A Quote by Ambrose Gwinett Bierce on books, doubt, truth, wisdom, and work

REVIEW, v.t. To set your wisdom (holding not a doubt of it./ Although in truth there's neither bone nor skin to it)/ At work upon a book, and so read out of it/ The qualities that you have first read into it.

Ambrose Bierce (1842 - 1914)
