Quotes from 'The Chatto Book of the Devil' by Francis Spufford

You despise them, books, you whose whole life is plunged in the vanities of ambition and in the search for pleasure or in idleness. [...] It is with books as with men; the very small number play a great part, the rest are mingled in the crowd.

"Voltaire's Philosophical Dictionary"
Voltaire (1764)

Some books are to be tasted, others to be swallowed, and some few to be chewed and digested: that is, some books are to be read only in parts; others to be read, but not [with great care]; and some few to be read wholly and with diligence and attention.
