Dignity without wisdom can be easily corrupted by pride. Generosity without wisdom can be corrupted by self-flattery. Without wisdom, you cannot be a perfect person — meaning that you cannot be free from complicated mind. Without this freedom, your good qualities always risk being corrupted.

— Kyabgön Phakchok Rinpoche
