司布真 – 精读你手头的书

C. H. Spurgeon

“Master those books you have. Read them thoroughly. Bathe in them until they saturate you. Read and reread them, masticate and digest them. Let them go into your very self. Peruse a good book several times and make notes and analyses of it. A student will find that his mental constitution is more affected by one book thoroughly mastered than by twenty books he has merely skimmed. Little learning and much pride comes from hasty reading. Some men are disabled from thinking by their putting meditation away for the sake of much reading. In reading let your motto be ‘much not many.’”

精读你手头的书,全面、彻底地掌握里面的内容。将自己沉浸其中,一遍又一遍不停地读,咀嚼、消化、吸收,直到那些知识成为你自己的。好书值得反复阅读、做笔记、认真思考。如果你照做了,你会发现,精读一本书对你的知识结构的影响,远胜过浏览二十本书。马马虎虎的阅读只能让你更加无知,而且莫名骄傲。有些人为了多读书而停止思考,这使他们失去了思考能力。让这句话成为你读书的座右铭:“少读多想”。

from J. Oswald Sanders, “Spiritual Leadership”
