Exactly

"I have sometimes dreamt that when the Day of Judgement dawns and the great conquerors and lawyers and statesmen come to receive their rewards - their crowns, their laurels, their names carved indelibly upon imperishable marble - the Almighty will turn to Peter and will say, not without a certain envy when He sees us coming, with our books under our arms, "Look, these need no reward. We have nothing to give them here. They have loved reading."

--Virgina Woolf, "How Should One Read a Book?"
