Books Are a Load of Crap

Juan Ramón Jiménez (1881-1958), Ideolojía (1897-1957) (Barcelona: Anthropos, 1990), p. 143, #730 (my translation):
Translate, study, read — time wasted. Walk, contemplate, meditate, create!

Traducir, estudiar, leer: Tiempo perdido. ¡Pasear, contemplar, meditar, crear!
I added a comma after Traducir (there's a comma in the index on p. cxxxix). I wasted my time translating this, and you're wasting your time reading it.

Hat tip: Ian Jackson.
