Famous quotes containing the word reading:

    Much reading has brought upon us a learned barbarism.
    —G.C. (Georg Christoph)

    ‘Tis to rebuke a vicious taste which has crept into thousands besides herself,—of reading straight forwards, more in quest of the adventures, than of the deep erudition and knowledge which a book of this cast, if read over as it should be, would infallibly impart.
    Laurence Sterne (1713–1768)

    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)
