Sunday Sentence: 29 May 2016 from Clifton Fadiman

Sunday Sentence: The sentence(s) that touched me this week, out of context and without commentary. Inspired by David Abrams at The Quivering Pen.

How to use the power of the printed word

“We don’t deepen our reading enjoyment by immediately comprehending every word, sentence, paragraph and reference.  We deepen it by grappling with the partly understood, the unfamiliar, the phrase or idea that forces us to think.”

from the Preface of  How to Use the Power of the Printed Word Edited by Billings S. Fuess, Jr (Preface by Clifton Fadiman)
