From the archives: Ruskin quote for the day

First posted February 2006.

"....you 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
