- Allj^emiwHUfi?gros that Levo of
v Reading Sa one of tba supremest plea?;
v fa the only friend who ncr er changea.
Take il up when you like, pat it aside
wheo y ott cbooee, oherieh it or oegleet
it'aoait ii Mill tbe saree ; always pre
Mating a smiling faoo, and never re?
teaching you for any fancied elight or
- insult. Other friends may grow cold,
or fall away, or.die, bot your .book is a
fiiend that is always faithfu.1 Sod true;
'' and bs who basa gonuioe lore of read
/lng possesses a talisman to charm away
I sorrow-a co m pan ion, a lawyer, a phy
l eiflian, a philosoper, who never grows
? weary, asks no fee, demands no
homage, resents no wrong, but is ever
? ready to instroot, to console and to de?
light. . ;....
The Amusement of Reading, says Sir
.- Edgerton Brydges, "is among the great
est consolations o? lifo j it is tbs nurse
of virtue, the upholder of adversity, the
prop of independence, the support of
a just pride, the strengthener or elevat?
ed opinions; it is a shield against the
tyranny of all the petty passions ; it is
the re pel 1er of the fool's scoff and the
. knave s poison."
"If," says Sir John Hersohol, "I were
to pray for a taste whioh would stand
me in stead under every variety of oir
oumstanoe, and be a source of happi?
ness and cheerfulness to me through
life, and a shield against its ills, how
ever things may go amiss and the world
frown upon me, it would be a Taste for
Reading. I speak of it, of course, only
as a worldly advantage, and not in the
slightest degree as superseding or deroga
ing from the higher ornees, and surer and
stronger panoply of religious principles,
but as a taste, an instrument and a mode
of pleasurable gratification. Give a man
this taste and tho means of gratifying it,
and you eau hardly fail of making a
happy man, unless, iudoed, you put in
his hand a perverse selcotion of books.
You placa him in oootact with the best
society, in ovcry period of history; with
tho wisest, wittiest, with the teuderest,
the bravest, and the purest characters
who hav^? adorned humanity ; you may
make him a denizen of all nations, a
contemporary of alliages. The World has
been created for bim/'
"A book, a love of reading, and edu?
cation is," says Macaulay, "a companion
whioh no misfortune can depress, no
olime destroy, no enemy alienate, no
despotism onslave. At borne, a friend ;
abroad, an introduction ; in solitude, a
solace ; in sooiety, an ornament. It
shortens vico, it guides virtue, it gives
nt once grace and government to genius.
Without it, what is man ? A splendid
slave ! a reasoning savago I va illating
between tho dignity o? an intelligence
derived from God and the degradation
of brutal passion."
Poetry and music are but expressions
of that intense love of the beautiful
whioh grows out of a communion of
mind with mind. "All inmost things,"
says Carlyle, "are melodious, and nat?
urally utter themselves in song. The
meaning of song goes deep. The Greeks
fabled of sphere harmonies ; ?twas the
feeling they had of thu inner structure
of nature, that the soul of all her voices
and utterances was perfect music Poetry
therefore, we call musical thought. The
foot is he who thinks in that manner,
t turne still in on powers of intellect i
it is man's sincerity and depth of vision
that makes him a poet. See deep enough
and you see musically-the heart of na?
ture boing everywhere music if you can
only reaoh it."
lt is not necessary, however, that
your reading should be exceeding di?
verso ; better that, like other friends,
your books should be select and choice.
"He that roads muob," observes Lord
Lytton, "should have powerful organs of!
intellectual digestion ; he will other?
wise receive but little nutriment into
his mind, and, what is worse, will de
range the healthy functions of his men
tal System? The ingenious Mr. Hobbes
did not much value a large library, and
used to remark, though with singular
vanity, that had he read as much as
other men, ho would have been as igno?
rant as they."
"Some books," remarks the great Sir
Francis Bacon, "are to be tasted, others
to be swallowed, and some few to bo
chewed and digested ;" and there are,
says Charles Lamb, "books that aro no
books," by whioh he meant books not
worth ronding, of which in theso latter
days, there are nnfoi tuoately too many ;
but, thon, is not the Book of Booka to
counteract the ovil influence ofidio read
ing ? The volume, than whioh, says
Sir Walter Scott, 'twero
"Better hail they ne'er boen born,
Who road to doubt, or read to soorn 1"
