Gaining real knowledge...

The quotes below are from A Calendar of Wisdom:
"Knowledge is real knowledge only when it is acquired by the efforts of your intellect, not by memory." -Leo Tolstoy 
"Only when we forget what we were taught do we start to have real knowledge." -Henry David Thoreau 
"Read less, study less, but think more. Learn, both from your teachers and the books which you read, only those things which you really need and which you really want to know." -Leo Tolstoy
