Enter the Door - 18

While you keep certain doors open, such as the door of imagining that you can dominate your own learning with insufficient tools, you cannot open – and go through – the door of a greater understanding. This is why Saadi, for instance, says (in his Bostan, The Orchard): ‘The door of illumination is open to those for whom other doors are closed.’
