Distrust of the Intellect

The intellectual power, through words and things,
Went sounding on, a dim and perilous way!

William Wordsworth

Errors like straws, upon the surface flow;
He who would search for pearls must dive below.

John Dryden

Into the eye and prospect of his soul.

William Shakespeare

Here the heart
May give a useful lesson to the head,
And learning wiser grow without his books

William Cowper

Sell your cleverness and buy bewilderment;
Cleverness is mere opinion, bewilderment intuition.
