Lern from quotes

One of my hobbies is collecting quotations. Socrates said employ your time in reading great people’s lives so you can learn in a very simple way what it took them all their life to do. The best way I found to do that is in a quote. Sometimes in a quote you can capture what a person took a whole life to learn, incredible wisdom through that. I have about 8,000 quotes on my computer and I log them by subject so whenever I am studying a subject I have the chance to read what all the great people thought about that.
