Sir Sidney Lee
Reading is a wrestling with ideas greater than any we can create for ourselves. It has been said, a little extravagantly, that reading can get the better of most physical sufferings, all indeed save the pangs of hunger.
Lee quotes

Lee
Discriminating brevity is a law of the right biographic method.
