“The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel, must be intolerably stupid.” ~ Jane Austen

It may sound a bit smartass(to say it mightly) but I myself have to believe it.
I have to add, that the greatest knowledge came for me from people that never
read. But as I new found writer myself, I have to believe that reading for me, that is, it is not for everyone, for me it is crucial to read others.

    1. And you really think that phrase would sell to a broad audience? She´s calling most of the population stupid, whatever time period she is in. I actually found it quite amazing that a person would say that outloud yet again as I said, if I want to write I have to believe it.
