Reading Quotes



Reading is to the mind what exercise

is to the body.

Richard Steele, Tatler, 1710



...it doesn't really require a lot of imagination to watch television, but it does to read. ...I believe that's probably one of the reasons that you see that creative people tend to be readers, because they're exercising their mind.

Dr. Benjamin S. Carson

Pediatric Neurosurgeon



"A book that is shut

is but a block."

Thomas Fuller



TV

If kids are entertained by two letters, imagine the fun they'll have with twenty-six.  Open your child's imagination.

Open a book.

Author Unknown



I find television to be very educating.  Every time somebody turns on the set, I go in the other room and read a book.
Groucho Marx



You may have

tangible wealth untold;

Caskets of jewels

and coffers of gold.

Richer than I

you can never be -

I had a mother

who read to me.

Strickland Gillilan


 

“The things I want to know are in books;

my best friend is

the man who'll get me a book I ain't read.”

Abraham Lincoln

Austin Phelps

 


“You're the same today as you'll be in five years except for the

the books you read.”

Charlie "Tremendous" Jones

 


“No matter how busy you may think you are,

you must find

time for reading,

or surrender yourself to self-chosen ignorance.”

Confucius

Emilie Buchwald

Elizabeth Hardwick

 


“There are many little ways to enlarge your child's world. Love of books is the best of all.”

Jacqueline Kennedy



“There is no substitute

for books in the

life of a child.”

May Ellen Chase

 


"A house without books

is like a room

without windows."

Heinrich Mann



Far more seemly were it for thee to have thy study full of books, than thy purse full of money.

John Lyly

is good for him.”

Maya Angelou
