Reading, Quoting, and Brains
"The man who never reads will never be read; he who never quotes will never be quoted. He who will not use the thoughts of other men's brains, proves that he has no brains of his own."
-Charles Spurgeon, Sermon: Paul, His Cloak And His Books
Quoted in his biography, Martyn Llyod Jones provides a great caution against the danger of living:
"a kind of second hand spiritual life on books...We may do this for years without realizing that we are living on books instead of living on Christ."
