Reading

Famous quotes containing the word reading:

    I loved reading, and had a great desire of attaining knowledge; but whenever I asked questions of any kind whatsoever, I was always told, “such things were not proper for girls of my age to know.”... For “Miss must not enquire too far into things, it would turn her brain; she had better mind her needlework, and such things as were useful for women; reading and poring on books would never get me a husband.”
    Sarah Fielding (1710–1768)

    There are worse crimes than burning books. One of them is not reading them.
    Joseph Brodsky (b. 1940)

    You in the West have a problem. You are unsure when you are being lied to, when you are being tricked. We do not suffer from this; and unlike you, we have acquired the skill of reading between the lines.
    Zdenek Urbának (b. 1917)
