Because I spend so much time traveling, I tend to do most of my reading on the same iPad on which I write. For me, it's words, not paper, that matter most in the end. This practice has had the additional benefit of greatly reducing the time I spend storming through the house, defaming the mysterious forces who 'hid my book.'Scott Turow Reading Benefit Sayings By Scott Turow: Because I spend so much time traveling, I tend to do most of my reading
While reading the (acceptance) letter, I thought about Paul White. Having an advocate on the inside - someone who had gotten to know me on a personal level - had obviously helped. It made me think deeply about the way privilege and preference work in the world, and how many kids who didn't have "luck" like mine in this instance would find themselves forever outside the ring of power and prestige. So many opportunities in this country are apportioned in this arbitrary and miserly way, distributed to those who already have the benefit of a privileged legacy.Wes Moore Reading Benefit Sayings By Wes Moore: While reading the (acceptance) letter, I thought about Paul White. Having an advocate on the
When you assume you make a you-know-what out of U and me. Yep, so let's stop assuming so much. We are often quick to explain details to strangers, who we understand might not be reading our minds, but we often assume that those people closest to us, those who share our household such as spouses, children parents and siblings, can read our minds. And we get upset with them when they don't go figure.
I wonder how many angry words are directed not at an action or inaction as would at first appear, but simply at the fact that somebody did not read our minds.
So let's give those people we care most about the benefit of the doubt and do a little less assuming and a little more explaining.
David Leonhardt Reading Benefit Sayings By David Leonhardt: When you assume you make a you-know-what out of U and me. Yep, so let's
I'm not sure that the benefit - as a writer and as a citizen - that I would get from reading at least the front page of the Times every day or every other day would outweigh the depression.Sharon Olds Reading Benefit Sayings By Sharon Olds: I'm not sure that the benefit - as a writer and as a citizen -
Ayahuasca can heal, but it an also be used to kill,' Carlos continues to translate for Juan ... The key is remaining humble, being a servant of ayahuasca, not a master. 'Give yourself to the benefit of others, to God,' Juan says, his eyes daring over us, reading our energies. 'You must have a purpose to help other people, a desire to hep others. If you have a pure heart, a humble mind, and faith in your soul
then the Science will open up to you and show you its wonders.
Rak Razam Reading Benefit Sayings By Rak Razam: Ayahuasca can heal, but it an also be used to kill,' Carlos continues to translate
You only benefit from books if you can give something back to them. What I mean is, if you approach them in the spirit of a duel, so you can both wound and be wounded, so you are willing to argue, to overcome and be overcome, and grow richer by what you have learned, not only in the book, but in life, or by being able to make something of your work.Sandor Marai Reading Benefit Sayings By Sandor Marai: You only benefit from books if you can give something back to them. What I
We do not learn for the benefit of anyone, we learn to unlearn ignorance.Michael Bassey Johnson Reading Benefit Sayings By Michael Bassey Johnson: We do not learn for the benefit of anyone, we learn to unlearn ignorance.
I propose that if you want a simple step to a higher form of life, as distant from the animal as you can get, then you may have to denarrate, that is, shut down the television set, minimize time spent reading newspapers, ignore the blogs. Train your reasoning abilities to control your decisions; nudge System 1 (the heuristic or experiential system) out of the important ones. Train yourself to spot the difference between the sensational and the empirical. This insulation from the toxicity of the world will have an additional benefit: it will improve your well-being.Nassim Nicholas Taleb Reading Benefit Sayings By Nassim Nicholas Taleb: I propose that if you want a simple step to a higher form of life,
I really wished he hadn't made me hate to read the Bible. Having it shoved down my throat all my life had made me bitter toward reading it. I believed it, but my dad had used it to his benefit too many times and ignored the parts in there that would point out his wrongs. Like judging Beau without even knowing him. That was in the Bible too.Abbi Glines Reading Benefit Sayings By Abbi Glines: I really wished he hadn't made me hate to read the Bible. Having it shoved
People interested in museums as real educational environments, parents interested in their children's education, and people seeking to find themselves in a positive way could all benefit from reading this book. by Associate Dean Engineering, Michigan State UniversityRonald Rosenberg Reading Benefit Sayings By Ronald Rosenberg: People interested in museums as real educational environments, parents interested in their children's education, and
