this is from this book:
(Claudia): But Mrs. Frankweiler, you should want to learn one new thing every day. We did, even at the museum.
(Mrs. Frankweiler): No, I answered, I don't agree with that. I think you should learn, of course, and some days you must learn a great deal. But you should also have days when you allow what is already in you to swell up inside of you until it touches everything. And you can FEEL it inside you. If you never take time out to let that happen, then, you just accumulate facts. And they begin to rattle around inside of you. You can make noise with them, but never really FEEL anything with them. It's hollow.
wow, kinda makes ya think about what is happening every day all over the world...with all the cramming of info into little heads.
