"The Man of much Reading and a large retentive Memory, but without Meditation, may become in the Sense of the World a knowing Man; and if he converses much with the Ancients, he may attain the Fame of Learning too: but he spends his Days afar off from Wisdom and true judgment, and possesses very little of the Substantial Riches of the Mind."
— Watts, Isaac (1674-1748)
