Famous quotes containing the word read:

    Now folks, I hereby declare the first church of Tombstone, which ain’t got no name yet or no preacher either, officially dedicated. Now I don’t pretend to be no preacher, but I’ve read the Good Book from cover to cover and back again, and I nary found one word agin dancin’. So we’ll commence by havin’ a dad blasted good dance.
    Samuel G. Engel (1904–1984)

    Who will in fairest book of Nature know
    How virtue may best lodged in beauty be,
    Let him but learn of love to read in thee,
    Stella, those fair lines which true goodness show.
    There shall he find all vices’ overthrow,
    Not by rude force, but sweetest sovereignty
    Of reason,
    Sir Philip Sidney (1554–1586)

    You have observed a skilful man reading Virgil. Well, that author is a thousand books to a thousand persons. Take the book into your two hands, and read your eyes out; you will never find what I find.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
