#4384 Confucius

The administration of government lies in getting proper men. Such men are to be got by means of the ruler's own character. That character is to be cultivated by his treading in the ways of duty. And the treading those ways of duty is to be cultivated by the cherishing of benevolence. .

#5037 Bill Gates

All poets who, when reading from their own works, experience a choked feeling, are major. For that matter, all poets who read from their own works are major, whether they choke or not. .

Emo Philips Quotes about reading
#8186 H. L. Mencken

I was at the job of reading it for days and days, endlessly daunted and halted by its laborious dullness, its flatulent fatuity, its almost fabulous inconsequentiality. (On H. G. Wells' Joan and Peter) Ch. 2, "The Late Mr. Wells" .

#9971 Alice's Adventures in Wonderland

Alice was beginning to get very tired of sitting by her sister on the bank, and having nothing to do: once or twice she had peeped into the book her sister was reading, but it had no pictures or conversations in it, 'and what is the use of a book,' thought Alice, 'without pictures or conversations?' .

#10027 Alice's Adventures in Wonderland

"Will you walk a little faster?" said a whiting to a snail. "There's a porpoise close behind us, and he's treading on my tail. See how eagerly the lobsters and the turtles all advance! They are waiting on the shingle — will you come and join the dance? Will you, won't you, will you, won't you, will you join the dance? .

#10064 Computers

#10157 Benjamin Franklin

The Faith you mention has doubtless its use in the World. I do not desire to see it diminished, nor would I endeavour to lessen it in any Man. But I wish it were more productive of good Works, than I have generally seen it: I mean real good Works, Works of Kindness, Charity, Mercy, and Publick Spirit; not Holiday-keeping, Sermon-Reading or Hearing; performing Church Ceremonies, or making long Prayers, filled with Flatteries and Compliments, despis’d even by wise Men, and much less capable of pleasing the Deity. The worship of God is a Duty; the hearing and reading of Sermons may be useful; but, if Men rest in Hearing and Praying, as too many do, it is as if a Tree should Value itself on being water’d and putting forth Leaves, tho’ it never produc’d any Fruit. .

Benjamin Franklin Quotes about reading
#10512 W. H. Auden

In general, when reading a scholarly critic, one profits more from his quotations than from his comments. .

#15368 John F. Kennedy

The deadly arms race, and the huge resources it absorbs, have too long overshadowed all else we must do. We must prevent that arms race from spreading to new nations, to new nuclear powers and to the reaches of outer space. .

John F. Kennedy Quotes about reading
#16065 Ludwig Wittgenstein

I would really like to slow down the speed of reading with continual punctuation marks. For I would like to be read slowly. (As I myself read.) .

Under a spreading chestnut-tree The village smithy stands; The smith, a mighty man is he, With large and sinewy hands; And the muscles of his brawny arms Are strong as iron bands. .

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow Quotes about reading
#19881 E. M. Forster

Always fatuity, vulgarity, as soon as human passion is touched. [...] Just as someis of the eye (form, colour) and some of the ear, sois of the palate. Not only has he constant reference to its pleasures, but the general sensation after reading him is one of tasting. 'What's the harm?' Well, taste for some reason or the other can't carry one far into the world of beauty—that reason being perhaps that though you don't want comradership there you do want the possibility of comradership, and A cannot swallow B's mouthful by any possibility:....and this exclusiveness (to maunder on) also attaches to the physical side ofthough not the least to the spiritual. .

E. M. Forster Quotes about reading
#19974 C. S. Lewis

My dear Wormwood, I note what you say about guiding your patient's reading and taking care that he sees a good deal of his materialist friend. But are you not being a trifle naive? It sounds as if you suppose that argument was the way to keep him out of the enemy's clutches. That might have been so if he had lived a few centuries earlier. .

C. S. Lewis Quotes about reading
#20002 C. S. Lewis

The doctrine of the Second Coming teaches us that we do not and cannot know when the world drama will end. The curtain may be rung down at any moment: say, before you have finished reading this paragraph. .

C. S. Lewis Quotes about reading
#20236 Ernest Hemingway

If the book is good, is about something that you know, and is truly written, and reading it over you see that this is so, you can let the boys yip and the noise will have that pleasant sound coyotes make on a very cold night when they are out in the snow and you are in your own cabin that you have built or paid for with your work. .

Ernest Hemingway Quotes about reading
#22911 Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

And now the sagacious reader, who is capable of reading into these lines what does not stand written in them, but is nevertheless implied, will be able to form some conception of the serious feelings with which I then set foot in Emmendingen.Nun aber wird der einsichtige Leser, welcher f .

I thought of aof labyrinths, of one sinuous spreading labyrinth that would encompass the past and the future and in some way involve the stars. .

Jorge Luis Borges Quotes about reading
#23523 Jorge Luis Borges

"Wakefield" prefigures , but the latter modifies, and sharpens, the reading of "Wakefield." The debt is mutual; a great writer creates his or her precursors. He or she creates them and in some fashion justifies them. .

