العِلْم شيء لا يعطيك بعضَه حتّى تعطيه كلّك فإنْ أعطيتَه كلّك فأنت من إعطائه لك البعضَ على خطرٍ

Knowledge is something that does not grant you a portion of itself unless you give yourself completely to it. But even if you give yourself completely to it you can never be sure that it grants you that portion.
(al-Naẓẓām, c. 775-845)
