“When you come

bring . . . the books,

especially the parchments.”

–Paul the apostle (2 Timothy 4:13)


“Let no trifling diversion

or amusement or company

decoy you from your books,

i.e., let no girl, no gun, no cards,

no flutes, no violins, no dress,

no tobacco, no laziness

decoy you from your books.”

—John Adams (President)
