Quote of the Day - Mak[ing] what we read ours - John Locke

Reading furnishes the mind only with materials of knowledge; it is thinking that makes what we read ours.
— John Locke

The words we read are valuable precisely because they are invitations for us to think: evaluate, react, process, organize, reject, respond, synthesize.

What you get out of a text is what is yours.

Read like you mean it.
