Periodic Rereading

A great book deserves to be read and reread periodically, not only because as we mature we will see things in it that we missed as younger readers, but also because we will gain a nobler understanding of ourselves and our own process of aging by comparing the effects the book has on us at the various stages of our lives.

The more you repeat that the experience of rereading great literature, the more perceptive you become. It is actually a remarkably simple way to acquire wisdom.
