A good book deserves an active reading. The activity of reading does not stop with the work of understanding what a book says. It must be completed by the work of criticism, the work of judging. The undemanding reader fails to satisfy this requirement, probably even more than he fails to analyze and interpret. He not only makes no effort to understand; he also dismisses a book simply by putting it aside and forgetting it. Worse than faintly praising it, he damns it by giving it no critical consideration whatever.More Mortimer Adler quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
More consequences for thought and action follow the affirmation or denial of God than from answering any other basic question.More Mortimer Adler quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
