For some reason I found this reassuring today:

"The knowledge of wickedness is not wisdom, neither at any time the counsel of sinners prudence."

Ecclesiasticus 19:22

It can be hard to tell the difference between knowledge and wisdom; and it can be very difficult for a person like me, whose besetting sin is pride in her intellectual accomplisments (such as they are), to remember that knowledge has its proper limits.
