Ripened, sharpened thinking

“People who are in a hurry to get out of the university and start earning money or serving the church or preaching the gospel have no idea of the infinite value of spending years of leisure conversing with the greatest minds and souls of the past, ripening and sharpening and enlarging their powers of thinking.  The result is that the arena of creative thinking is vacated and abdicated to the enemy.”

-- Charles Malik, “The Other Side of Evangelism,” Christianity Today, 7 November 1980, page 40.
