"Not having heard something is not as good as having heard it; having heard it is not as good as having seen it; having seen it is not as good as knowing it; knowing it is not as good as putting it into practice." 

- John Knoblock translation of "Xunzi" by Xun Kuang (312-230 B.C.) Book 8, Chapter 11.
