You for whom the time is now ripe to profit from reading, mark this:

The years hasten past like running water. Do not, therefore, spend your early years, when learning comes easily in trivial pursuits; for neither the flowing wave nor the fleeting hour returns. Let the study of worthy matters occupy your youth so that your old age may be resplendent with due honor and respect. Use profitable these carefree times; choose a book, each of you, and, mindful of its author, pray “Lord bless him,.”

Alcuin of York
