A Quote by Sir Winston Leonard Spencer Churchill on anxiety, authors, books, familiarity, good, memory, quotations, study, and work

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.
