, which is not the less effectual because it works insensibly, and because it is really the last thing he dreams of

~~~~~~~

There is a world of science necessary in choosing books. I have known some people in great sorrow fly to a novel, or the last light book in fashion. One might as well take a rose-draught for the plague! Light reading does not do when the heart is really heavy. I am told that Goethe, when he lost his son, took to study a science that was new to him. Ah! Goethe was a physician who knew what he was about.

~~~~~~~

There is no such things as a moral or an immoral book. Books are well written or badly written. That is all.

~~~~~~~

There was, it is said, a criminal in Italy who was suffered to make his choice between Guicciardini and the galleys. He chose the history. But the war of Pisa was too much for him; he changed his mind, and went to the oars.

~~~~~~~

They that have read about everything are thought to understand everything too; but it is not always so. Reading furnishes the mind only with the materials of knowledge; it is thinking that makes what we read ours. We are of the ruminating kind, and it is not enough to cram ourselves with a great load of collections,–we must chew them over again.

~~~~~~~

This novel is not to be tossed lightly aside, but hurled with great force.

~~~~~~~

Thou art the cause, O reader, of my dwelling on lighter topics, when I would rather handle serious ones. [Lat., Seria cum possim, quod delectantia malim Scribere, tu causa es lector.]

~~~~~~~

To read a writer is for me not merely to get an idea of what he says, but to go off with him, and travel in his company.

~~~~~~~

To read between the lines was easier than to follow the text.

~~~~~~~

To talk in public, to think in solitude, to read and to hear, to inquire and answer inquiries, is the business of the scholar.

~~~~~~~

Uncertain whose the narrowest span,–the clown unread, or half-read gentleman.

~~~~~~~

Verily, when thp day of judgement comes, we shall not be asked what we have read, but what we have done.

~~~~~~~

We are now in want of an art to teach how books are to be read rather than to read them. Such an art is practicable.

~~~~~~~

We are the children of a technological age. We have found streamlined ways of doing much of our routine work. Printing is no longer the only way of reproducing books. Reading them, however, has not changed; it is the same as it has always been, since Callimachus administered the great library in Alexandrea.

~~~~~~~

We could revolutionize education if we asked every person connected with the education of children, Read any good books lately?

~~~~~~~

We have not read an author till we have seen his object, whatever it may be, as he saw it.

~~~~~~~

We intended for the ‘Ultimate Spider-Man’

Something that everybody wants to have read and nobody wants to read.

~~~~~~~

STORY, n. A narrative, commonly untrue.

~~~~~~~

Studious let me sit, And hold high converse with the mighty Dead.

~~~~~~~

‘T is the good reader that makes the good book: a good head cannot read amiss.

~~~~~~~

That he that readeth may run over it. [Lat., Ut percurrat qui legerit eum.]

~~~~~~~

The art of reading is to skip judiciously.

~~~~~~~

The bookful blockhead ignorantly read, With loads of learned lumber in his head, With his own tongue still edifies his ears, And always list’ning to himself appears. All books he reads, and all he reads assails.

~~~~~~~

The books one reads in childhood, and perhaps most of all the bad and good bad books, create in one’s mind a sort of false map of the world, a series of fabulous countries into which one can retreat at odd moments throughout the rest of life…

~~~~~~~

The delight of opening a new pursuit, or a new course of reading, imparts the vivacity and novelty of youth even to old age.

~~~~~~~

The first class of readers may be compared to an hour-glass, their reading being as the sand; it runs in and runs out, and leaves not a vestige behind. A second class resembles a sponge, which imbibes everything, and returns it in nearly the same state, only a little dirtier. A third class is like a jelly-bag, which allows all that is pure to pass away, and retains only the refuse and dregs. The fourth class may be compared to the slave of Golconda, who, casting aside all that is worthless, preserves only the pure gems.

~~~~~~~

The greatest gift is a passion for reading. It is cheap, it consoles, it distracts, it excites, it gives you knowledge of the world and experience of a wide kind. It is a moral illumination.

~~~~~~~

The habit of reading is the only enjoyment in which there is no alloy; it lasts when all other pleasures fade.

~~~~~~~

The love of reading enables a man to exchange the wearisome hours of life which come to every one for hours of delight.

~~~~~~~

The man who reads only for improvement is beyond the hope of much improvement before he begins.

~~~~~~~

The man whose bosom neither riches nor luxury nor grandeur can render happy may, with a book in his hand, forget all his torments under the friendly shade of every tree; and experience pleasures as infinite as they are varied, as pure as they are lasting, as lively as they are unfading, and as compatible with every public duty as they are contributory to private happiness.

~~~~~~~

The mind should be accustomed to make wise reflections, and draw curious conclusions as it goes along; the habitude of which made Pliny the Younger affirm that he never read book so bad but he drew some profit from it.

~~~~~~~

The mind, relaxing into needful sport, Should turn to writers of an abler sort, Whose wit well managed, and whose classic style, Give truth a lustre, and make wisdom smile.

~~~~~~~

The poet can only write the poems; it takes the reader to complete the meaning.

