In an article on reading the New Yorker had a great quote from Proust. Ruskin compared reading to conversation with the wise and noble..Proust countered, "that it was much better than that. To read is to receive communication with another way of thinking all the while remaining alone, that is, while continuing to enjoy the intellectual power that one has in solitude and that converstaion dissipates immediately." That says it exactly.
