“If thou art borrow'd by a friend,

Right welcome shall he be To read, to study—not to lend,

But to return to me.”

“Not that imparted knowledge doth

Diminish learning's store, But books I find, if often lent,

Return to me no more.”

“ READ SLOWLY, PAUSE FREQUENTLY,

THINK SERIOUSLY, KEEP CLEANLY, RETURN DULY, WITH THE CORNERS OF THE LEAVES

NOT TURNED DOWN.”
