Reading • Applying • Thinking

I like this quote from Donald Knuth. It is sooo true: 

It is difficult, if not impossible, for anyone to learn a subject purely by reading about it, without applying the information to specific problems and thereby forcing himself to think about what has been read. Furthermore, we all learn best the things we have discovered ourselves.
