Quotes About Your Knowledge

Yourself

Then said a teacher, Speak to us of teaching.

And he said:

No man can reveal to you aught, but that which already lies half asleep in the dawning of your knowledge.

The teacher who walks in the shadow of the temple, among his followers, gives not of his wisdom but rather of his faith and lovingness.

If he is indeed wise he does not bid you enter the house of his wisdom, but rather leads you to the threshold of your own mind.

The astronomer may speak to you of his understanding of space, but he cannot give you his understanding.

The musician may sing to you of the rhythym which is in all space, but he cannot give you the ear which arrests the rhythym nor the voice that ehoes it.

For the vision of one man lends not its wings to another man.

And even as each one of you stands alone in God’s knowledge, so must each one of you be alone in his knowledge of God and in his understanding of the earth.

by Kahlil Gibran

  2. To me this is the essence: “If he is indeed wise he does not bid you enter the house of his wisdom, but rather leads you to the threshold of your own mind.” We cannot tell others what’s the best way. Everybody has their own unique ways. We can only inspire to make others find out about their own way.

    1. Yes, even if I have beliefs that I think would benefit others, I cannot judge people. They do have to find their way. Love is the key! We must love at all times. Thank you Erika for being such a blessing!
