“Do you wish to be great? Then begin by being.
Do you desire to construct a vast and lofty
fabric? Think first about the foundations of
humility. The higher your structure is to
be, the deeper must be its foundation. ”
– Saint Augustine
One could learn endless amounts of metaphysical
knowledge and understand the concepts from a purely
intellectual level, but did they really ‘click’? It is one
thing to understand something; it is another to fully
‘realize’ a subject and really get it, or yet another if
it becomes a part of you.
