To read without thinking is like accumulating building materials without building anything – Rabindranath Tagore

Let no such superstition be nurtured in the mind of children that learning is reading books. It is to be a known at every step that the treasures of books are accumulated from the storehouse of Nature, and this should be, and we also have the authority to have it in the same way.

The power of thought and the power of imagination are indispensable to us for discharging the duties of life. We cannot do without these two powers if we want to live like real men. And unless we cultivate them in childhood we cannot have them when we are grown up.
To read without thinking is like accumulating building materials without building anything.
Our conscious mind occupies only a superficial layer of our life; the subconscious mind is almost fathomless in its depth.
