„We shouldn't teach great books; we should teach a love of reading.“

—  B.F. Skinner American behaviorist 1904 - 1990
Context: We shouldn't teach great books; we should teach a love of reading. Knowing the contents of a few works of literature is a trivial achievement. Being inclined to go on reading is a great achievement. As quoted in B. F. Skinner : The Man and His Ideas (1968) by Richard Isadore Evans, p. 73.
