Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.
The tendency of modern scientific teaching is to neglect the great books, to lay far too much stress upon relatively unimportant modern work, and to present masses of detail of doubtful truth and questionable weight in such a way as to obscure principles.
I read a lot of obscure books and it is nice to open a book.
