Blaise Pascal
“No one dies so poor that he does not leave something behind.”
Blaise Pascal

Epicurus
“Therefore, foolish is the man who says that he fears death, not because it will cause pain when it arrives but because anticipation of it is painful.”
Epicurus

Gustave Flaubert
“What a scholar one might be if one knew well only some half a dozen books.”
Gustave Flaubert

Bohumil Hrabal
“Because when I read, I don't really read; I pop a beautiful sentence into my mouth and suck it like a fruit drop, or I sip it like a liqueur until the thought dissolves in me like alcohol, infusing brain and heart and coursing on through the veins to the root of each blood vessel.”
Bohumil Hrabal, Too Loud a Solitude

“When we speak of someone as "well-read," we should have this ideal (analytical reading) in mind. Too often, we use that phrase to mean the quantity rather than the quality of reading. A person who has read widely but not well deserves to be pitied rather than praised. As Thomas Hobbes said, "If I read as many books as most men do, I would be as dull-wittied as they are.”
Mortimer J. Adler and Charles Van Doren
