Agatha Christie, British author [Wikipedia]

We owe most of our great inven­tions and most of the achieve­ments of genius to idle­ness — either enforced or vol­un­tary. The human mind prefers to be spoon-fed with the thoughts of oth­ers, but deprived of such nour­ish­ment it will, reluc­tant­ly, begin to think for itself — and such think­ing, remem­ber, is orig­i­nal think­ing and may have valu­able results.

Albert Ein­stein, Ger­man-born physi­cist [Wikipedia]
