Thoughts on Reading

Out of school, the child’s work influences him; his playmates affect him more; the example and instruction of his parents form his habits, thought and character to a still greater extent; but more than any one, as much as the three combined, does his time reading shape his destiny.

– Charles H. Sylvester in Journeys Through Bookland (1909)
