Some quotes about reading:
I have never known any distress that an hour’s reading did not relieve.
Charles de Montesquieu
Read in order to live.

I thought the last quote doesn’t exactly promote the habit of reading, yet it does provide some food for thought.
Some quotes about language:

Remember that you are a human being with a soul and the divine gift of articulate speech: that your native language is the language of Shakespeare and Milton and The Bible; and don’t sit there crooning like a bilious pigeon.
George Bernard Shaw
