Wisdom will not enter a deceitful soul

Wisdom will not enter a deceitful soul

Whoever would arrive at this theoretical knowledge must first pursue practical knowledge with all his might and main. For this practical knowledge can be acquired without theoretical, but theoretical cannot possibly be gained without practical. There are certain stages, so distinct, and arranged in such a way that our humility may be able to mount on high; and if these follow each other in turn in the order I have mentioned, we can reach to a height to which we could not fly if the first step were missing. In vain then does anyone strive for the vision of God who does not shun the stains of sins, “because wisdom will not enter a deceitful soul, nor dwell in a body enslaved to sin” (Wisdom 1:4).

St. John Cassian, Conferences, 14.2
