Look for wisdom, not facts. We’re not reading to just find random pieces of information. What’s the point of that? We’re reading to accumulate a mass of true wisdom—that you can turn to and apply in your actual life. - Ryan Holiday
The purpose of reading a wide variety of book types is to gain a broader understanding of the world, not just to memorize facts. There’s no need for us to become human encyclopedias.
The ability to make connections from a wide expanse of experience is what makes us better.
