If you were to walk into the Library of Alexandria or the Library of Congress, some massive repository of books, you could select a volume of great wisdom. A book that contained incredible knowledge. With all those books to choose from, surely you could select one that was such a treasure that it would beggar a great many lesser works.
If I, instead, elected to take a single page out of every other book – the knowledge I’d hold in my hands would completely dwarf the knowledge you’d hold in yours.
All the knowledge you ever collect will pale in comparison to a single tidbit from every other mind in the world. Be intellectually curious. Collect pages; don’t try to live between the covers of a single book.
