Information is not knowledge

“Information is not knowledge. Information is not wisdom. You do not live by facts, you live by the moment. And the sitting before the teacher, who passes to you the knowledge, is like taking a photograph. By the light, the image of what is in front of you is implanted in your heart. That is education”.

– Sidna Shaykh Dr Abdalqadir as-Sufi
