"...But, Mrs. Frankweiler, you should want to learn one new thing every day. We did even at the museum."
"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
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".
