Proverbs 16:16

Adam Clarke
Bible Commentary

How much better - to get wisdom than gold? - Who believes this, though spoken by the wisest of men, under Divine inspiration?

Ellen G. White
Mind, Character, and Personality, vol. 1, 105.1

None need to be ignorant unless they choose to be thus. Knowledge is to be constantly acquired; it is the food for the mind. With us who look for Christ's coming should be the resolve that we will not live this life constantly on the losing side of the question but in understanding in spiritual attainments. Be men of God, on the gaining side. 1MCP 105.1

This Day With God, 253.3

God desires that the youth shall become skillful, thorough laborers, wearing Christ's yoke, lifting His burdens. “Ye are labourers together with God,” He says. The children and youth should seek most earnestly to advance in understanding, in mental acquirements; their aim should be in spiritual as well as temporal things, to work upon the plan of addition. “Giving all diligence,” the apostle Peter says, “add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge; and to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness; and to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity. For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that he shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ” (2 Peter 1:5-8).... TDG 253.3
