Is it self-contradictory

to write or say the following?
To believe ourselves to be custodians of truth is to become its opposite, … stale, self-righteous, or rigid.

Ideas and memories do not hold liberating or healing power. There is no such state as enlightened retirement, where we can live on the bounty of past attainments. …

A bulging portfolio of spiritual experiences matters little if it does not have the power to sustain us through the inevitable moments of grief, loss, and change.

Knowledge and achievements matter little if we do not … know how to touch the heart of another and be touched.
