Always Learning

It’s fascinating to return to an old book you’ve read, just to see how far you’ve progressed. I make a habit of circling any word I don’t know, so that when I do return to a book, I almost have a snapshot of where I was in my education.

For example, in this page from The Moral Animal by Richard Wright, which I read about 2 years ago, I circled the words “resurgent,” “implicit,” and “emanations.” All three of these words are now, more or less, a part of my normal vocabulary. I find this very motivating.
