However wise you may be already, on this Path you have much to learn; so much that here also there must be discrimination, and you must think carefully what is worth learning. All knowledge (1) is useful, and one day you will have all knowledge; but while you have only part, take care that it is the most useful part.
God is Wisdom as well as Love; and the more wisdom you have the more you can manifest of Him. Study then, but study first that which will most help you to help others.
Work patiently at your studies, not that men may think you wise, not even that you may have the happiness of being wise, but because only the wise man can be wisely helpful. However much you may wish to help, if you are ignorant you may do more harm than good. (Krishnamurti, AFM, 27-8.)J. Krishnamurti, At the Feet of the Master. Adyar: Theosophical Publishing House, 1974; c1910, 27-8.
