Theory without practice (Imam Hujwiri)

Practice what you have learned, for theory without practice is like a spirit without a body. One who is content with learning alone is not learned, for the truly learned seek more than mere words. Divine guidance entails self-mortification, without which contemplation is unattainable.

- Al-Hujwiri, Kashf al-Mahjub
