Why read biographies?

From the life of men whose passage is marked by a trace of durable light, let us piously gather up every word, every incident likely to make known the incentives of their great soul, for the education of posterity.

Louis Pasteur

I find the idea of reading about great souls as a means of education utterly captivating.