~~~~~~~

The radical invents the views; When he has worn them out the conservative adopts them

~~~~~~~

The sagacious reader who is capable of reading between these lines what does not stand written in them, but is nevertheless implied, will be able to form some conception.

Read proudly–put the duty of being read invariably on the author. If he is not read, whose fault is it? I am quite ready to be charmed, but I shall not make-believe I am charmed.

~~~~~~~

Read, mark, learn, and inwardly digest.

~~~~~~~

Read, read, sirrah, and refine your appetite; learn to live upon instruction; frost your mind and mortify your flesh.

~~~~~~~

Readers are not sheep, and not every pen tempts them.

~~~~~~~

Reading a book gives us the habit of solitery reflection and true enjoyment.

~~~~~~~

Reading Chaucer is like brushing through the dewy grass at sunrise.

~~~~~~~

Reading is a dissuasion from immorality. Reading stands in the place of company.

~~~~~~~

Reading is an escape, an education, a delving into the brain of another human being on such an intimate level that every nuance of thought, every snapping of synapse, every slippery desire of the author is laid open before you like, well, a book.

~~~~~~~

Reading is essential for those who seek to rise above the ordinary. We must not permit anything to stand between us and the book that could change our lives.

~~~~~~~

Reading is sometimes an ingenious device for avoiding thought.

~~~~~~~

Reading is thinking with someone else’s head instead of one’s own.

~~~~~~~

Reading is to the mind, what exercise is to the body. As by the one, health is preserved, strengthened, and invigorated: by the other, virtue (which is the health of the mind) is kept alive, cherished, and confirmed.

~~~~~~~

Reading maketh a full man; conference a ready man; and writing an exact man. Francis Bacon, Sr. quotes

~~~~~~~

Reading not only enlarges and challenges the mind; it also engages and exercises the brain. Today’s youth who sits mesmerized by a television screen is not going to be tomorrow’s leader. Television watching is passive. Reading is active.

~~~~~~~

Reading nourisheth the wit; and when it is wearied with study, it refresheth it, yet not without study.

~~~~~~~

Reading without purpose is sauntering, not exercise. More is got from one book on which the thought settles for a definite end in knowledge, than from libraries skimmed over by a wandering eye. A cottage flower gives honey to the bee, a king’s garden none to the butterfly.

~~~~~~~

Sir, he hath never fed of the dainties that are bred in a book. He hath not eat paper, as it were; he hath not drunk ink. His intellect is not replenished; he is only an animal, only sensible in the duller parts.

~~~~~~~

Some members of the younger generation can move from comic books to science fiction to the Oresteia in two jumps.

~~~~~~~

Some read books only with a view to find fault, while others read only to be taught; the former are like venomous spiders, extracting a poisonous quality, where the latter, like the bees, sip out a sweet and profitable juice.

~~~~~~~

Some will read only old books, as if there were no valuable truths to be discovered in modern publications: others will only read new books, as if some valuable truths are not among the old. Some will not read a book because they know the author: others . . . would also read the man.

Men of power have no time to read; yet the men who do not read are unfit for power.

~~~~~~~

Milton almost requires a solemn service of music to be played before you enter upon him. But he brings his music, to which who listen had need bring docile thoughts and purged ears.

~~~~~~~

Mr. Johnson had never, by his own account, been a close student, and used to advise young people never to be without a book in their pocket, to be read at bye-times, when they had nothing else to do. ‘It has been by that means,’ said he to a boy at our house one day, ‘that all my knowledge has been gained, except what I have picked up by running about the world with my wits ready to observe, and my tongue ready to talk.’

~~~~~~~

Much depends upon when and where you read a book. In the five or six impatient minutes before the dinner is quite ready, who would think of taking up the Faerie Queen for a stopgap, or a volume of Bishop Andrews’s Sermons?

~~~~~~~

Much reading is like much eating,–wholly useless without digestion.

~~~~~~~

My books are water; those of the great geniuses are wine. (Fortunately) Everybody drinks water.

My job is about the most fun thing I do, but I have a broad set of interests, going places, reading things, doing things. Bill Gates quotes

~~~~~~~

Night after night, He sat and bleared his eyes with books.

~~~~~~~

No man can read with profit that which he cannot learn to read with pleasure.

~~~~~~~

No man reads a book of science from pure inclination. The books that we do read with pleasure are light compositions, which contain a quick succession of events.

~~~~~~~

Nothing, in truth, has such a tendency to weaken not only the powers of invention, but the intellectual powers in general, as a habit of extensive and various reading without reflection.

~~~~~~~

NOVEL, n. A short story padded.

~~~~~~~

Now, my young friends to whom I am addressing myself, with reference to this habit of reading, I make bold to tell you that it is your pass to the greatest, the purest, and the most perfect pleasure that God has prepared for His creatures.

~~~~~~~

Only one hour in the normal day is more pleasurable than the hours spent in bed with a book before going to sleep, and that is the hour spent in bed with a book after being called in the morning.

~~~~~~~

Parenthetical remarks (however relevant) are unnecessary.

