Quote on Deep Reading

A [difficult] passage prevents us from indulging our vulgar appetites for action, information and explanation - the fast food of fiction. It prevents us from leaping to conclusions, though it invites us to consider possibilities. It schools us in the very patience it demands. - from Caring for Words in a Culture of Lies by McEntyre

(C.S. Lewis states the same idea which I quote in this post from 2009.)
