Quotes on Reading

"Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend. Inside a dog, it's too dark to read." Grouch Marx

"In a very real sense, people who have read good literature have lived more than people who cannot or will not read....It is not true that we have only one life to live; if we can read, we can live as many more lives and as many kinds of lives as we wish." S.I. Hayakawa

"When I am dead, I hope it will be said: His sins were scarlet, but his books were read." Hilaire Belloc
