St Bonaventure's Reminders

Do not assume that mere
Reading will suffice without fervor,
Speculation without devotion,
Investigation without admiration,
Observation without exaltation,
Industry without piety,
Knowledge without love,
Understanding without humility,
Study without divine grace.

~ St. Bonaventure (1221–1274)   
from The Journey of the Mind to God
