There are many methods for predicting the future. For example, you can read horoscopes, tea leaves, tarot cards, or crystal balls. Collectively, these methods are known as "nutty methods." Or you can put well-researched facts into sophisticated computer models, more commonly referred to as "a complete waste of time."
Scott Adams quotes
You don't have to burn books to destroy a culture. Just get people to stop reading them.
Ray Bradbury quotes
I have not placed reading before praying because I regard it more important, but because, in order to pray aright, we must understand what we are praying for.
Angelina Grimke quotes
Reading furnishes the mind only with materials of knowledge; it is thinking that makes what we read ours.
John Locke quotes
It is a good thing for an uneducated man to read books of quotations. The quotations, when engraved upon the memory, give you good thoughts. They also make you anxious to read the authors and look for more.
Winston Churchill quotes
A truly good book teaches me better than to read it. I must soon lay it down, and commence living on its hint. What I began by reading, I must finish by acting.
Henry David Thoreau quotes
If I read a book and it makes my whole body so cold no fire can ever warm me, I know that is poetry.
Emily Dickinson quotes
Buying books would be a good thing if one could also buy the time to read them in: but as a rule the purchase of books is mistaken for the appropriation of their contents.
Arthur Schopenhauer quotes
The oldest books are only just out to those who have not read them.
Samuel Butler quotes
To be a well-flavored man is the gift of fortune, but to write or read comes by nature.
William Shakespeare quotes
