For out of olde feldes, as men seyth,
Cometh al this newe corn fro yer to yere;
And out of olde bokes, in good feyth,
Cometh al this newe science that men lere.
(Geoffrey Chaucer, “The Parliament of Fowls”, l. 22)
人们说得好,在耕种多年的田地里,
一年又一年长出新的谷子;
完全可以相信,从读过的旧书里,
人们也一定能学到新的知识。
(乔叟,《众鸟之会》,第22行)


Some books are to be tasted, others to be swallowed, and some few to be chewed and digested; that is, some books are to be read only in parts; others to be read but not curiously; and some few to be read wholly, and with diligence and attention. Some book also may be read by deputy, and extracts made of them by others.
(Francis Bacon, “Of Studies”)
有些书可供浅尝,有些可以吞食,少数则须咀嚼消化。换言之,有些书只须读上部分,有些只须大体浏览,少数则须全读,读时须全神贯注,孜孜不倦。书也可请人去读,事后取其读书摘要。
(培根,《谈读书》)

Dreams, books, are each a world; and books, we know,
Are a substantial world, both pure and good;
Round these, with tendrils strong as flesh and blood,
Our pastime and our happiness will grow.
(William Wordsworth, “Personal Talk”, sonnet 3)
梦和书构成各自的世界,大家清楚,
书籍是一个充实的世界,纯洁而精良;
我们的消遣和快乐随之增长,
那卷须就像血肉一般地强固。
