Pablo Picasso, Reclining Woman Reading (1960, [Musée National Picasso, Paris)
«Reading furnishes the mind only with materials of knowledge: it is thinking makes what we read ours. We are of the ruminating kind, and it is not enough to cram ourselves with a great load of collections: unless we chew them over again, they will not give us strength or nourishment.»
Locke, citado in M. Digby Wyatt, W. R. Tymms, The History, theory, and Practice of Illuminating, 2.ª parte, London, Day and Son, 1861, p. 23.
