One Must Seek In Order To Find

"Indeed, tenuous is the intellect and sincerity of a man that constantly begs an ideology or philosophy be bullet pointed for him rather than he himself undertaking personal study by, at the very least, immersing himself in the reading of one singular book or article on the subject in question."  - Nikarev Leshy

"Reading is to the mind what exercise is to the body." - Sir Richard Steele, Tatler, March 18, 1710.

"To let the brain work without sufficient material is like racing an engine. It racks itself to pieces." - Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Sherlock Holmes: The Adventure of the Devil’s Foot, 1910

"It is a capital mistake to theorize before one has data. Insensibly one begins to twist facts to suit theories, instead of theories to suit facts." - Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Sherlock Holmes: A Scandal In Bohemia, p.163, 1892

“It is a capital mistake to theorize before you have all the evidence. It biases the judgment." - Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Sherlock Holmes: A Study In Scarlet, part 1, chap. 3, p.27, 1888
