Celebrating the A to Z Blogging Challenge with quotations on the writing life.
Give yourself unto reading.
A man who never reads will never be read;
he who never quotes will never be quoted.
He who will not use the thoughts of other men’s brains,
proves that he has no brains of his own.
You need to read.
Charles H. Spurgeon
What can I add to Spurgeon’s eloquence? Not a thing! Except, perhaps, these insightful words from our friend Chesterton.
There is a great deal of difference between an eager man who wants to read a book and a tired man who wants a book to read.
Will you “give yourself unto reading,” friend? Instead of (like me) sitting around eating taco chips and watching junk television?
