An astronomer who was vain and full of his knowledge went on his travels and visited Kushyar the Sage, teacher of Avicenna. But Kushyar would have nothing to do with him, and declined to teach him in any way. The astronomer was taking his leave, in sadness, when Kushyar said: ‘Your belief that you know so much has the effect of making you equal to a container completely full of water. Because of that, like the vessel, you are unable to admit any more. But the fullness is the repletion of vanity, and the fact is that you are really empty, no matter how you feel.’
