Whatever value we would attach to education or knowledge itself,

yet the highest title of praise in our eyes will be wisdom.

Neither wealth, nor power and strength

will repay stupidity and will not replace wisdom;

without wisdom strength or meaning will  

 give the impression of some physical rare phenomenon ,

and only wisdom will be an impressive spiritual human phenomenon.

Andrey Sheptytsky
