Upon Reading

"It is only those who have read who do read."

Isn't that obvious? I chuckled a bit when I read this.

Charlotte Mason says this reflecting upon Sir Philip Magnus' conception; who emphasized the importance of the 'habit of reading' as a chief acquirement of school life.'

I should post more from these last two chapters that I am leading my CM book club through. It is in this chapter, chapter 21 of volume 3 _School Education_, where she is in the midst of outlining a detailed scope of a curriculum based upon her educational principles.

But first, I must be off to pick up our fourth teen from his youth group small group.

Any reflections on this quote that you'd like to share with me? Be my guest!!
