The words of a writer may be uniquely fashioned,

But their interpretations are as numerous as the minds

Attached to the pairs of eyes that scan through the lines.

“When he read, his eyes scanned the page and his heart sought out the meaning, but his voice was silent and his tongue was still.”

Augustine about Ambrose, quoted in Alberto Manguel, Chapter 2 of A History of Reading, (New York; Viking, 1996).

St. Augustine was a fourth century philosopher. Read more about him.
