He who binds
  His soul to knowledge, steals the key of heaven.
      - The Scholar of Thibet Ben Khorat (II)
        [Knowledge]

Wisdom sits alone,
  Topmost in heaven:--she is its light--its God;
    And in the heart of man she sits as high--
      Though grovelling eyes forget her oftentimes,
        Seeing but this world's idols. The pure mind
          Sees her forever: and in youth we come
            Fill'd with her sainted ravishment, and kneel,
              Worshipping God through her sweet altar fires,
                And then is knowledge "good."
      - The Scholar of Thibet--Ben Khorat
         (pt. II, l. 93) [Wisdom]
