What does it mean? Reading makes a full man; conference a ready man; writing an exact man. What does 'conference a ready man' mean? Thank you!

I agree with Eufrench - 'to confer' means to discuss or exchange opinions with others. "Conference" is the event where it happens. To be able to discuss ideas means you must also be alert and able to react swiftly (=ready).

I believe conference here refers to communicating verbally with others,i.e speaking.
