Quotations from Brainy Smurf 237

Sir Winston Churchill on quotations:

"It is a good thing for an uneducated man to read books of quotations. Bartlett's Familiar Quotations is an admirable work, and I studied it intently. The quotations when engraved upon the memory give you good thoughts. They also make you anxious to read the authors and look for more. "

Churchill, My Early Life: A Roving Commission (1930), Chapter 9
