Mark Twain
“Now when I had mastered the language of this water, and had come to know every trifling feature that bordered the great river as familiarly as I knew the letters of the alphabet, I had made a valuable acquisition.

Mark Twain

Lemony Snicket
“Wicked people never have time for reading. It's one of the reasons for their wickedness.”