~~~~~~~

People seldom read a book which is given to them; and few are given. The way to spread a work is to sell it at a low price. No man will send to buy a thing that costs even sixpence without an intention to read it.

~~~~~~~

Read an hour every day in your chosen field. This works out to about one book per week, 50 books per year, and will guarantee your success.

~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~

In reading the lives of great men, I found that the first victory they won was over themselves…self-discipline with all of them came first. Harry S Truman quotes

~~~~~~~

In science, read, by preference, the newest works; in literature, the oldest. The classic literature is always modern.

~~~~~~~

Learn to read slow; all other graces Will follow in their proper places.

Many readers judge of the power of a book by the shock it gives their feelings.

~~~~~~~

Men must read for amusement as well as for knowledge.

I have not placed reading before praying because I regard it more important, but because, in order to pray aright, we must understand what we are praying for. Angelina Grimke quotes

~~~~~~~

I haven’t read anything for a while, but I always flip through X-Men to keep up to date. Spider-Man, also.

~~~~~~~

I hope and hoping feeds my pain I weep and weeping feeds my failing heart I laugh but the laughter does not pass within I burn but the burning makes no mark outside

I read hard, or not at all; never skimming, never turning aside to merely inciting books; and Plato, Aristotle, Butler, Thucydides, Sterne, Jonathan Edwards, have passed like the iron atoms of the blood into my mental constitution.

I seek in the reading of my books only to please myself by an irreproachable diversion; or if I study it is for no other science than that which treats of the knowledge of myself, and instructs me how to die and live well.

~~~~~~~

I should as soon think of swimming across the Charles River when I wish to go to Boston, as of reading all my books in originals, when I have them rendered for me in my mother tongue.

~~~~~~~

I think reading is important for a variety of things. I mean, first of all, it’s a way to get information and find out what’s going on in the world. But also, it helps your imagination.

~~~~~~~

I took a speed reading course and read ‘war and peace’ in twenty minutes. IT involves Russia.

Ernest Hemingway quotes

~~~~~~~

If there were no readers there certainly would be no writers. Clearly, therefore, the existence of writers depends upon the existence of readers; and, of course, as the cause must be antecedent to the effect, readers existed before writers.

Force yourself to reflect on what you read, paragraph by paragraph.

~~~~~~~

From numberless books the fluttering reader, idle and inconstant, bears away the bloom that only clings to the outer leaf; but genius has its nectaries, delicate glands, and secrecies of sweetness, and upon these the thoughtful mind must settle in its labor, before the choice perfume of fancy and wisdom is drawn forth.

~~~~~~~

Given the books of a man, it is not difficult, I think, to detect therein the personality of the man, and the station in life to which he was born.

~~~~~~~

Graceful, ingenious, illuminative reading.

~~~~~~~

Have you ever rightly considered what the mere ability to read means? That it is the key which admits us to the whole world of thought and fancy and imagination? to the company of saint and sage, of the wisest and the wittiest at their wisest and wittiest moment? That it enables us to see with the keenest eyes, hear with the finest ears, and listen to the sweetest voices of all time? More than that, it annihilates time and space for us.

His classical reading is great: he can quote Horace, Juvenal, Ovid, and Martial by rote. He has read Metaphysics * * * Spinoza and Kant; And Theology too; I nave heard him descant Upon Basil and Jerome. Antiquities, art, He is fond of. He knows the old masters by heart, And his taste is refined.

~~~~~~~

How well he is read, to reason against reading!

I cannot sit and think; books think for me.

~~~~~~~

I didn’t have time to write a short letter, so I wrote a long one instead.

~~~~~~~

Books afford the surest relief in the most melancholy moments.

Books are to be called for and supplied on the assumption that the process of reading is not a half-sleep, but in the highest sense an exercise, a gymnastic struggle; that the reader is to do something for himself.

~~~~~~~

Books have always a secret influence on the understanding; we cannot at pleasure obliterate ideas: he that reads books of science, though without any desire fixed of improvement, will grow more knowing; he that entertains himself with moral or religious treatises, will imperceptibly advance in goodness; the ideas which are often offered to the mind, will at last find a lucky moment when it is disposed to receive them.

~~~~~~~

Books worth reading once are worth reading twice; and what is most important of all, the masterpieces of literature are worth reading a thousand times.

~~~~~~~

But truths on which depends our main concern, That ’tis our shame and misery not to learn, Shine by the side of every path we tread With such a lustre he that runs may read.

~~~~~~~

By conversing with the mighty dead, we imbibe sentiment with knowledge. We become strongly attached to those who can no longer either hurt or serve us, except through the influence which they exert over the mind. We feel the presence of that power which gives immortality to human thoughts and actions, and catch the flame of enthusiasm from all nations and ages.

~~~~~~~

By reading a man does, as it were, antedate his life, and make himself contemporary with the ages past; and this way of running up beyond one’s nativity is better than Plato’s pre-existence.

~~~~~~~

Cuba achieved 100% literacy without spending a penny, simply asking each literate Cuban to teach 2 others to read.