Jorge Luis Borges Quotes about reading
#25654 Blaise Pascal

In reading this author [] and comparing him with , I have found that they are assuredly the two greatest defenders of the two most celebrated sects of the world, and the only ones conformable to reason, since we can only follow one of these two roads, namely: either that there is a God, and then we place in him the sovereign good; or that he is uncertain, and that then the true good is also uncertain, since he is incapable of it. .

Blaise Pascal Quotes about reading
#26021 Fernando Pessoa

I reread? I lied! I don't dare to reread. I cannot reread. What's the point, for me, in rereading? .

#27437 Samuel Butler (novelist)

When we go up to the shelves in the reading-room of the British Museum, how like it is to wasps flying up and down an apricot tree that is trained against a wall, or cattle coming down to drink at a pool! .

Alice James Quotes about reading
#29585 Edgar Allan Poe

I attacked with great resolution the editorial matter, and, reading it from beginning to end without understanding a syllable, conceived the possibility of its being Chinese, and so re-read it from the end to the beginning, but with no more satisfactory result. .

Bob Dylan Quotes about reading
#30379 Frank Zappa

Just because somebody hears something you say, or reads something that you write, doesn’t mean you’ve reached them. With reading comprehension being what it is in the U. S., you can safely toss that one out the window. If you want to judge by the listening habits of people who buy records, the first thing they do is put it on and talk over it. .

Frank Zappa Quotes about reading
#31294 Groucho Marx

From the moment I picked your book up until I laid it down I was convulsed with laughter. Someday I intend on reading it. .

#31744 The Shawshank Redemption

[in a letter] Dear Red, If you're reading this, you've gotten out. And if you've come this far, maybe you're willing to come a little further. You remember the name of the town, don't you? I could use a good man to help me get my project on wheels. I'll keep an eye out for you and the chessboard ready. Remember, Red. Hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things, and no good thing ever dies. I will be hoping that this letter finds you, and finds you well. Your friend, Andy. .

I take such men to be inspired. I fancy that this moment Shakspeare in heaven ranks with ,and . And if another Messiah ever comes twill be in Shakesper's person. — I am mad to think how minute a cause has prevented me hitherto from reading Shakspeare.

But chancing to fall in with this glorious edition, I now exult in it, page after page. .

Herman Melville Quotes about reading
#33221 Spike Milligan

I thought I'd begin by reading a poem by Shakespeare, but then I thought, why should I? He never reads any of mine. .

Spike Milligan Quotes about reading
#33294 Truman Capote

Finding the right form for your story is simply to realize the most natural way of telling the story. The test of whether or not a writer has divined the natural shape of his story is just this: after reading it, can you imagine it differently, or does it silence your imagination and seem to you absolute and final? As an orange is final. As an orange is something nature has made just right. .

Truman Capote Quotes about reading
#33928 Dune

Any path that narrows future possibilities may become a lethal trap. Humans are not threading their way through a maze; they scan a vast horizon filled with unique opportunities. The narrowing viewpoint of the maze should appeal only to creatures with their noses buried in the sand. .

Dune Quotes about reading
#34824 Franklin D. Roosevelt

There is a solidarity and interdependence about the modern world, both technically and morally, which makes it impossible for any nation completely to isolate itself from economic and political upheavals in the rest of the world, especially when such upheavals appear to be spreading and not declining. There can be no stability or peace either within nations or between nations except under laws and moral standards adhered to by all. International anarchy destroys every foundation for peace. It jeopardizes either the immediate or the future security of every nation, large or small. It is, therefore, a matter of vital interest and concern to the people of the United States that the sanctity of international treaties and the maintenance of international morality be restored. .

Franklin D. Roosevelt Quotes about reading
#34843 Franklin D. Roosevelt

We know it because, if we look below the surface, we sense it still spreading on every continent — for it is the most humane, the most advanced, and in the end the most unconquerable of all forms of human society. .

But did they not precisely make a mistake on the true meaning of "peace"?

During the '70s, when the Cold War was still on, we invited Voznesensky and Yevtushenko to come here. We had very large readings for them. It was a way of kind of culturally thawing the Cold War. .

#36813 Sёren Kierkegaard

By paying attention to the opinion of the visible reading public and of the usual reviewers, one falls into the most fatuous confusion. .

Sёren Kierkegaard Quotes about reading
#37140 Sёren Kierkegaard

Philosophical Fragments was only supposed to clothe the issue in historical costume. The issue was the difficulty. Without wanting to affront anyone, I am of the opinion that not every young graduate in theology would have been capable of presenting the issue with even the same dialectical rhythm with which it is done in the pamphlet. I am also of the opinion that not every young graduate in theology, after reading the pamphlet would be able to set it aside and then on his own to present the issue with just the same dialectical clarity with which it is elucidated in the pamphlet. P. 10 .