If we neglect Scripture in order to read only other books, we not only cut ourselves from the divine umbilical cord that feeds our souls, we also cut ourselves from the truth that makes it possible for us to benefit from the truth, goodness, and beauty in the books that we read.Tony Reinke Reading Benefit Sayings By Tony Reinke: If we neglect Scripture in order to read only other books, we not only cut
Whether the author intended a symbolic resonance to exist in her book is irrelevant. All that matters is whether it's there. Because the book does not exist for the benefit of the author, the book exists for the benefit of YOU. If we as readers can have a bigger and richer experience with the world as a result of reading a symbol and that symbol wasn't intended by the author, WE STILL WIN.John Green Reading Benefit Sayings By John Green: Whether the author intended a symbolic resonance to exist in her book is irrelevant. All
Some people never learn how to talk to kids. They turn up the volume and enunciate with extra care, as if talking to a partially deaf immigrant. They sound as if they're reading lines somebody else wrote for them, or as if what they're saying is really for the benefit of other adults listening and not just for the child. Kids sense that and turn off.F. Paul Wilson Reading Benefit Sayings By F. Paul Wilson: Some people never learn how to talk to kids. They turn up the volume and
MECH to Baal: Would you like some wine, Mr Baal? All take seats, Baal in the place of honour. Do you like crab? That's a dead eel. PILLER to Mech: I'm very glad that the immortal poems of Mr Baal, which I had the honour of reading to you, have earned your approval. To Baal: You must publish your poetry. Mr Mech pays like a real patron of the arts. You'll be able to leave your attic. MECH: I buy cinnamon wood. Whole forests of cinnamon float down the rivers of Brazil for my benefit. But I'll also publish your poetry. EMILIE: You live in an attic? BAAL eating and drinking: 64 Klauckestrasse. MECH: I'm really too fat for poetry. But you've got the same-shaped head as a man in the Malayan Archipelago, who used to have himself driven to work with a whip. If he wasn't grindingBertolt Brecht Reading Benefit Sayings By Bertolt Brecht: MECH to Baal: Would you like some wine, Mr Baal? All take seats, Baal in
Never, ever exercise in front of a TV or while reading. You lose 50 percent of the benefit of the exercise by not hearing and feeling your heart rate, your sweat and the pain levels that need to be encountered in fitness training.Kevin R. Stone Reading Benefit Sayings By Kevin R. Stone: Never, ever exercise in front of a TV or while reading. You lose 50 percent
My illusions about the world caused me to think that in order to benefit by my reading I ought to possess all the knowledge the book presupposed. I was very far indeed from imagining that often the author did not possess it himself, but had extracted it from other books, as and when he needed it. This foolish conviction forced me to stop every moment, and to rush incessantly from one book to another; sometimes before coming to the tenth page of the one I was trying to read I should, by this extravagant method, have had to run through whole libraries. Nevertheless I stuck to it so persistently that I wasted infinite time, and my head became so confused that I could hardly see or take in anything.Jean-Jacques Rousseau Reading Benefit Sayings By Jean-Jacques Rousseau: My illusions about the world caused me to think that in order to benefit by
A man listening to a story is in the company of the storyteller; even a man reading one shares this companionship. The reader of a novel, however, is isolated, more so than any other reader(For even the reader of a poem is ready to utter the words, for the benefit of the listener.) In this solitude of his, the reader of
a novel seizes upon his material more jealously than anyone else. He is ready to make it completely his own, to devour it, as it were. Indeed, he destroys, he swallows up the material as the fire devours logs in the fireplace. The suspense which permeates the novel is
very much like the draft which stimulates the flame in the fireplace and enlivens its play.
Walter Benjamin Reading Benefit Sayings By Walter Benjamin: A man listening to a story is in the company of the storyteller; even a
Human existence is temporary and all the knowledge of the universe we acquire will in time be forgotten because there will be no humans left to benefit from any of the stuff we learned.
And yet, this doesn't invalidate scientific exploration to me. We seek to understand the universe because it makes our lives better and more rich. Similarly, we tell stories (and think about why and how to tell stories) because it makes human existence richer. Made-up stories matter. They bring us pleasure and solace and nurture empathy by letting us see the world through others' eyes. They also help us to feel unalone, to understand that our grief and joy is shared not just by those around us but by all those who came before us and all those still yet to come.
