Intellect is good and desirable to the extent it brings you to the King’s door. Once you have reached His door, then divorce the intellect!
From this time on, the intellect will be to your loss and a brigand. When you reach Him, entrust yourself to Him! You have no business with the how and the wherefore. Know that the intellect’s cleverness all belongs to the vestibule. Even if it possesses the knowledge of Plato, it is still outside of the palace.
