Growing in knowledge

Plato has this interesting thing to say about knowledge and growing in knowledge.
Isn’t it by learning and study, which are motions, that the soul gains knowledge and is preserved and becomes a better thing? Whereas in a state of rest, that is, when it will not study or learn, it not only fails to acquire knowledge but forgets what it has already learned? [Plato, Theaetetus, 153c]
No wonder he was called wise!
