An educated person

" might read all the books in the British Museum (if you could live long enough), and remain an utterly "illiterate," uneducated person; but....if you read ten pages of a good book, letter by letter,--that is to say, with real accuracy,--you are for evermore in some measure an educated person."

--John Ruskin, "Of Kings' Treasuries" in Sesame and Lilies
