A quotation by Ramon Llull
If understanding followed no rule at all, there would be no good in the understanding nor in the matter understood, and to remain in ignorance would be the greatest good.
Without producing, no man can love, nor can he understand or remember, nor have the power of feeling and being.
Man is nobler for his knowledge than for the gold and goods he possesses, even though these be gained with great good will.
