I am looking for a particular quote that either has the words "exploration" and "wisdom" or relates to those two concepts together. In essence, I am looking for a quote that the concept of exploring will enhance one's wisdom or knowledge.

For example, an Ansel Adams Quote,

“In wisdom gathered over time I have found that every experience is a form of exploration.”

Now, I am living out my life in my corner, taunting myself with the spiteful and useless consolation that an intelligent man cannot become anything seriously, and it is only the fool who becomes"

- Fyodor Dostoevsky
