Churchill on Bartlett

While perusing my "new" copy of John Bartlett's Familiar Quotations - I had to stop, laugh and ascent to this....
It is good for an uneducated man to read books of quotations. Bartlett's Familiar Quotations is an admirable work and I studied it intently.  The quotations when engraved on the memory give you good thoughts.  They also make you anxious to read the authors and look for more.
-Winston Churchill
Two thoughts - So true!  and  However did this quote make the cut?  :-)
