from the wisdom of Don Juan by Carlos Castaneda

A man goes to knowledge as he goes to war: wide awake, w/ fear, w/ respect, and w/ absolute assurance. Going to knowledge or going to war in any other manner is a mistake and whoever makes it will live to regret his steps. When a man has fulfilled those 4 requisites there are no mistakes for which he will have to account; under such conditions his acts lose the blundering quality of a fool's acts.
If such a man fails, or suffers a defeat, he will have lost only a battle, and there will be no pitiful regrets over that. A man of knowledge is one who has followed truthfully the hardships of learning, a man who has, w/out rushing or w/out faltering, gone as far as he can in unraveling the secrets of power and knowledge. To become a man of knowledge one must challenge and defeat his 4 natural enemies: fear, clarity, power, and old age.
