Make Haste and Read All These Things

Charles James Fox, letter to Richard Fitzpatrick (September 22, 1767):
For God's sake learn Italian as fast as you can, if it be only to read Ariosto. There is more good poetry in Italian than in all other languages that I understand put together. In prose, too, it is a very fine language. Make haste and read all these things, that you may be fit to talk to Christians.
