A Quote by Francis Quarles on books, friendship, men, profit, and truth

Read not books alone, but men, and amongst them chiefly thyself. If thou find anything questionable there, use the commentary of a severe friend, rather than the gloss of a sweet-lipped flatterer; there is more profit in a distasteful truth than in deceitful sweetness.

Francis Quarles (1592 - 1644)
