The purpose of study
Today’s inspiring quote is from Elizabeth Peabody via Brain Pickings:
Do not study for the sake of having acquirements to display, for the sake of being admired, for the sake of attracting attention…. [Study for] the pleasure … derived from the feeling of energy that arises in the mind from the keen exercise of its powers in metaphysical, scientific or mathematical reasoning.
