Where does insight come from?

Only knowledge gained through experience, the fruit of living and suffering, fills the heart with the wisdom of love, instead of crushing it with the disappointment of boredom and final oblivion. It is not the results of our own speculation, but the golden harvest of what we have lived through and suffered through, that has power to enrich the heart and nourish the spirit.

–Karl Rahner, Encounters with Silence (Westminster, Maryland: Newman Press, 1965. 30)
