Distrust of the Intellect
- The intellectual power, through words and things,
Went sounding on, a dim and perilous way!
- Errors like straws, upon the surface flow;
He who would search for pearls must dive below.
- Into the eye and prospect of his soul.
- Here the heart
May give a useful lesson to the head,
And learning wiser grow without his books
- Sell your cleverness and buy bewilderment;
Cleverness is mere opinion, bewilderment intuition.
