„A thousand ages onward led
Their joys and sorrows to that hour;
No wisdom weighed, no word was said,
For only what we were had power.“

—  George William Russell Irish writer, editor, critic, poet, and artistic painter 1867 - 1935

By Still Waters (1906)
Kontext: Aye, after victory, the crown;
Yet through the fight no word of cheer;
And what would win and what go down
No word could help, no light make clear.
A thousand ages onward led
Their joys and sorrows to that hour;
No wisdom weighed, no word was said,
For only what we were had power.

„Knowledge is proud that he has learned so much;
Wisdom is humble that he knows no more.“

—  William Cowper, The Task

Line 92.
The Task (1785), Book VI, Winter Walk at Noon
Kontext: Knowledge, a rude unprofitable mass,
The mere materials with which wisdom builds,
Till smoothed and squared and fitted to its place,
Does but encumber whom it seems to enrich.
Knowledge is proud that he has learned so much;
Wisdom is humble that he knows no more.
Books are not seldom talismans and spells.
