Gilbert Highet on reading


"The mind which is exercised on books is not being strained and stretched. It is being used for its proper purpose. To smother it with newspaper pulp, shiny clay magazines, and gossip, so as to keep it from bursting, is like keeping the eyes shut all day to rest them."

The Art of Teaching, Gilbert Highet, 1950
