Some Thoughts About the Newspaper
By A. W. Tozer
It hardly need be said that most of us are not
selective enough in our reading.
I have often wondered how many square yards
of newsprint passes in front of the eyes of the
average civilized man in the course of a year.
Surely it must run into several acres; and I am
afraid our average reader does not realize a very
large crop on his acreage.
The best advice I have heard on this topic was
given by a Methodist minister.
He said, "Always read your newspaper standing up."
Henry David Thoreau also had a low view of the daily press.
Just before leaving the city for his now celebrated sojourn on
the banks of Walden Pond a friend asked him if he would like
to have a newspaper delivered to his cottage.
"No," replied Thoreau, "I have already seen a newspaper."
Yours in Christ,

I agree with the men above on the newspaper.
