"In order that the mind may not be taxed, moreover, by the manifold and confused reading of so many such things, and in order to prevent the escape of something valuable that we have read, heard, or discovered through the process of thinking itself, it will be found very useful to entrust to notebooks ... those things which seem noteworthy and striking."

[Commonplace books: Thomas Farnaby, 17th-century]

Truly you cannot read too much in Scripture, and what you read, you cannot read too well, and what you read well, you cannot understand too well; what you understand well, you cannot teach too well; and what you teach well, you cannot live too well.

[Christian life: Martin Luther, ]
