“ He that breaks a thing to find out what it is has left the path of wisdom. ”

We can know only that we know nothing. And that is the highest degree of human wisdom.
It is one thing to be clever and another to be wise.
Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.
There are things known and there are things unknown, and in between are the doors of perception.
