One Book

Jules Michelet (1798-1874), The People, tr. C. Cocks (London: Longman, Brown, Green, and Longmans, 1846), p. 45:
A single book read through and through, ruminated on and pondered over, is often more fruitful than a vast mass of indigested reading. I lived for whole years on a Virgil, and found myself well off.

Un livre unique qu'on lit et qu'on relit, qu'on rumine et digère, développe souvent mieux qu'une vaste lecture indigeste. J'ai vécu des années d'un Virgile, et m'en suis bien trouvé.
