A Charlotte Mason Moment:

“The boy who has not formed the habit of getting nourishment out of his books in school-days does not, afterwards, see the good in reading. He has not acquired, in an intellectual sense, the art of reading, so he cannot be said to have lost it; and he goes through life an imperfect person, with the best and most delightful of his powers latent or maimed.”

(Home Education by Charlotte M. Mason Vol. 5, p.291)

“Reading lessons must be short; ten minutes or a quarter of an hour of fixed attention is enough…”
