Is it true, I wonder when some say "the best writing comes from the best reading" ? Any idea, please.

I'm more inclined to think that "The best writing comes from clear thinking."
(And a knowledge of fundamentals, and for that matter, being well read doesn't hurt either!)
I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
I think it was Browning who wrote that to write good poetry, you have to read everything from Homer to now, but to write good novels, you need only read one or two books.
I don't know if I agree.
