Kowledge versus experience.

..
However deep your
Knowledge of the scriptures,
It is no more than a strand of hair
In the vastness of space;
However important appears
Your worldly experience,
It is but a drop of water in a deep ravine.

Tokusan 


Very wise saying.
Knowledge without participating in the world means nothing.
And knowing how to behave without doing so is nothing too.
