Tell Me What You Read

"Tell me what you read, and I will tell you what you think."

".דימי לוקי מילדאס טי דירי לוקי פינסאס"

Isaac Shaki, דאבות מלי או ומזיאדו'ז דיל טריזורו [Trezoro del djudaizmo o Mile de-'Avot] (Cairo, 5667 [1907]), vol. I, p.[ii]. My translation. The proverb is quoted in a complaint that both the young and old are wasting their time reading novels instead of religious books.
