Excerpt from The Choice of Books
The very first thing to be remembered by him who would study the art of reading is that nothing can take the place of personal enthusiasm and personal work. However wise may be the friendly adviser, and however full and perfect the chosen hand-book of reading, neither can do more than to stimulate and suggest. Nothing can take the place of a direct familiarity with books themselves. To know one good book well is better than to know some thing about a hundred good books at second hand. The taste for reading and the habit of reading must always be developed from within; they can never be added from Without.
