“The right motive for seeking self-knowledge, is the attainment of knowledge, and self-knowledge is worth seeking by virtue of its being knowledge, and not by virtue of its pertaining to self. The main requisite for acquiring self-knowledge is pure love. Seek knowledge for pure love, and self-knowledge eventually crowns the effort. The fact of someone growing impatient, is proof positive that they work for reward, and not for love.“

~ H.P. Blavatsky: Isis Unveiled
