English writer and critic
WORDS ABOUT WORDS
Read what you like, because you like it, seeking no other reason and no other profit than the experience of reading. ... That which suits your purpose is best, for happiness, pleasure, joy, prefer to come unawares; they are shy of pursuit and resentful in captivity.
Holbrook Jackson, English writer and critic, 1930
