Quote for the day

Once again, we've been looking through The Concise Oxford Dictionary of Quotations (available via the database Oxford Reference Online on our library web pages) for words to inspire you. Here's the latest in our semi-regular series:-

"Reading is to the mind what exercise is to the body."
Richard Steele (1672-1729), Irish-born essayist and dramatist, in The Tatler no. 147 (18th March 1710)

So if the weather leaves something to be desired this bank holiday weekend, don't worry about being stuck in the house, just pick up a book and give your mind a workout instead!
