Reading and writing are connected. I learned to read very early so I could read the comics, which I then started to draw.
To me, reading a fashion magazine is the last thing I need to do. I've got books I need to read.
By reading a lot of novels in a variety of genres, and asking questions, it's possible to learn how things are done - the mechanics of writing, so to speak - and which genres and authors excel in various areas.
And I think it's because good cons are all based on the victim's need, and the successful con artist is the one, I guess, who can exploit that. I remember reading something about this, that one of the great traits of confidence tricksters is the level that they flatter their victim.
No one ever committed suicide while reading a good book, but many have tried while trying to write one.
Be able to recognize when you're reading or hearing material biased to your own side.
Marilyn vos Savant
Reading is not a duty, and has consequently no business to be made disagreeable.
Oprah's got good politics, she's got a good heart, and she'll have us all up Jazzercising at six in the morning. This cannot be a bad thing, and reading a book while we're Jazzercising. So America would be better off if Oprah were president.
I have given up reading books; I find it takes my mind off myself.
Education was the most important value in our home when I was growing up. People don't always realize that my parents shared a sense of intellectual curiosity and a love of reading and of history.

Reading is an act of civilization; it's one of the greatest acts of civilization because it takes the free raw material of the mind and builds castles of possibilities.
I get so disenfranchised reading the news, because global borders and lines we've created are completely unnecessary. That's just another person on the other side, and it's his bad luck that he was born there and it's my good fortune that I was born here. It's all kind of illogical.
It was no hardship to me to spend long hours reading and writing.

When it comes to the point where you occasionally look forward to being in prison on the basis that you might be able to spend a day reading a book, the realization dawns that perhaps the situation has become a little more stressful than you would like.
A great many people now reading and writing would be better employed keeping rabbits.
All that matters in life is forging deep ties of love and family and friends. Writing and reading come later.
