Quote To Ponder – Albert Einstein

Saw this in a  Tim Ferris 5 bullet Friday email:

Quote I’m pondering —
“Reading, after a certain age, diverts the mind too much from its creative pursuits. Any man who reads too much and uses his own brain too little falls into lazy habits of thinking.”
– Albert Einstein

Which now has me pondering this quote. I’m certainly “reading” a lot these day thanks to Audible and  Podcast subscriptions that fill my commute.
