In-Between Two Worlds


Reading 1
"Read not to contradict and confute, nor to believe and take for granted,
nor to find talk and discourse but to weigh and consider.
Some books are to be tasted, others to be swallowed and some few to
be chewed and digested: that is some books are to be read only in parts,
others to be read but not curiously and some few to be read wholly and
with diligence and attention"
