|For with much wisdom comes much sorrow;|
the more knowledge, the more grief.
This passage is not a deterrent to getting wisdom or knowledge. It is an observation by a wise man of how knowledge or wisdom without God will shape us. To try to acquire academics without the compass of Scripture has taken many people into the darkness of a world where ethics and morals are objects to be used. This quickly descends to cynicism, and the world goes from a mysterious and beautiful poem to a dry dissertation. To remember the Creator of one's youth is more than a romantic notion: it's a lifeline that propels us to unlock the mysteries of God's creation.
