Every man who knows how to read has it in his power to magnify himself, to multiply the ways in which he exists, to make his life full, significant and interesting.
To learn to read is to light a fire; every syllable that is spelled out is a spark.
Men of power have no time to read; yet the men who do not read are unfit for power.
Louisa May Alcott (from Rose in Bloom)
"I hope the reading will do as much for me as it seems to have done for you. I'm happy, but you are wise and good I want to be also."
