Read for company and encouragement in your thinking

Schopenhauer admits that reading is a better way of engaging with another person's mind because the writer's works may be richer in content than his company, the result and fruit of all his thinking and studying. 

  • When Schopenhauer quotes from the authors he read, it is because he takes courage from them, but not content.
  • He stresses that this still does not mean we can import literary qualities into our own writing simply by reading them.  Reading shapes us for writing by teaching us the use we can make of our own natural gifts.
