Students and learned men of every kind and every age go as a rule in search of information, not insight. They make it a point of honour to have information about everything: It does not occur to them that information is merely a means toward insight and possesses little or no value in itself. When I see how much these well-informed people know, I sometimes say to myself: Oh, how little such a one must have had to think about, since he has had so much time for reading!
