"Life being very short, and the quiet hours of it few, we
ought to waste none of them in reading valueless books."
"I would rather read something inferior than nothing at all.
Sometimes the reader is not interested in being enlightened,
uplifted, or even entertained. He wants merely to escape
for a brief interval from the world which is suddenly too
much with him."
