Montesquieu (1689-1755), My Thoughts, tr. Henry C. Clark (Indianapolis: Liberty Fund, 2012), p. 644 (#2128):
I have made the resolution to read only good books. He who reads bad ones is like a man who spends his life in bad company.
In French, from Oeuvres complètes de Montesquieu, Tome II: Pensées. Spicilége. Geographica (Paris: Nagel, 1950), p. 644
J'ai pris la résolution de ne lire que de bons livres: celui qui les lit mauvais est semblable à un homme qui passe sa vie en mauvaise compagnie.
