Famous quotes containing the word read:

    Can you read my mind? Do you know what it is that you do to me?
    David Newman (b. 1937)

    Would you approve of your young sons, young daughters—because girls can read as well as boys—reading this book? Is it a book that you would have lying around in your own house? Is it a book that you would even wish your wife or your servants to read?
    Mervyn Griffith-Jones (1909–1979)

    Nor do they trust their tongue alone,
    But speak a language of their own;
    Can read a nod, a shrug, a look,
    Far better than a printed book;
    Convey a libel in a frown,
    And wink a reputation down.
    Jonathan Swift (1667–1745)