John Green Reading Benefit Sayings By John Green: Human existence is temporary and all the knowledge of the universe we acquire will in

A felon could plead "benefit of clergy" and be saved by [reading aloud] what was aptly enough termed the "neck verse", which was very usually the Miserere mei of Psalm 51.William Hazlitt Reading Benefit Sayings By William Hazlitt: A felon could plead "benefit of clergy" and be saved by [reading aloud] what was
The best way for parents to go about acquiring a mind-set of self-reflective parenting will be different for different individuals. Some people will find that they are already very close to being the parent they are striving to be. Other people will find reading books or blog articles to be very helpful and some other people might benefit most by engaging in discussions on the internet.Timothy Carey Reading Benefit Sayings By Timothy Carey: The best way for parents to go about acquiring a mind-set of self-reflective parenting will
Speak Peace sums up decades of healing and peacework. It would be hard to list all the kinds of people who can benefit from reading this book, because it's really any and all of us.Michael N. Nagler Reading Benefit Sayings By Michael N. Nagler: Speak Peace sums up decades of healing and peacework. It would be hard to list

I was at a benefit for some imprisoned students in the '60s at San Francisco State, and there were lots of poets reading for the benefit: one was Elizabeth Bishop.Thom Gunn Reading Benefit Sayings By Thom Gunn: I was at a benefit for some imprisoned students in the '60s at San Francisco
There is something about the medium [in comics] that allows for a simulation of actual experience with the added benefit of actually reading. You're reading pictures, but you are also looking at them. It's a sort of combined activity that I can't really think of any other medium having, other than, say, a foreign film when you are reading and seeing. It allows for all sorts of associations that might not come up with just words or just pictures.Chris Ware Reading Benefit Sayings By Chris Ware: There is something about the medium [in comics] that allows for a simulation of actual
We shall not benefit from reading the Old Testament unless we look for and meditate on the glory of Christ in its pages.John Owen Reading Benefit Sayings By John Owen: We shall not benefit from reading the Old Testament unless we look for and meditate
frustration has flared up over the Common Core initiative, involving the implementation of national reading and maths standards for primary and secondary school children. The Gates Foundation played a central role in bringing the standards to fruition. Spending over $233 million to back the standards, the foundation dispersed money liberally to both conservative and progressive interest groups. The two major teachers' unions, the National Education Association and the American Federation of Teachers, each received large donations, as did the US Chamber of Commerce. Gates himself suggested that a benefit of the standards is that they open avenues towards increasing digital learning. In 2014, Microsoft announced it was partnering with Pearson to load Pearson's Common Core classroom material onto Microsoft's Surface tablet. Previously, the iPad was the classroom frontrunner; the Pearson partnership helps to make Microsoft more competitive.Linsey McGoey Reading Benefit Sayings By Linsey McGoey: frustration has flared up over the Common Core initiative, involving the implementation of national reading
Oh, come on now, she said mildly, as a car suddenly pulled into the lane in front of her. She lifted her hand to toot the horn and then didn't bother. Note how I didn't scream and yell like a mad person, she thought for the benefit of that afternoon's psychotic truck driver, just in case he happened to have stopped by to read her mind.Liane Moriarty Reading Benefit Sayings By Liane Moriarty: Oh, come on now, she said mildly, as a car suddenly pulled into the lane
Fundamentally, literacy is a spiritual discipline that must overcome the spiritual darkness that veils us. If we ever hope to spiritually benefit from our reading, the Holy Spirit must intrude upon our lives and remove our blindfolds so that we can behold the radiant glory of Jesus Christ (John 1:9). Once we see His glory, our literacy - how we read books - is permanently and forever changed.Tony Reinke Reading Benefit Sayings By Tony Reinke: Fundamentally, literacy is a spiritual discipline that must overcome the spiritual darkness that veils us.
One benefit of Summer was that each day we had more light to read by.Jeannette Walls Reading Benefit Sayings By Jeannette Walls: One benefit of Summer was that each day we had more light to read by.
On top of whatever else I'm doing, I'm usually teaching some form of composition. The benefit of this is I get to read across disciplines. Often enough that work spills over to my creative reading/thinking, and I reach a point of saturation where I can't distinguish between texts and writers and everything starts to blur and smudge together.Gregory Pardlo Reading Benefit Sayings By Gregory Pardlo: On top of whatever else I'm doing, I'm usually teaching some form of composition. The
I read daily, not so much for the benefit of my writing, but because I am addicted to it. There is nothing in the world for me that compares to being lost in a really good novel. That said, reading is an absolute must if you want to write. It is a trite enough thing to say, but very true nonetheless. I cannot understand aspiring writers who email me for advice and freely admit that they read very little. I have learned something from every writer I have ever read. Sometimes I have done so consciously, picking up something about how to frame a scene, or seeing a new possibility with regards to structure, or interesting ways to write dialogue. Other times, I think, my collective reading experience affects my sensibilities and informs me in ways that I am not quite aware of, but in real ways that impact how I approach writing. The short of it is, as an aspiring writer, there is nothing as damaging to your credibility as saying that you don't like to readKhaled Hosseini Reading Benefit Sayings By Khaled Hosseini: I read daily, not so much for the benefit of my writing, but because I
I didn't understand the Kindle's true value until I finished an e-book on the beach. In sixty seconds - and without benefit of pants - I had brand-new reading material at my fingertips.Jen Lancaster Reading Benefit Sayings By Jen Lancaster: I didn't understand the Kindle's true value until I finished an e-book on the beach.
