A capacity, and taste, for reading gives access to whatever has already been discovered by others.
Reading is to the mind what exercise is to the body.

It is what you read when you don’t have to that determines what you will be when you can’t help it.
The man who does not read good books has no advantage over the man who can’t read them.
Today a reader, tommorow a leader.
There is more treasure in books than in all the pirate’s loot on Treasure Island.
Don’t read a book and be a follower; read a book and be a student.
