"Why are not more gems [quotes] from our great authors scattered over the country? Great books are not in everybody's reach; and though it is better to know them thoroughly than to know them only here and there, yet it is a good work to give a little to those who have neither time nor means to get more. Let every bookworm, when in any fragrant, scarce old tome he discovers a sentence, a story, and an illustration that does his heart good, hasten to give it." - Samuel Taylor Coleridge

"Reading furnishes the mind only with the materials of knowledge; it is thinking that makes what we read ours.

[Quote No.19717] Need Area: Fun > Books
"There are four kinds of readers. The first is like the hourglass; and their reading being as the sand, it runs in and runs out, and leaves not a vestige behind. A second is like the sponge, which imbibes everything, and returns it in nearly the same state, only a little dirtier. A third is like a jelly bag, allowing all that is pure to pass away, and retaining only the refuse and dregs. And the fourth is like the slaves in the diamond mines of Golconda, who, casting aside all that is worthless, retain only pure gems." - Samuel Taylor Coleridge

"[Skepticism is vital to discover the real truth:] Think as well as read, and when you read yield not your minds to the passive impressions, which others may make upon them. Hear what they have to say; but examine it, weigh it, and judge for yourself. This will enable you to make a right use of books: to use them as helpers, not as guides to your understanding; as counsellors, not as dictators of what you are to think and believe." - Tryon Edwards
