Seek not Wisdom from those who stand to gain from your ignorance.
Seek knowledge not from loud voices,
Or those with small minds.
Seek it from the quiet ones,
The ones standing back, waiting.
Seek not experience from simply watching.
Gain it from your own doing.
Think not just the thoughts
Of others and say “this is so.”
Rather, cultivate your own thoughts,
Within your fertile mind.
Take no opinion at its face.
And then find your own truth.
