He that runs may read.
      - Lord Alfred Tennyson, The Flower (st. 5)

Studious let me sit,
  And hold high converse with the mighty Dead.
      - James Thomson (1), Seasons--Winter
         (l. 431)

Whatever sentence will bear to be read twice, we may be sure was thought twice.
      - Henry David Thoreau

Now, my young friends to whom I am addressing myself, with reference to this habit of reading, I make bold to tell you that it is your pass to the greatest, the purest, and the most perfect pleasure that God has prepared for His creatures.
      - Anthony Trollope

The habit of reading is the only enjoyment I know in which there is no alloy. It lasts when all other pleasures fade. It will be there to support you when all other resources are gone. It will be present to you when the energies of your body have fallen away from you. It will last you until your death. It will make your hours pleasant to you as long as you live.
      - Anthony Trollope

Learn to read slow; all other graces
  Will follow in their proper places.
      - William Walker, Art of Reading

As a man may be eating all day, and for want of digestion is never nourished, so these endless readers may cram themselves in vain with intellectual food.
      - Isaac Watts

Books are to be called for and supplied on the assumption that the process of reading is not a half-sleep, but in the highest sense an exercise, a gymnastic struggle; that the reader is to do something for himself.
      - Walt Whitman

A discursive student is almost certain to fall into bad company. Ten minutes with a French novel or a German rationalist have sent a reader away with a fever for life.
      - Robert Aris Willmott

A good reader is nearly as rare as a good writer. People bring their prejudices, whether friendly or adverse. They are lamp and spectacles, lighting and magnifying the page.
      - Robert Aris Willmott

From numberless books the fluttering reader, idle and inconstant, bears away the bloom that only clings to the outer leaf; but genius has its nectaries, delicate glands, and secrecies of sweetness, and upon these the thoughtful mind must settle in its labor, before the choice perfume of fancy and wisdom is drawn forth.
      - Robert Aris Willmott

Who knows if Shakespear might not have thought less, if he had read more?
      - Edward Young

Books afford the surest relief in the most melancholy moments.
      - Johann Georg von Zimmermann

The man whose bosom neither riches nor luxury nor grandeur can render happy may, with a book in his hand, forget all his torments under the friendly shade of every tree; and experience pleasures as infinite as they are varied, as pure as they are lasting, as lively as they are unfading, and as compatible with every public duty as they are contributory to private happiness.
      - Johann Georg von Zimmermann

We never read without profit if with the pen or pencil in our hand we mark such ideas as strike us by their novelty, or correct those we already possess.
      - Johann Georg von Zimmermann
