To quote is to not understand

Reading maketh a full man; conference a ready man, and writing an exact man. And therefore if a man write little, he had need have a great memory; if he confer little, he had need have a present wit; and if read little, he had need have much cunning to seem to know that he doth not. Histories make men wise; poets, witty; the mathematics, subtle; natural philosophy, deep; moral, grave; logic and rhetoric, able to contend. Abuent studia in mores.
- Sir Francis Bacon, Studies
Indeed, Abuent studia in mores
* Studies are transformed into behavior (The Broadview Reader, 3rd Edition).
