Samuel Johnson:
...[R]ead diligently, they who do not read can have nothing to think and little to say. When you can get proper company, talk freely and cheerfully; it is often by talking that we come to know the value of what we read, to separate it with distinctness, and fix it in the memory. ....
Letter to Mrs. Thrale, July 1780
