Seeking Knowledge

“Some seek knowledge for the sake of knowledge:
That is curiosity;
Others seek knowledge so that
they themselves may be known:
That is vanity;
But there are still others who seek knowledge
in Order to serve and edify others;
And that is charity.”

Bernard of Clairvaux, 1090-1153
French abbot
