“Education has produced a vast population able to read but unable to distinguish what is worth reading.”
~ George Macaulay Trevelyan
Easy reading is damn hard writing.
“When the Day of Judgment dawns and people, great and small, come marching in to receive their heavenly rewards, the Almighty will gaze upon the mere bookworms and say to Peter, “Look, these need no reward. We have nothing to give them. They have loved reading.”
“Learn as much by writing as by reading.”
