It is true that while initiating the act of gathering knowledge for the purpose of attaining a higher form of intellect and development, one must also acquire wisdom.
Knowledge is the learning of things based on study, while wisdom is the learning of life based on experience. Both, in delicate balance, must be obtained for true enlightenment.
Such as the fanatic of faith is not a wise man without true knowledge, so to is the disciple of knowledge also not wise without a little faith.
There is a fragile force of nature at work to be discovered, both through science and in spirit. You must be grounded on both sides to attune to it.
